– John Hunter Nemechek and GMS Racing will utilize chassis no. 223 this weekend at Kentucky Speedway. This chassis has been run twice this season by Nemechek, once at Charlotte Motor Speedway (start: 14th/finish: 12th) and at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (start: 10th/finish: 2nd).

– Nemechek is currently second in Sunoco Rookie of the Year points, 22 points behind Noah Gragson in first place.

“I am looking forward to heading to Kentucky this weekend. I feel like Turn 3 will be the biggest challenge for myself and this team. You carry a lot of speed into that corner and the turn is so wide and flat it’s hard to get your car to hook the bottom line. It’s honestly so different than any other mile-and-a-half that we go to with the flat corner and then you pick up the banking, it’s wild. The first time we ran this chassis we had a runner up result at Las Vegas. Hopefully we can finish one spot better and put the Chevrolet Accessories Camaro in Victory Lane. “
