Hertz Joins Hendrick Motorsports, To Sponsor William Byron

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.

Elliott Earns 8th Career Runner-Up Finish, Johnson Rebounds For 2nd Straight Top 6

It was a great night for the Hendrick Motorsports camp. While they still aren’t there yet in terms of race wins, and Saturday night’s Toyota Owners 400 at the Richmond Raceway further showed that, it was still another great step in the right direction. Chase Elliott would bring his No. 9 Chevrolet home second on the .75-mile Virginia race track, for his best finish of the season. He also did so with Kenny Francis as his interim crew chief, as his normal crew chief Alan Gustafson is still serving his…

Byron Heads To Bristol With Tons of Momentum

I was very skeptical of Hendrick Motorsports and them bringing up William Byron already for the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. While I knew the kid had talent and had the potential to be a star one day in the sport, I was fearful that they were rushing him along too quickly. I didn’t want to see happen to him at Hendrick that happened to Joey Logano and Joe Gibbs Racing. Byron, had just one full season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series ranks. He then had…

Why I’m a Little Skeptical On Hendrick Motorsports This Weekend in Fontana

Statistically, the Auto Club Speedway has been kind to Hendrick Motorsports over the years. While Alex Bowman hasn’t raced on the 2-mile California track before for Hendrick, he was very good at its sister track in Michigan during the 2016 season in the race that he filled in for Dale Earnhardt Jr. William Byron is a rookie and coming off of a momentum changing race last weekend in Phoenix, a race that he led his first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series laps in and finished 12th. Chase Elliott and…

Bowman Keeps It Conservative In 1st Duel, Other 2 Teammates Not as Lucky

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – For the last four years now, Hendrick Motorsports has won at least one Can Am Duel at the Daytona International Speedway during Speedweeks. They swept the twin 60 lap races in 2015, then saw Dale Earnhardt Jr. win the first duel in 2016. Last year, Chase Elliott won the first duel himself. This year, it was Elliott again, this time winning the second duel. That’s basically a three race win streak though in the opening duel in the last three years right? For the 2018 edition, they…

Top Rides Filled By Young Talent In NASCAR For 2018

The 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season is hurrying upon us. We’re just a mere four weeks away from the season opening Daytona 500. One thing that occurred to me lately is that we have just six drivers in the entire field that has ever won a Cup championship. In fact, just one of those six have won multiple titles (Jimmie Johnson 7). Do we see another new champion in 2018? The odds are good for that and that’s because of this new found youth movement in NASCAR. Just…

After Friday’s Final 2 XFINITY Series Practices, It Looks Like The 2017 Champion May Not Have To Win Saturday’s Race

Homestead, Fla – Out of the three NASCAR divisions crowning their season champion this weekend at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, the only series that I could see a champion be crowned by not actually win the race was in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series should see the race winner on Friday night be either one of Matt Crafton, Johnny Sauter, Christopher Bell or Austin Cindric. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season finale on Sunday should see one of their Championship 4 drivers win too. After all,…
