Hendrick Motorsports’ Winless Streak Extends To Full Season, But Sunday Showed Potential Growth

It’s now been one full year since Hendrick Motorsports last visited victory lane in a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race. Kasey Kahne last won for the storied organization in the 2017 Brickyard 400. That was July 23, 2017. Sunday’s Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 was July 22, 2018. So, on Monday, a date with no race, marks the one year mark since Kahne’s last win. That’s why Hendrick needed to send one of their four drivers to victory lane on Sunday to ensure that their longest winless streak since 1985…

If Neither Hendrick Car Wins On Sunday, Their Winless Streak Would Extend To 1 Year

Hendrick Motorsports is one win away from a historic feat. Their next trip to victory lane in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series would be the 250th overall. But, there’s one problem, they’ve been waiting on accomplishing that feat for over 12 months now. In fact, if one of their four drivers doesn’t win Sunday’s Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 (2 p.m. ET/NBCSN/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, then it would have been a full year since they last won a race in NASCAR’s premiere series. July 23,…

Bowman Leading Hendrick Charge As All 4 Drivers Sit On Or Near Playoff Bubble

I wrote earlier in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, before it even begun actually, that the 2018 year could be a trying one for Hendrick Motorsports. Gone is Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne. Three veterans of the sport. Left for this year was Jimmie Johnson, a seven time champion but one coming off of his worst statistical year of his career and three drivers with zero combined wins on the Cup level. One, has literally just two full seasons coming through the NASCAR ladder and…

Hendrick Cars To Start Up Front But Can They Finish There In Coke Zero Sugar 400

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – For the third time in the last four Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races at the Daytona International Speedway, Chase Elliott and whomever is driving the No. 88 Chevrolet with Hendrick Motorsports will share the front row. For the 2017 season, Chase Elliott earned the pole for the Daytona 500 and he was joined alongside by Dale Earnhardt Jr. For the July race, Earnhardt returned the favor and knocked Elliott of the pole.

Hendrick Motorsports Continues Daytona Qualifying Dominance, Elliott-Bowman To Start 1-2

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – A bum ankle can’t slow Chase Elliott down as he was the fastest driver at the Daytona International Speedway on Friday evening. The Hendrick Motorsports driver was a full mph faster than anyone else in the opening round of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series qualifying for Saturday’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 (7 p.m. ET/NBC/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Network). Then, in the money round, Elliott circled the high banked 2.5-mile track with a speed of 194.045 mph to earn his fourth career Cup Series pole. Three of which have…

Hendrick Steadily Improving, Need To Move From 10th to 15th Place Cars To Top 5 Next

The start of the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season started off frustrating for the entire Hendrick Motorsports camp. It took until the fourth race of the season for any of their four drivers to get a top five finish. Unfortunately though, that result was later taken away for an L-1 violation. Through the first seven races of the year, all four HMS drivers struggled. The top driver in terms of average finishing position was Alex Bowman with a 16.28 result. Chase Elliott was next best with a 16.5.…

Hendrick Motorsports Struggles In Coca-Cola 600 (6 p.m. ET/FOX/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) Qualifying

It wasn’t a very good Thursday at the track for the entire Hendrick Motorsports bunch. They struggled in the lone practice session of the day at the Charlotte Motor Speedway with Chase Elliott leading the way for the team with being sixth on the overall speed charts. William Byron was 11th while Alex Bowman and Jimmie Johnson were 21st and 22nd respectively. In qualifying later on in the day, none of the four make it to the final round of the Busch Pole Award session. In fact, they struggled even…

Last Saturday, William Byron said a crash at the Kansas Speedway hurt a lot. On Wednesday, he found a sponsor pertaining to that work. Sorry, for the bad play on words. The Hertz Corporation, one of the world’s largest vehicle rental companies, has joined 12-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports as a primary sponsor of leading rookie of the year contender William Byron and his iconic No. 24 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team beginning in 2018.

Hendrick Motorsports Inching Closer To Playoff Contention

The 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season hasn’t started off as well as Hendrick Motorsports would have liked it to. Through 11 races, they’ve yet to visit victory lane in NASCAR’s premiere series. In fact, its been 34 long races since they’ve last won a Cup Series race. As we head to Saturday night’s race at the Kansas Speedway, I still wouldn’t put them as a favorite either. But, what they’re doing, they’re just steadily getting better and better as the year has gone on. A month or so…
