Original post: NEMCO Motorsports, owned by NASCAR veteran Joe Nemechek, isn’t planning on running the 2021 Truck Series season, Jayski’s Dustin Albino reports. The team’s most recent success in the Truck Series came in 2017 when John Hunter Nemechek finished eighth in the driver point standings after collecting three wins.
The younger Nemechek made his series debut with NEMCO in 2013. Since, he’s collected six wins for the team. After stints in the XFINITY and Cup Series, John Hunter returns to the Truck Series this season, competing full-time in the #4 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports.
NEMCO, though primarily focused on XFINITY competition over the years, has been a NASCAR staple since 1989.
Per a @NEMCOMotorsport spokesperson, the team isn't planning on entering the @NASCAR_Trucks season opener at Daytona, nor run at all in 2021.
Should the team end up running select races because truck count is down, it would be in a Chevrolet. #NASCAR
