The 27-year-old was named the next driver of the RCR No. 31 Chevrolet next season, and we couldn't be happier for him. Death Wish has sponsored NASCAR Drivers Ty Dillon and Hemric in the past. 

"I’m excited to announce that I’m a part of it and going to continue to be a part of it and doing it at the top series of what you work your whole life to get to," Hemric said in an interview.

"And going through this process everybody that has followed my career throughout the summer shootout here at Charlotte Motor Speedway to Late Models to Modifieds to Super Late Models and whatever it was, trying to make the most out of whatever those situations were and I think being in this spot today was a testament to each one of those folks that gave me a shot or gave me a ride whenever there wasn’t any rides to be given or to be had."

 Good luck, Daniel!
