SWM-NEMCO Motorsports Steps Up Schedule for 16-Year-Old Driver
After turning heads in the first two races of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career in 2013, 16-year-old John Hunter Nemechek is ready to compete at the front of the field with a more aggressive schedule in 2014.
Nemechek will pilot the No. 8 Toyota Tundra in 10 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events with SWM-NEMCO Motorsports. The 10-race slate consists of all the tracks the second-generation driver can compete on under NASCAR’s age requirements, but the mix of short tracks and one-mile ovals coupled with a road course and a dirt track makes for an exciting opportunity for Nemechek to gain more NCWTS experience.
“Our goals for the year are to finish top 10 in each race,” said Nemechek. “I know it’s going to be tough racing against all the veterans that we’ll compete with each race, but I think we’ll have the team to do it. It’s all about getting as much experience as I can while continuing to move up into the bigger cars.”
