GAFFNEY, S.C. (November 20, 2017) – Joe Nemechek, making a return to the NASCAR Xfinity Series with team JD Motorsports with Gary Keller, finished 27thin the season-ending Ford EcoBoost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Nemechek, driving the No. 01 Fleetwing Chevrolet Camaro, had a very strong start to Saturday’s race running as high as 10th place and only falling into the low 20s after the half-way point.

“It felt great to be back behind the wheel of a NASCAR Xfinity Series racecar,” Nemechek said. “I’m very thankful to my friend Johnny Davis and the entire No. 01 team for giving me a great car to go out and race with. I’ve also got to say a huge thanks to my sponsors Fleetwing Corporation, TBC Contractors, and KSDT and Company. Each of these companies was also a big part of making this race a reality.”

The 2018 NASCAR Xfinity Series season will take the green flag on February 17th at Daytona International Speedway for the PowerShares QQQ 300.
