“I can’t wait to get to Atlanta with OnDeck coming onboard our No. 8 Chevrolet,” said Daniel Hemric. “It’s awesome to see a new company like OnDeck come into the world of NASCAR and I couldn’t be happier that they have allowed me to be the one that gets to represent them at both Atlanta and later this year in Chicago with our JR Motorsports Camaro. It’s great to see them using a platform like NASCAR to help get their messaging across. Hopefully they’ll have a great time and we can come away with a couple of victories for them.”
