Legacy Motor Club signs Nemechek as Gragson's NASCAR Cup replacement for 2024
John Hunter Nemechek, a 26-year-old driver, has had a varied racing career. After racing full-time in the Cup Series in 2020, he transitioned to the NASCAR ladder system, winning races and finishing high in the standings. Currently, he is competing for the Xfinity championship in a Toyota Supra. In 2024, Nemechek will join the Legacy Motor Club team, co-owned by Jimmie Johnson, as they switch from Chevrolet to Toyota. Nemechek is excited about this opportunity and feels relieved to announce his plans early. This move comes after the departure of rookie driver Gragson from Legacy M.C. due to a controversial social media post. Denny Hamlin also revealed his plans for 2024, signing a multi-year contract extension at Joe Gibbs Racing.
