– John Hunter Nemechek and GMS Racing will utilize chassis no. 216 this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This chassis has been ran four times this season by Nemechek at ISM Raceway (start: 13th/finish: 9th), Richmond Raceway (start: 11th/finish: 7th), Spring – Iowa Speedway (start: 6th/finish: 8th) and Fall – Iowa Speedway (start: 14th/finish: 3rd).

–┬áSaturday’s race in Las Vegas is the last race of the regular season. Nemechek is currently 11th in Xfinity playoff standings with 4 top-five’s and 12 top-10 finishes.


“We had a really strong showing at Las Vegas back in the Spring. A runner-up finish to Kyle Busch in my first Xfinity start at Las Vegas showed that this team is capable of competing with the Cup affiliated teams and I know that this team can showcase that again this weekend. We know that we have a solid notebook to work out of so hopefully we unload with speed and finish one-spot better than we did in the Spring.”
