Quotes:
"Dover is an awesome place to race at because the track is so intense and brutal, mentally and physically. We had a solid showing there in the Spring and every track that we have gone back to this year we have improved at. We made up some ground, points wise, last weekend at The ROVAL to put us tied with the No. 19 and 11 points behind Michael Annett who is right above the Round of 8 cut off line. We need to unload with some speed of the hauler and focus on gaining as many points as we can so that we can advance."


Roval Recap

START: 14th
FINISH: 7th
POINTS: 9th

Notes & Quotes:
- Nemechek started the race from the 14th-position and battled his way into the top-10 with 10 laps to go in Stage One. The GMS Racing team elected for Nemechek not to pit before Stage One ended and finished in the sixth-position, collecting five stage points. In Stage Two, Nemechek was involved in a multi-car incident on the start and had to pit for tires. The team gambled for Nemechek not to pit before the stage concluded but came up one spot short to end Stage Two in the 11th-position. For the final stage, Nemechek capitalized on the late race restarts and ended the race in seventh-position. This was Nemechek's first start at the ROVAL and the teams 14th top-10 this season.
- Nemechek heads into the final race of the Round of 12 in the ninth-position with a total of 2,062 points, 11 points behind Michael Annett who is in the eighth-position.
"The goal was to stay mistake free and let everyone else make them. Besides one hiccup in our day we were able to recover early and bring home a seventh-place finish. There was a lot of beating and banging out there and not a lot of real-estate on the track but it was a lot of fun. We were pretty good on our first run and then not so good on our second but got better for the final stage and we capitalized the late race restarts and had a solid finish and points day. I believe that we are in a decent points position going into Dover next weekend."

Darlington Recap

START: 16th

POINTS: 10th

Notes & Quotes:

- 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.
