No. 8 Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
Daniel Hemric and the No. 8 Caterpillar Chevrolet team struggled during the first half of the race on Sunday in Las Vegas, despite starting in the 5th position. Crew chief Luke Lambert made a number of adjustments that improved the handling of the car, but the race went caution free with the exception of the stage breaks. This made it difficult for Hemric to recover the lost track position and saddled him with a 23rd-place finish.
"We just missed it a little bit today with our No. 8. Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, with this new package. I couldn't go through the corners like I needed to at the start of the race, which set us back and caused us to fall down a lap. Luke Lambert and the team didn't give up though and we kept fighting and working on our Camaro. It started to come back to me towards the end of the race, and I was able to carry gas into the corners better than I could at the start of the day. We just ran out of time to really make anything up. I'm confident in this team's ability to bounce back from this. We know what we need to work on and will regroup to get back after it at ISM Raceway."
