Off the Wall With: John Hunter Nemechek

Welcome to Off the Wall With…, where we ask your favorite drivers five questions that are…well, off the wall! We’ll check in with a different driver each week to get a peek into life outside the race car. This week, we’ve got rising Truck Series star John Hunter Nemechek.

What’s fun besides racing?

John Hunter Nemechek: Wake surfing. Probably wake surfing out on the lake or working out.

What’s the top item on your bucket list?

Nemechek: Winning a Sprint Cup championship.

Your go-to on movie night is:

Nemechek: American Sniper.

What’s one item that’s always in your grocery bag?

Nemechek: Fruit.

Most memorable fan interaction?

Nemechek: There are so many. It has to be all of the young fans. The younger generation coming to the track. You take a picture with them or sign an autograph. It makes their day and makes them smile. To do anything like that to bring the younger generation into the sport is special.
