– John Hunter Nemechek and GMS Racing will utilize chassis no. 224 this weekend at Darlington Raceway. This chassis has been run four times this season by Nemechek. Atlanta Motor Speedway (start: 10th/finish: 20th), Auto Club Speedway (start: 10th/finish: 28th), Pocono Raceway (start: 23rd/finish: 12th) and lastly at Chicagoland Speedway (start: 15th/finish: 11th).


“I’m really excited to get back to circle-track racing this weekend. This will be my first time going to Darlington and I’ve heard it’s a track with a lot of characteristics. It’s been around a long time and makes for some really great racing. This GMS Racing team showed speed last year with Chase (Elliott) in the car so they have a solid notebook to go off of. Hopefully we can unload with some speed and race up front. “
