In two previous NXS starts at Atlanta, Hemric has earned an average finish of 10.0.
Hemric has also made a combined three starts at the 1.54- mile speedway between the NASCAR Cup Series and the NASCAR Gander Outdoors & RV Truck Series, scoring a best finish of fourth in the latter in 2016.
In 37 NXS starts on tracks between 1 and 2 miles in length, Hemric has 11 top fives, 22 top 10s and two poles.
Since the return to NXS action in May, Hemric has recorded three-consecutive top-10 finishes, with a best result of second coming at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 25.
“Atlanta should be a lot of fun on Saturday. It’s such a unique, fast track. With it’s worn out surface, you can really race from the top to the bottom of the track throughout the run. I feel like we will unload with a lot of speed in our JR Motorsports Camaro and hopefully we can build off of that second-place finish at the last mile-and-a-half we raced on in Charlotte and get that one spot better with our Poppy Bank Chevrolet.”
