Joe Nemechek to honor late brother at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Said Joe Nemechek: "Homestead has always been a special place and to win this weekend would mean the world to me and my family. We've had so much success there so it's been a place of joy but also a place of heartbreak having lost my brother, John, there. I'm looking forward to running a truck at Homestead again and especially a truck with my brother's number (No. 8) on it. We have three Homestead wins in the Nationwide Series but after running this season with my son, winning in this truck would be the ultimate way to honor John."
