FINISH: 3rd
POINTS: 10th

Notes & Quotes:
- Nemechek and the GMS Racing team qualified ninth but had to drop to the back due to unapproved adjustments.
- Nemechek posted his second top-10 finish in three races at Bristol Motor Speedway.
- Nemechek is currently scored in the tenth-position in the driver standings and is 8 points behind Justin Haley who is in ninth-place.

"We had to go to the back, I don't even know how many times, I lost count. Had an issue at the start of the race, sped on pit road, had a tire go down, went a lap down and got the lucky dog. Needless to say this team never gave up and I can't thank them enough for all their hard work and sticking with me this year. It's been up and down but I feel like we should be able to get some momentum on our side going forward into The Playoffs and I'm looking forward to it."

"We had a solid No. 23 Chevy Accessories Camaro today and leaving Mid-Ohio the way we did is really disappointing. I spun early in the race and fought back into the top-10 but then was in the wrong place at the wrong time when the wreck in Turn 2 happened. Allgaier got turned around and hit our right front which led to the suspension failure. I'm ready to have a break at road-course racing and get to Bristol next weekend. We need to get this bad luck off our back and start bringing home top-five's and top-10's again."
