Michigan International Speedway
Daniel Hemric will make his second NASCAR Cup Series start at Michigan International Speedway during this weekend's 400-mile event. During his first Cup Start at the two-mile, D-shaped oval, Hemric started 11th and finished 12th, earning points in Stage 2. Hemric also has two NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at Michigan, finishing second in June 2018.
We were just at Michigan International Speedway a few weeks ago and you recorded a 12th-place finish in that event. What can you take from what was learned that weekend to apply to this weekend's event?
"The last Michigan race was probably a turning point for us as a company. We thought we had all the potential there to perform like we did at Pocono Raceway. Now knowing how far our cars have come in the weeks since, I'm excited to get back to Michigan. I know where our cars did well and the direction we took to improve, so I'm looking forward to applying those lessons to our race weekend at Michigan.
NASCAR YouTube Tour Hemric is slated to give a 10-minute behind-the-scenes look at the NASCAR garage area and how the No. 8 Bass Pro Shops team is wrapping up opening practice and preparing for qualifying on the NASCAR YouTube Channel on Friday, August 9. The video will be posted to NASCAR's YouTube Channel throughout the race weekend.
Meet the Driver Hemric is scheduled to be at the Richard Childress Racing merchandise hauler located in the Michigan International Speedway fan midway area to sign autographs on Sunday, August 11, starting at 11:30 a.m. ET.
