Get to Know Daniel Hemric & the NASCAR team.
Daniel Hemric enters his first full season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series as the driver of the No. 8 Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for Richard Childress Racing. The Kannapolis, North Carolina, native made two previous Cup Series starts during the 2018 season at Richmond Raceway and the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval. During the 2017 and 2018 season, Hemric competed full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for RCR, accumulating 14 top-three, 23 top-five and 39 top-10 finishes, while earning five pole awards. He qualified for the NASCAR Playoffs during both seasons and each year advanced to the Championship 4 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Away from the track, Hemric enjoys spending time golfing, traveling and working around the house, although he also enjoys watching racing at local tracks around the country. Racing is so deep to his core that he even married one of his former competitors, Kenzie Ruston. The pair met racing Legends Cars in North Carolina and were married in January 2017.
