Xfinity Series driver and Ganassi Racing developmental driver John Hunter Nemechek has just cleared his schedule for this upcoming Sunday “…just in case”

“Well, as a driver, I need to be ready at any time”, Nemechek said. “That’s why at around 9:30pm (ET) tonight, I made sure I didn’t have anything going on this Sunday. I mean, you never know when you’re going to have to run a race, and that’s job #1 for me.”
Nemechek said that, if something were to happen that would cause him to race on Sunday in the upcoming Cup race, he would be sure to be an asset to the Ganassi Racing team.
“I’m all about learning, but more so, I’m here to help”, Nemechek said after booking a flight from the Charlotte area to central Alabama. “I mean, when I’m out there, its all about helping my teammate. I’m never going to argue with anyone on my team—and I’m certainly never going to confuse them with another driver, like, oh, I dunno, Kurt Busch for instance.”
Nemechek refused to say what the cause was for the recent change of plans, but seemed to intimate that he was ready if his team should need him.
“I’m ready, willing, and able, if the need should arise”, Nemechek said. “You know what Douglass Adams said: ‘Don’t Panic’. And he also pointed out what the answer to life, the universe, and everything is too, y’know.”
