– Nemechek and the No. 23 team will utilize chassis no. 220. This chassis was raced once in the 2018 season by Chase Elliott at Bristol Motor Speedway (start: 15th/finish: 8th) and twice during the 2019 season by Nemechek at Texas Motor Speedway (start: 8th/finish: 9th) and at Michigan International Speedway (start: 8th/finish: 8th).

– Nemechek will be making his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) debut in the Front Row Motorsports No. 36 entry this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. Nemechek will pilot the No. 36 for the remaining three races of the season due to Matt Tifft suffering from medical issues.


“I am excited to go to Texas for the second time with this GMS Racing group. We had a solid showing there in the spring and I hope we can follow that up this weekend with another strong run. With me running double-duty in both Cup and Xfinity, my weekend will be busy for sure. The more seat time the better is how I look at it though. We have ROMCO on the car this weekend over on the Xfinity side and I am always excited to represent their company again at their hometown track. They have been a long time supporter of my Dad and I’s career so winning with their colors on the car and at Texas would be really special.”
