Daniel Hemric and RCR's Poppy Bank Chevrolet Team Gain 10 Positions to Earn Top-15 Finish in First Sonoma Raceway Start

"I thought we did a great job of making the most of our day here at Sonoma Raceway. We didn't have track position to start the race, but Luke Lambert did a great job of not worrying about points and trying to get us track position instead. Every time we did it we gained four or five spots. I'm proud of everyone on this No. 8 team and this Poppy Bank Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for sticking with me all weekend. We got better every lap and that's what our first road race as a group is all about. We'll regroup and go to Chicagoland Speedway and try to continue to get better."

Daniel Hemric Earns Stage Points, Records 12th-Place Finish in Chevrolet Accessories Camaro ZL1 at Michigan International Speedway

"I was fairly happy with how this No. 8 Chevrolet Accessories Camaro ZL1 took off to start the race. I feel like we had the ability to make some good moves. That made me feel more confident than I needed to be, and I hung myself out a couple of times and lost a little bit of track position. Early in the race we tried to take fuel only and it just killed our balance. After that, we started chipping away at the positions ahead of us and were able to score some points at the end of Stage 2. We were setting ourselves up to have good track position to start Stage 3, but we had an issue with the air hose getting caught on the splitter and that caused us to lose all of our track position. I was able to drive back inside the top 10, which shows the speed we had in our Chevrolet Accessories Camaro ZL1. When that last caution came out, we got stuck in the dreaded bottom lane, where nobody wanted to be all day, and got shuffled back on the restart. We salvaged a 12th-place finish. We'll learn from today and come back here later in the year ready for an even better result."

Daniel Hemric Leads Laps, Finishes 13th with No. 8 Kalahari Resorts & Conventions Chevrolet at Pocono Raceway

"I thought we did a really good job of maximizing our day with this No. 8 Kalahari Resorts & Conventions Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. We struggled a little bit too much on restarts, and I have to figure out how to position myself better to not give up so much track position. In the race the car took off too loose on corner entry to attack. I thought we would never get that connected to make some decent lap times. As soon as Luke Lambert and this team were able to make some adjustments to this No. 8 Kalahari Chevrolet, we were able to do that and made forward progress. Staying out long on the next-to-last run and pitting late for right side tires and fuel gave us a huge amount of track position and made our lap times much better than the cars around us. The clean air helped us get track position as well. I wish we could have maintained in the top 10 over the course of that last restart, but it just didn't work out. We'll go to work, build off this momentum and look to have another strong day next week in Michigan."

Early Contact Hinders Daniel Hemric's Efforts in First Coca-Cola 600 Start with Cessna Chevrolet

"I really hate this night did not turn out better than it did for everyone on this Cessna Chevrolet Team. Luke Lambert and everyone on this team gave me a really fast No. 8 Cessna Chevy. We showed that in practice throughout the weekend and in qualifying on Thursday night. The car took off really well to start the race but we got so many cautions in Stage 1 that we made a strategy call to stay out and were able to grab the lead by doing that. Being able to lead in my first Coca-Cola 600 was a cool experience for sure, but the cars with fresher tires were much quicker on the restart. One of them made contact with the right rear and sent me into the outside wall off Turn 4. I'm really proud of everyone on this team, because they never gave up. We hit pit road as much as possible the rest of the night and they made repairs as best they could. We kept adjusting on it and just tried to do all we could to get to the end. When the caution came out with about 35 laps to go, we took the wave around to get one lap back and hoped for a quick caution, but we never got that when we needed and had to hit pit road under green with 20 laps to go. We will head to Pocono and try to change our luck there."

Daniel Hemric's Strong Showing in All-Star Open Comes to an End After Wreck in Segment 2

"When you come to Charlotte Motor Speedway for NASCAR All-Star weekend the only thing that matters is winning, and I am disappointed we didn't get that done tonight. This No. 8 Bass Pro Shops/Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was fast as can be, and we showed that by winning the pole on Friday night. We led the majority of the opening segment during the All-Star Open and I thought we were in a good spot to transfer into the All-Star Race but the caution came out and the car was just too tight to hang onto the lead on the overtime restart. We came in during the stage break and Luke Lambert and the guys put four tires on our Bass Pro Shops/Caterpillar Chevrolet and made a chassis adjustment that really improved the handling. We were racing hard with the No. 47 when we got together and it ended our day.  We had one of the fastest cars in the field and it is really a shame we didn't get the chance to race in the main event tonight."

Daniel Hemric Records 25th-Place Finish with Caterpillar Chevrolet in First Dover Start

"They call this place The Monster Mile for a reason, and it was a monster to us today. We fought the handling of the No. 8 Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 all weekend, but Luke Lambert and these guys didn't give up on it and kept working from the time we unloaded and all throughout the race. We never did get it to where we needed it to be and then on top of that, we had to pit with less than 20 laps to go for a loose wheel. We will take what we learned today and make sure we are in a better spot coming back here in the fall. I have to say thanks to all of the fans that came back today after yesterday's rain out. The crowd was impressive for a Monday race, and hopefully they enjoyed the show."

Daniel Hemric Earns First-Career Top-Five Finish in Caterpillar Chevrolet at Talladega Superspeedway

"It was a successful day for us, that's for sure. Thanks to everyone on this No. 8 Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team for sticking with me all year; this was the run we needed. We earned some stage points, brought home a clean Camaro, and scored our first top-five finish as a group. We weren't able to be too aggressive all day but a great job by Chevrolet and all of our guys to stay committed. We did everything we could through the restarts and green flag stops to stay together and fortunately we were able to keep our Chevrolet on the bottom and had a couple of us lined up there together in the closing laps. The racing was wild. I tried to stay dedicated and patient throughout the race, and that was the most difficult thing for us. I'm proud of all the effort put forth by all of the Chevrolet teams and drivers to get Chevy back in Victory lane, that helps us all on the manufacturer side of things. Hopefully these fans enjoyed the show; I know I did."

Daniel Hemric and Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Team Use Richmond Raceway Top-20 Finish as Momentum Builder

"Coming out of Richmond with a top-20 finish? We'll take it. This No. 8 team is focused on putting one foot in front of the other. It's great to have a group of guys that haven't given up on me. We didn't finish exactly where we wanted, but we definitely out-kicked our coverage from the positions we've put ourselves in over the last few weeks. We'll take it and hopefully it's a building moment for everyone on this No. 8 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet team. I still love racing at Richmond and I feel like I know what I need  when we come here in the Fall to contend and run where our teammate Austin Dillon was tonight. Those guys had good speed all weekend, so hopefully we can trend a little bit in that direction and build on it."

Daniel Hemric's Bristol Cup Debut Hits Snag When Caterpillar/ Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet is Spun Early

"Man, what a day. We knew going into today's race we had a tall task ahead of us, but a few things in the opening stage made it an even tougher day. When the first caution of the race happened, I had slowed down but got hit from behind and received damage to the nose of the No. 8 Caterpillar/Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The pit crew did a good job making the necessary repairs, and we were logging some laps in the top 20 when we just got hit from behind by the No. 15, spun and backed into the wall. That hurt the handling of the car pretty bad, and it was all I could do to hang on for the rest of the day. This was definitely a frustrating race, but the crew never gave up all weekend and made the most of the situation. Here's hoping we find some good luck soon. We just need a clean race, and that is the goal next weekend in Richmond."

Late-Race Incident Hurts Daniel Hemric's Day at Texas Motor Speedway

"After our strong qualifying effort with the No. 8 Bulwark FR/Wayne Workwear Chevrolet, clearly this was not the result we had hoped for. The car was strong all weekend long and felt good in the pack. We were too free in traffic but Luke Lambert (crew chief) and the guys worked on the handling each time we came to pit road. I made slight contact with the wall off Turn 2 late in the final stage and that eventually caused the right rear tire to go down. The guys did all they could to clear the tire, but the rubber wrapped around everything under the car and we lost a lot of laps getting it fixed. We will keep our heads high and look to rebound next week at Bristol Motor Speedway."

Martinsville Speedway Race Serves as a Learning Experience for Rookie Daniel Hemric and The Bass Pro Shops/TRACKER Boats Chevrolet Team

"This weekend certainly did not go as planned, but it was not for a lack of effort on the part of Luke Lambert and the guys that work on this No. 8 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet. This was my first time here since 2016 in the Truck Series, so there was a bit of a learning curve but we showed some speed in final practice on Friday. We struggled in qualifying but were able to move forward once the race went green. It just seemed like we could not catch a break today. We missed the free pass by one position a couple of times and the cautions didn't fall where we needed them. We had to pit under green for a loose wheel late in the race, then again for a flat right front tire with less than 20 laps to go. Things didn't go as planned, but we kept the car out of trouble and learned a lot for when we come back to Martinsville Speedway later in the year."

Contact with the Outside Wall Hurts Daniel Hemric's Top-10 Efforts in Fontana

"I hate it for everyone on this No. 8 Liberty National Life Insurance Chevrolet team. We had a strong run going and had worked from the 17th spot to racing inside the top 10 by the end of Stage 1. I was racing in heavy traffic once we went back green, and the air just sucked me up the track and I made contact with the outside wall exiting Turn 4. That damage cut the right rear tire and we had to pit under green to repair the damage. Unfortunately, we had another flat right rear, which caused even more damage. Nobody on this team gave up and I am proud of them for doing all they could to repair the damage. The car still had speed, but without the help of many cautions, we never really had the chance to get those laps back and then we had a flat left front in the closing laps, which hurt us even more."

Daniel Hemric Finishes 18th in Okuma Chevrolet After Leading Laps at ISM Raceway

"We battled all day with this No. 8 Okuma Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. We took off too loose to start the race, but Luke Lambert and all of the guys on this team kept working on it and got it to where it was fairly connected. I could  make a little hay later in the runs, but about the middle point of the run the handling issues started to show up again. We used some pit strategy to stay out and were able to lead some laps, which is always nice. I'm proud of everyone on this team for never giving up and fighting all weekend long to work on this Okuma Chevy. We learned a lot this weekend and look to apply that next week in Fontana to close out this West Coast swing."

Daniel Hemric and the No. 8 Caterpillar Team Take Notes and Learn a Lot with New Package at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

"We just missed it a little bit today with our No. 8. Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, with this new package. I couldn't go through the corners like I needed to at the start of the race, which set us back and caused us to fall down a lap. Luke Lambert and the team didn't give up though and we kept fighting and working on our Camaro. It started to come back to me towards the end of the race, and I was able to carry gas into the corners better than I could at the start of the day. We just ran out of time to really make anything up. I'm confident in this team's ability to bounce back from this. We know what we need to work on and will regroup to get back after it at ISM Raceway."

Daniel Hemric's Top-Five Run in Red Kap/Alsco Chevrolet Ruined by Flat Right Front Tire Late at Atlanta Motor Speedway 

"It was a crazy, crazy day. It is definitely heart breaking not to get a top-five finish for these guys that work on this No. 8 Red Kap/Alsco Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. We put ourselves in position to have a solid day, even though I made some mistakes on pit road - way too many mistakes than you can afford to make at this level and that is something I will work to clean up on my end. Luke Lambert and everyone on this team still gave me a shot to run inside the top five late in the race, but a flat right front tire in the closing laps ruined what was shaping up as a strong day. The good thing is that this serves as some motivation for everyone at RCR and on this No. 8 team. Those are the kinds of race cars we need to bring to the racetrack every week to give ourselves a shot. It was fun to drive and fun to pass people, and I am looking forward to get to Las Vegas next week."

Daniel Hemric Collected in 'Big One' After Leading Laps with No. 8 Bass Pro Shops/Caterpillar Chevrolet in First Daytona 500

"This No. 8 team has busted their tails over the last two weeks trying to prepare for the Daytona 500. It was good to lead a few laps and run up front at times.  I thought we were in good shape on the second to last restart before the crash.  We lined up sixth and we got hung up behind a car that had damage and it drug the whole top line back.  You get that accordion effect on corner entry and I saw the No. 95 get turned around at the front of the field and at that point there was a road block across the track. You're trying to make moves in the pack, but you're going so fast and everyone is trying to get to the end of the race and there is just nowhere to go. I hate it for everyone on this Bass Pro Shops / Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team. The car was damaged but we were still going to be able to finish, but NASCAR told us to park it for moving under the red. The car rolled down the banking and moved away from the incident so they could get to the other wrecked cars. At the end of the day, we will count our blessings and go on to Atlanta."
