In one of the most dramatic finishes in the NASCAR Camping World Series last year, John Hunter Nemechek bumped, banged, crashed into Cole Custer in the final turn at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park pinning him against the crash wall, and the two barreled each other off the asphalt as they crossed the finish line! Replay showed that Nemechek barely beat Custer to the stripe for the victory. It was a race for the ages, and the flying tackle that Custer through on Nemechek was NFL quality!
Nemechek will try to defend his win in Sunday’s Chevrolet Silverado 250 at the 10-turn road course – the only track on the schedule where drivers go left and right.
In addition to his win, the No. 8 Chevrolet driver has showings of ninth (2015) and 25th (2014) at CTMP.
On the season, Nemechek boasts two wins, seven top fives and 11 playoff points in 14 starts. He has two more races to add playoff points before the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series postseason begins at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sept. 23.
“Going to a track we’ve won at before definitely gives us a boost of confidence,” Nemechek said. “I feel like going to Canadian Tire is definitely going to be a momentum builder as we inch closer to the playoffs.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
