Podcast: Daniel Hemric On Increasing Confidence at JGR, Pushing The Envelope

After having one of the quickest cars at Pocono Raceway, Daniel Hemric had not one but two pit road speeding penalties derail his chances of grabbing that elusive first NASCAR victory. He joins Davey this week to explain what happened on pit road, how his first year with Joe Gibbs Racing is going, why his confidence is higher than it’s ever been, how crew chief Dave Rogers has championed him and where he and Bubba Wallace will vacation next.

Zach Sturniolo joins Davey to break down the Pocono doubleheader, including Alex Bowman‘s late-race luck, Kyle Busch‘s fuel conservation, the doubleheader concept and more. Plus, they look ahead to Road America on July 4 weekend and give their picks.
