A championship celebration was happening along the frontstretch at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but another milestone was being celebrated at the entrance to pit road.
After he climbed from his No. 96 Toyota at the conclusion of his cool-down lap in the Ford EcoBoost 400, Drew Herring chatted with members of his team after completing his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race.
Homestead-Miami was Herring’s first time in a racecar during a race weekend in over a year – the most previous start was at the ARCA Menard’s Series finale at Kansas Speedway in October 2018.
Before that, Herring’s last NASCAR-sanctioned race was at ISM Raceway in Avondale, Arizona almost three years ago.
Herring told The Racing Experts he has nothing lined up for his 2020 racing plans at this time.
The deal at Homestead-Miami was a one-race deal, but the 32-year-old is open to "anything… with a steering wheel and four tires."
