When it comes to pit stops, our crews have to be prepared for more than just changing tires, making adjustments and adding fuel to Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet or Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s No. 88 AMP Energy/National Guard Chevrolet on race day. If one of our teams is involved in an incident, our over-the-wall teams have to be ready to step up and handle the repairs on pit road.
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.
