No. 20 Mobil 1 Toyota GR Supra News and Notes

  • NEMECHEK AT CHARLOTTE: John Hunter Nemechek has only made one NASCAR Xfinity Series start on the Charlotte Motor Speedway quad-oval layout. In that race back in May 2019, Nemechek started 14th and finished 12th while driving for GMS Racing. He finished 16th and 13th in a pair of NASCAR Cup Series starts at the 1.5-mile track in 2020. Additionally, Nemechek posted one win, two top-five finishes, and four top-10s in six career NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series starts at Charlotte.
  • CHARLOTTE VICTORY: Nemechek turned in a dominant performance in the Truck Series race at Charlotte in May 2021. That night, he started fourth and led a race-high 71 laps on the way to victory lane.
  • DARLINGTON RECAP: In the most recent Xfinity Series race at Darlington Raceway, Nemechek captured his first pole award of the season and led a race-high 57 laps. On the final lap, he was battling 2021 Cup Series champion Kyle Larson for the victory before the two drivers made contact that sent Nemechek spinning. Despite the misfortune, the No. 20 driver crossed the finish line fifth.
  • FRONT RUNNER: According to loop data provided by NASCAR, Nemechek leads the Xfinity Series in laps led, average running position, driver rating, fastest drivers early in a run, fastest laps run, fastest on restarts, and laps in the top 15.
  • MOBIL 1: Nemechek’s No. 20 Toyota GR Supra will feature Mobil 1 as the primary sponsor this weekend at Charlotte. Nemechek and Mobil 1 are no strangers to each other as they have partnered for four Truck Series wins over the past two seasons.
  • JGR AT CHARLOTTE: Joe Gibbs Racing owns 10 NASCAR Xfinity Series victories at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In 107 combined starts at the 1.5-mile track, the organization has posted 41 top-five finishes, 63 top-10s, six pole awards, and 1,961 laps led. Mike Bliss, Kyle Busch, Ty Gibbs, Denny Hamlin, and Joey Logano have all driven JGR entries to victory lane in Charlotte.

What are your thoughts about racing at Charlotte this weekend?

“Charlotte is always a fun weekend being our home track and being able to have friends and family come out. I’m really excited about the race. It has been a little strange only having one race so far this month, but we’ve been meeting, and in the sim trying to stay sharp and be ready for this stretch of races that we’re about to hit this summer. Hopefully we can get this stretch off to a good start on Saturday.”
