The Last Time: Bristol Motor Speedway
By Gray Caldwell
CONCORD, N.C.— A little more than five months ago, Bristol Motor Speedway provided a Hendrick Motorsports milestone.
The Tennessee racetrack played host to top-10 performances by Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne, which gave Hendrick Motorsports 1,500 top-10 finishes.
Now, that number is up to 1,542.
The March race marked Gordon's fourth consecutive top-10 finish, while Kahne took home his second top-10 in a row. They finished seventh and eighth, respectively.
Next up were teammates Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 19th and 24th. Johnson's No. 48 Chevrolet SS suffered a blown tire early in the race, while Earnhardt's No. 88 Chevrolet SS encountered a late-race mechanical issue.
Overall, Hendrick Motorsports has 10 wins, 48 top-five finishes and 89 top-10s at Bristol Motor Speedway in addition to 11 poles at the track.
