Daniel Hemric will run the No. 10 Chevrolet and bid for the NASCAR Xfinity Series owner’s championship, Kaulig Racing announced Wednesday.
Hemric will move out of the No. 11 car for the final eight Xfinity Series races, beginning at Kansas Speedway. The No. 11 team sits 13th in the standings, -26 to a playoff spot.
Meanwhile, the No. 10 team is mathematically locked into the owner playoffs this season.
Daniel Hemric is already locked into the driver playoffs. He will bid for his second Xfinity Series championship in the No. 10 car.
Team owners heavily value the owner playoffs. Their season prize money is heavily contingent on how a team does in those playoffs.
After Bubba Wallace failed to qualify himself and the No. 23 team into the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs, Wallace finished the year in the No. 45.
The No. 45 team qualified for the owner playoffs after Kurt Busch won at Kansas in May.
