John Hunter Nemechek, driver of the No. 8 MeetBall Chevrolet Silverado for NEMCO Motorsports, finished 23rd on June 19, 2015 in the American Ethanol 200 presented by Enogen NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at the Iowa Speedway. Nemechek, son of “Front Row Joe” Nemechek, started the 200-lap event on the front row in a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career-best qualifying effort of second. Nemechek maintained a top five running position during most of the event. Nemechek was working through lapped traffic in eighth-position on Lap 157, and unaware of another competitor to his outside, Nemechek moved up the track, causing contact between the two, resulting in the race’s final yellow flag. Suffering severe damage from the incident, the No. 8 NEMCO Motorsports team went to the garage unable to make repairs to the Chevrolet.

John Hunter Nemechek Quote on the track

Our NEMCO Motorsports team is confident on our return to the Iowa Speedway. We had a great run at the track last year by running upfront. Our team was in contention for the win, but the race didn’t end like we wanted it to.

It is a fun short track, and races like a 1.5-mile track. Every lap you have to be on your ‘A game.’ Iowa Speedway is defiantly a driver’s race track.
