No. 20 Mobil 1 Toyota GR Supra News and Notes

  • NEMECHEK AT DAYTONA: John Hunter Nemechek has made three NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at Daytona International Speedway. In those starts, his best finish was an eighth-place result in February 2019. Last August at Daytona, Nemechek was collected in a multi-car accident and finished 35th. In five NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races at Daytona, Nemechek posted a best finish of fourth in February 2017. He also recorded a pair of 11th-place finishes in two NASCAR Cup Series starts at the 2.5-mile track in 2020.
  • CHANGE OF SCENERY: Nemechek moves to Joe Gibbs Racing’s Xfinity Series program fulltime after two seasons in the Truck Series with Kyle Busch Motorsports. The 25-year-old North Carolina native is no stranger to JGR after making three starts for the organization in each of the past two seasons, including a win at Texas Motor Speedway in October 2021.
  • ATOP THE PIT BOX: Ben Beshore will oversee Nemechek’s No. 20 team in 2023. Beshore was most recently the crew chief for JGR’s No. 18 Cup Series effort the past two seasons. Under Beshore’s leadership over the past two seasons, the team posted three wins, 22 top-five finishes, 36 top-10s, and 941 laps led. Before that, Beshore scored eight wins, 22 top-five finishes, 37 top-10s, and 920 laps led in two seasons in the Xfinity Series. He led Harrison Burton and Kyle Busch to four wins each in those two years.
  • MOBIL 1: Nemechek’s No. 20 Toyota GR Supra will feature Mobil 1 as the primary sponsor this weekend in Daytona. Nemechek and Mobil 1 are no strangers to each other as they have partnered for four Truck Series wins over the past two seasons.
  • JGR AT DAYTONA: The Joe Gibbs Racing Xfinity Series team has earned four victories at Daytona International Speedway. In 114 combined Xfinity Series starts at the track, the organization has tallied 28 top-five finishes, 47 top-10s and 711 laps led. Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, Joey Logano and Tony Stewart have each driven JGR entries to victory lane at Daytona.
  • TUNE IN: Coverage of this weekend’s Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway is scheduled for Saturday, February 18, at 5 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1, MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

Talk about your outlook on the season joining JGR full-time in the Xfinity Series…

“I’m appreciative of the opportunity to be back in the Xfinity Series with an incredible organization like Joe Gibbs Racing. I know we can win after how we’ve performed in the few times I’ve raced with them the last two years, so I’m excited about this year and our chances at contending for wins and the championship.”
