No. 8 Poppy Bank Chevrolet Camaro
Daniel Hemric will be piloting the No. 8 Poppy Bank Chevrolet for the second of two NXS events at Dover on Sunday.
Hemric will have to start Sunday's race from the rear due to the driver change from Jeb Burton, who will race the No. 8 Chevrolet on Saturday.
In four previous NXS starts at the Monster Mile, Hemric has two top fives and three top 10s with a best finish of third coming in May of 2018.
Hemric has made a combined eight starts at Dover between the NASCAR Cup Series, NXS and the Truck Series, recording a combined three top fives and five top 10s.
Through 13 NXS starts in 2020, Hemric has earned a best finish of second at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May.
“Dover has always been a track that I have enjoyed going to. Whether that be here in the Xfinity Series, or in the trucks or a Cup car, it’s just been a track that has really suited me over the years. That gives me a ton of confidence heading into the second half of this weekend’s doubleheader. Hopefully Jeb (Burton) can have a solid day and be in contention on Saturday and then we can follow suit and fight for the victory on Sunday. I’m ready to get there and see what we can do."
