– Nemechek will compete in his third Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race in the No. 36 Front Row Motorsports entry. Texas Motor Speedway (start: 29th/finish: 21st) and ISM Raceway (start: 26th/finish: 27th).

– Nemechek has four NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series starts at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In those four starts, he has one top-five, two top 10’s and has led 24 laps.


“I’m excited to head to Homestead this weekend. We got the opportunity to go down and test there a few months back and I felt like it was really successful. We have been on a solid run streak for the last couple races and hopefully that momentum will carry over to the final race of the season and end it on a positive note. This season has been a roller-coaster ride of emotions so to finish strong for Maury (Gallagher, owner) and the GMS Racing guys would be a great way to end out the year.”
