NASCAR veteran Joe Nemechek is enjoying his return to the elite series of stock car racing.
Nemechek has competed in two races this season for Premium Motorsports, reuniting with team owner Jay Robinson whom Nemechek drove 14 races for in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2014.
Nemechek said team owner Jay Robinson called him asking if he wanted to drive the car.
The deal was put together quickly, “last minute,” Nemechek said, just before the Darlington race.
“There’s a couple more races on the schedule they want me to go to, so we’re just kind of doing it one-by-one,” Nemechek said.
Nemechek had the following to say about his thoughts on running a full schedule in NASCAR’s premier series again, something he has not done since 2011.
“Who knows,” Nemechek said. “I know they’re talking about, we just have to see. It’s all about making it make sense.
