Fantasy NASCAR: NEMCO Motorsports

by Bryce McRae on February 6, 2009 @ 00:00:00 PDT


No. 87 Toyota - no sponsor

Owner: Joe Nemechek
Driver: Joe Nemechek
Crew chief: Philippe Lopez
Sprint Cup debut: 1993
Age: 45
Career Sprint Cup wins: 4
2008 Sprint Cup rank: 37

2009 fantasy outlook: Nemechek will attempt to run a full Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series (in the No. 87 Chevrolet) - he hasn't run a complete slate on either circuit in two years. His average finish has declined in every year since 2005, one year after his last win in the Cup. Nemechek was more "No Show" than "Front Row" last year with an average start of 31.2, though he carried his first pole since 2005. Without sponsorship and no promise of a full season, Nemechek should remain a free agent during NASCAR drafts.
