CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Sept. 30, 2002)—The two NASCAR Busch Series teams of Hendrick Motorsports each had disappointing outings in Saturday’s Mr. Goodcents 300 at Kansas Speedway.
Three-time NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion Jack Sprague started the race in 16th, finishing 20th in the No. 24 NetZero Chevrolet after getting together with the No. 92 of Todd Bodine and hitting the retaining wall early in the event.
Sprague, currently fourth in Busch Series championship points, lost ground on leader Greg Biffle, who finished fourth at Kansas.
Driving the No. 5 GMAC Chevy, Ricky Hendrick started 27th and finished 38th in the 43-car field following an early race accident. The Busch Series rookie completed 56 of 200 possible laps and earned 49 championship points.
Hendrick is currently 26th in the driver standings after starting 22 of 28 events in 2002.
The Busch Series will next visit Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C., for the Little Trees 300 on Oct. 12 at 1 p.m. ET. Live flag-to-flag coverage of the event will begin at 12:15 p.m. ET on MRN Radio, with TNT’s broadcast scheduled for 1 p.m. ET.
