Late wreck thwarts strong run at 'Dega
No. 8 Liberty National Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
From Daniel Hemric:
"We had a strong No. 8 Liberty National Chevrolet at Talladega, and that showed when we were able to drive to the lead on Sunday before the rain fell. We came back Monday and remained a contender throughout the day in the pack. We took damage to the right rear quarter panel early in the race when I was hit from behind coming to pit road under green, but the guys did a good job fixing that at the stage break. I felt like we were a serious contender for the win, but when that big one happened late in the race into Turn 3, my left front tire hooked on the No. 4 car and we drove right into another car. That damaged the right side nose and fender and unfortunately we lost a lap on pit road making repairs. We should have finished better than 21st, but that's Talladega for you."
