"It was a decent race. We just needed strategy to work out better there at the end. I believe we had a top-six car all day and that's where we ran most of the day. A huge shout out to all of my guys. We've have had a rough few weeks and I'm glad we can put all of that behind us. We will carry this momentum into next weekend for the first round of the Playoffs at Richmond and do our best to get locked into the Round of 8."

Quotes:
"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."

We just can't catch a break but we will move on and get after it in Las Vegas next weekend. Thank you to Fire Alarm Services and all of our supporters for sticking with us. Onto better results!"


Darlington Recap

START: 16th
FINISH: 21st
POINTS: 10th

Notes & Quotes:
- Nemechek and the GMS Racing team bounced back after an early spin but then experienced fuel pick-up issues and had to pit under green flag conditions multiple times.
- Nemechek is currently scored in the tenth-position in the driver standings and is 53 points behind Justin Haley who is in ninth-place.
"It was a long day at Darlington. We spun early, rebounded back on the lead lap and got back into the mix. Then had a fuel pick-up problem on the same amount of laps in Stage One and Stage Two, which forced us to pit under green and go multiple laps down. We were able to get one lap back, but just needed a caution to get where we needed to be. Sadly you will have weekends like this but it's all about how you rebound. Onto Indianapolis next weekend.
