Nemechek started the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event in the 12th- position and methodically progressed to the sixth-position by Lap 40.

In the Rearview Mirror: Chicagoland Speedway … John Hunter Nemechek, driver of the No. 8 #TeamTurtle / #TeamFoot Chevrolet Silverado for NEMCO Motorsports, finished in the 14th- position in the American Ethanol e15 225 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at the Chicagoland (Ill.)
