A remarkable moment in Nemechek’s career occurred in early November 2019 at ISM Raceway when he and his father, Joe Nemechek, achieved motorsports history by becoming the first father-son duo to race in all three main NASCAR series in a single weekend.

He rounded off the 2019 season on a high note, finishing seventh in points after a sixth-place finish at Homestead.
