Rick Hendrick thinks that his team is having one of the best moments in its entire history.
Hendrick Motorsports seems to be in unbelievable form – they have had a 1-2-3-4 finish at Dover as well as a 1-2 triumph at COTA. More than that, they are now tied with Petty Enterprises for most NASCAR Cup Series victories. The legendary team owner Hendrick thinks that this is one of the best periods for the organization.
“I do [think so]. We’ve won 17 races in a year, total dominance by a couple of cars I think with Jeff Gordon. But to have all four cars running, that 1-2-3-4 was an amazing feat for our company. Then to come back and run first and second today,” he told ASN Motorsports.
Hendrick also admits that having multiple cars in the team is always a challenge, but they have suceeded in proving the naysayers wrong.
“Yeah, I think on par all cars capable of winning, it’s hard to do. It’s really hard to do because I’ve been at this for a long, long time. I’ve done multiple cars for a lot of years,” he commented.
“I was told when I went to two cars I’d never win a championship running two cars. When you have four and you try to tell every sponsor you got the same stuff as the other guy when they’re all clicking, it makes life a lot easier and we gain a lot of momentum. In the engine, with the engine shop, the chassis shop, everybody gets that big momentum, that Big Mo attitude. The drivers do, crew chiefs do,” he added.
In the end, Hendrick believes that they will enjoy the moment for as long as possible.
“We’ll enjoy it while we can. This is a tough sport to stay there, so… But, yeah, it’s the best we’ve seen, best I remember by far.”
