Just three years ago, John Hunter and dad Joe Nemechek finished fourth and fifth, respectively in the season opener at Daytona. But this weekend was much different for the father/son duo out of NEMCO Motorsports. The pair both failed to make the field on speed. NEMCO’s schedule this season isn’t set in stone just yet, but the team will definitely be skipping the series’ trek to Las Vegas Motor Speedway next weekend.
Gus Dean made his first start behind the wheel of the No. 56 Chevrolet for Hill Motorsports and he managed to stay out of trouble throughout the race until he was caught up in the melee with just two laps remaining. Dean’s schedule following Daytona isn’t confirmed.
“It’s looking like we’re probably going to be able to do Talladega, and I think Charlotte will be the one we work on after that.”
