“It’s going to be great to get back behind the wheel of this No. 8 Poppy Bank Chevy when we get to the track on Tuesday in Darlington. Hopefully we can go out there and give everyone watching at home some quality entertainment during these times. I feel really confident that we can have a really strong run and get some positive momentum on our side. I just can’t wait to get back going and get to work with Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and all the guys on this No. 8 team.” – Daniel Hemric
