Nemechek – who just last week announced his departure from Front Row Motorsports after his rookie season in the NASCAR Cup Series — has claimed six prior victories in the series, driving for his family-owned team NEMCO Motorsports.
“Kyle and Samantha with the support of Toyota have built an organization that has won races and championships on a consistent basis and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to carry on the winning tradition by getting back to victory lane in the Camping World Truck Series next year,” Nemechek said. “I can’t thank the partners that have supported my career through the years enough for their continued support and I’m looking forward to building relationships with new partners this year. Bring on 2021 — Let’s Go Places!”
Additionally, the North Carolina-native has run one full-time season in both the NASCAR Xfinity Series – driving for GMS Racing — and the NASCAR Cup Series – driving for Front Row Motorsports.
“I began my XFINITY Series career with NEMCO and I’ve had a long-running relationship with Joe and the Nemechek family, so it’s cool to see things come full circle with being able to sign John Hunter to race at KBM,” Busch said. “John Hunter is a proven winner in the Camping World Truck Series, as well as the Xfinity Series, and someone who we are confident will be able to put the No. 4 Tundra up front on a consistent basis and compete for victories each and every race. Despite only being 23 years old, he has a lot of experience across all three series and with next year’s Truck Series schedule including a lot of events where it’s just show up and race, having an experienced driver in one of our full-time Tundras is going to be beneficial to our whole organization.”
Additional details including sponsorship and the crew chief for Nemechek’s No. 4, along with his teammates for 2021 will be announced at a later date.
