– John Hunter Nemechek and GMS Racing will utilize chassis no. 216 this weekend at Iowa Speedway. This chassis has been run three times this season by Nemechek at ISM Raceway (start: 13th/finish: 9th), Richmond Raceway (start: 11th/finish: 7th) and at Iowa Speedway (start: 6th/finish: 8th).


“Short track racing is right up my alley. Iowa Speedway has always been good to me in both the Truck Series and the Xfinity Series. We are coming back with a whole new set up since the last race there didn’t go as planned. The guys have been working really hard to get this car ready for Iowa, so a big thanks to them. Hopefully we can unload with some speed and the balance is close so we can get back on our top-10 streak. Last weekend really hurt us, points wise, so we need to focus on getting as many of those points back as we can get.”
