“There’s so much give and take throughout the race to try and work with alliance cars, but you have to be up front at the end to win a speedway race. It is so much easier to say you have a plan and make the moves you want to make when you are watching and preparing for these races, but when you are in the moment, anything can happen. There's a lot of positives to take from what I just experienced right here. It’s on me for being late on the block, and I will learn from it. It's unfortunate, but that’s how superspeedway racing goes. A big shoutout as well for the safety team helping me.” - Daniel
Daniel Hemric qualified ninth for the Ag-Pro 300 at Talladega Superspeedway.
Hemric fired off strong in the opening stage, leading multiple laps before getting shuffled in the field on the last lap, finishing 12th in the stage.
In stage two, Hemric was happy with the balance of the No. 11 Cirkul Chevrolet, and went on to finish fifth as stage two finished under caution.
Pitting for fuel only, Hemric led the field to green on the restart of the final stage. Taking right sides only in his next pit stop, Hemric restarted as the second car on the outside lane with six laps to go and quickly took the lead back. Going for the win in the closing laps, Hemric was involved in "The Big One", as the No. 11 Cirkul Chevrolet ended up on its roof. Hemric climbed out of the car under his own power and was scored 21st.
