Daniel Hemric and the No. 8 team enter the Round of 8 in the playoff grid for the owner’s championship as the eighth seed, 24 points behind the fourth and final cutoff position.
Hemric earned a seventh-place finish earlier this season at Kansas.
Overall, in three previous starts in the NXS at Kansas, Hemric has earned a best finish of second, coming in 2018.
This weekend in Kansas, Hemric and the No. 8 team will again be honoring the life and legacy of John Andretti and the #CheckIt4Andretti campaign with Andretti’s 1995-96 Cup Series scheme.
“I’m definitely ready to head to Kansas with this No. 8 team and continue our fight for this owner’s championship. It’s great knowing that we made it into the Round of 8 and now we just need to go out and continue to execute and do what we can to make that final four in Phoenix. We had a really solid run here in July and I feel extremely confident that we can back that up again, especially with the return of the John Andretti Tribute scheme. I can’t thank Poppy Bank enough for allowing us to run this scheme again and hopefully we can come away with a really solid day for the entire Andretti family.”
