When NASCAR changed the schedule, there were some mixed emotions about having a weekend off so early in the year, but it’s a good thing if you ask me. Just getting a minute to catch your breath after our first three races—Daytona and crisscrossing the country a couple times—it’s nice to know you can spend a little more time on day-to-day preparations.
With the Daytona 500 fast approaching, the next couple of weeks are going to be very exciting at Hendrick Motorsports. Don’t expect the lights in the Nos. 48/88 shop to shut off any time soon because we’re working around the clock on all the fine details.
