Chatting with Daniel Hemric

Daniel Hemric is excited! As a native of Kannapolis, North Carolina, he grew up going to events down the street at Charlotte Motor Speedway. This weekend, he'll be making his first start in one of NASCAR's Crown Jewel races, the Coca-Cola 600. How cool must that feel to go from the stands to the driver seat at Charlotte???

Daniel, who drives the #8 car for Richard Childress Racing, is not only competing for his first series win this weekend but he's competing for Rookie of the Year in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series this year. We certainly wish him all the best! And by the way, when he gets his first win and every win thereafter, watch for him to do a back flip. It's his thing...

Daniel was nice enough to take the time to call this afternoon to chat and here is that chat in it's entirety. For a link to buy tickets to Sunday's Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, click here. If you can't be there, be sure to watch it Sunday on Fox!
