Another Nemechek on the Horizon

When a race car driver can get Kyle Busch's attention -- particularly in a positive way -- he's really done something. When it's a 14-year-old getting high props, it elevates the respect quotient even higher.

That was the case for John Hunter Nemechek last weekend as the son of Sprint Cup and Nationwide series owner/driver Joe Nemechek -- in only his second start in a super late model car -- held off eventual Speedfest winner Busch for more than 60 laps at Watermelon Capital Speedway in Cordele, Ga.

Busch told young Nemechek "ur day isn't too far away #staysmoothe" on his Twitter feed shortly after the race. Joe Nemechek, who works with his son on his car as much as his schedule allows, has been with John Hunter for his first two SLM events -- the first of which came at New Smyrna Speedway in Samsula, Fla., about a half-hour south of Daytona International Speedway, earlier this year.

At January's Daytona Sprint Cup test, the elder Nemechek smiled and said he enjoyed working with his son's late model cars because teams were still able to twist, tweak and tune them, unlike current Sprint Cup cars, which NASCAR's rules package keep in a pretty tight box "that you can't do anything with," the ever-creative Nemechek said.

The teenage Nemechek plans to race the 10-night SLM schedule during February's World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna and his father plans to be there as much as his busy DIS schedule -- where he'll compete in both Cup and Nationwide cars -- allows.

Joe doesnt need to tweak his cars any more. They're already fast enough to start and park.
