CONCORD, N.C. -- One mile away from Hendrick Motorsports' headquarters is the impressive Charlotte Motor Speedway, putting the track in the organization's backyard.
Hendrick Motorsports leads all racing teams with 11 wins at the 600-mile event held on Memorial Day weekend. Richard Childress Racing is the next-closest team with six victories.
With NASCAR preparing to run this Sunday at the North Carolina track, check out more key numbers, stats and figures on Hendrick Motorsports’ history at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
- Car owner Rick Hendrick has 28 major NASCAR Cup Series wins at the Charlotte Motor Speedway facility. His teams have won 19 points-paying races on the 1.5-mile oval and one on the track’s road course known as the ROVAL. Hendrick Motorsports has also posted a record eight NASCAR All-Star Race wins at Charlotte.
- In Hendrick Motorsports' 11 wins for the Charlotte 600, five different drivers have earned Charlotte 600 wins for the organization: Jimmie Johnson (4), Jeff Gordon (3), Darrell Waltrip (2), Kasey Kahne and Casey Mears.
- No team has ever produced eight different winners at any racetrack, but a Charlotte victory by Chase Elliott, William Byron or Alex Bowman would alter the record book. Hendrick Motorsports has won Cup Series races with seven drivers at three tracks: the Charlotte oval, Pocono Raceway and Talladega Superspeedway. Wood Brothers Racing has gone to Victory Lane with seven different drivers at Daytona International Speedway.
- A win at Charlotte Motor Speedway would be the 60th for Hendrick Motorsports on a 1.5-mile racetrack in the NASCAR Cup Series. The team’s 59 points-paying wins are an all-time record, nine ahead of second-place Joe Gibbs Racing, 18 ahead of third-place Roush Fenway Racing and 31 ahead of fourth-place Team Penske. Hendrick Motorsports has sent 11 different drivers to victory lane at 1.5-mile venues.
- Johnson is king of the Queen City. A four-time Charlotte 600 winner, he has eight total wins at the track and has four All-Star wins at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He has led for 1,030 laps in the annual race, which is the most of active drivers and third most of all time.
- On May 24, 1998, Gordon started from the pole position and led 53 laps en route to his third career win in the Charlotte 600. His No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team dominated the 1998 season by winning 13 points races and the third of the driver’s four career NASCAR Cup Series championships.
