In the Rearview Mirror: Dover International Speedway

John Hunter Nemechek Quote on the track

Our NEMCO Motorsports team is looking forward to going and competing at the Charlotte Motor Speedway for the first time with me behind-the-wheel. Charlotte (Motor Speedway) is close, so there will be many family members and friends in attendance.

We are trying to get our momentum back on track going after a few rough weeks. Charlotte Motor Speedway is a mile and a half track, and with two victories on tracks of similar size, we have a little more confidence in securing a strong result.
