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."
