During the Stage One caution, Nemechek came to pit road for four tires, fuel and an adjustment after reporting that his Chevrolet was getting tighter as the run went on, especially on exit. Nemechek battled within the top-10 majority of the second Stage but ended up finishing Stage Two in the 11th-position. On lap 164, Nemechek got loose off of Turn 2 causing him to spin and had to pit for right side tires and came back down pit road to put on left side tires. Nemechek battled back into the top-10 and ended up finishing in the eighth-position.

-Nemechek scores three top-10 finishes in a row with his eighth-place finish today at Kansas, his and the teams 16th top-10 of the 2019 season.


“I would say that we struggled speed wise most of the weekend. We were loose, we were tight, spun out, it was just an up and down day for us, a rollercoaster day of emotions for sure. I enjoy the next three tracks that we go to, so I’m hoping we can keep this top-10 momentum going and finish off the year strong for Maury (Gallagher, GMS Racing Owner) and the whole organization.”
