Hemric recovers to finish 19th at Chicago
No. 8 Liberty National Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
From Daniel Hemric:
"It was a battle all day at Chicagoland Speedway. At the start of the race, we battled a really evil Chevrolet. The ride quality was rough and we struggled over the bumps and lost a lot of track position. We made numerous adjustments to improve handling, and Luke Lambert's changes definitely helped. Unfortunately, we were penalized for an uncontrolled tire and that put us multiple laps down. I was proud that we were able to dig ourselves out of that hole and get all three laps back. We were trending in the right direction but a long green flag run at the end of the race hurt our ability to stop and re-rack with the rest of the field. That's the way it goes. It was a tough day for everyone on this Liberty National team but we never quit. I have to thank all of the fans that stuck with us through that wild weather today. It just goes to show why NASCAR fans are the best in sports."
