Darlington Recap

START: 16th

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.

Quotes:
"Road course racing has not been our friend this year. We had a decent finish at Watkins Glen and then had a suspension issue at Mid-Ohio that ended our day early. We have some momentum after last weekend's third-place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway. It boosted everyone's confidence to show what this small team is capable of achieving.

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."

Quotes:

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."
