MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Joe Nemechek will share a ride in the Truck Series this season with his 16-year-old son, John Hunter.

The No. 8 truck owned by SWM-NEMCO Racing will run the full season. John Hunter will only run at the 10 tracks where drivers under the age of 18 are allowed to compete.

Joe Nemechek will compete in the remaining 12 races, all at ovals larger than a mile and superspeedways.

NEMCO Motorsports was founded in 1990 to start Joe Nemechek's Busch Series program. John Hunter joined the team last season and ran two races, with a best finish of 16th at Martinsville.

Joe Nemechek has more than 1,000 starts in NASCAR's three national series. He's got only seven starts in the Truck Series, and Nemechek's not raced a truck since 2006.
