Race 31: Talladega
No. 8 Liberty National / RCR 50th Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
Daniel Hemric will make his second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start at Talladega Superspeedway during this weekend's 500-mile event. The Kannapolis, North Carolina, native started fifth and finished fifth in his first start at the 2.66-mile speedway in April.
A Touch of Gold
This weekend at Talladega Superspeedway, Liberty National is celebrating RCR's 50th anniversary with a special gold-colored wrap scheme on Hemric's No. 8 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
Meet the Driver
Hemric is scheduled to take part in a fan Q&A session in the new Talladega Garage Experience on Sunday, Oct. 13, starting at 10:15 a.m. local time.
"The dynamic of speedway racing over the last three races has really changed with the manufacturers working closely together. We ran fifth there earlier this year, and I feel like that was the first all-in Team Chevy effort in a superspeedway race. That plan was executed to a near perfection, as we put a Chevrolet in Victory Lane and had six of the top-10 finishing positions. I'm sure you will see a lot with each make and manufacturer again this weekend. Whenever we go to the superspeedways, RCR and ECR Engines bring a lot of power and we know we're going to have really strong race cars. We just have to make right adjustments and put ourselves in a position to capitalize. If you can cycle to the front early in the race you have a good shot at maintaining that throughout the day. You have to have good pit stops and do all the things you can do to keep that track position all day. We were fifth there earlier this year, so hopefully we can improve on that and go for the win. This is our last race with Liberty National as the primary partner on the No. 8 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for the year and they have added some gold to the scheme to honor RCR's 50th anniversary. They've been a great partner all year and we are looking to go out on a high note with them this Sunday."
