CONCORD, N.C. -- Hendrick Motorsports has a storied history at Michigan International Speedway. The organization holds the track records for NASCAR Cup Series pole positions, runner-up finishes, top-10s and laps led. 

The team has eight wins there, tied for fourth all-time, and its 52 top-five results rank second.

The four Hendrick Motorsports drivers will have a chance to add to that history this weekend for the doubleheader at the track.

Check out more key numbers and stats as Hendrick Motorsports prepares for both races at Michigan. 

  • The organization has exclusively used Chevrolets since its inception in 1984 and has accounted for 258 points-paying NASCAR Cup Series wins and a record 12 championships using the Detroit-based manufacturer. That's 49% of Chevrolet's wins in a 36-year span and 33% of Chevy’s 789 all-time wins in NASCAR’s top series.
  • Hendrick Motorsports’ eight Cup Series wins at Michigan have come via five different drivers, led by Jeff Gordon’s three and Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s two. Jimmie Johnson, Mark Martin and Ricky Rudd have each scored one MIS victory for the organization.
  • This weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series doubleheader at Michigan falls on a pair of winning dates for Hendrick Motorsports. On Aug. 8, 2004, Gordon and the No. 24 team won the fourth of his five career races at Indianapolis after leading a Brickyard 400-record 124 laps in the first-ever Cup race to end in overtime. Gordon went to victory lane at Watkins Glen International on Aug. 9, 1998, which was his seventh of 13 wins in a season that ended with the driver’s third of four championships.
  • Chase Elliott currently holds the best average finish (7.63) of all drivers with more than two starts at Michigan. He has finished inside the top 10 in seven of his eight career NASCAR Cup Series starts at the 2-mile oval – no other driver has more top-10 results in the last eight races at the track. The Dawsonville, Georgia, native has also collected three top-five finishes at Michigan, all of which were runner-up results.
  • William Byron has four Cup Series starts at Michigan, with his best finish of eighth coming in August of 2019. He has eight top-15 finishes since the Martinsville race in June, which ranks him fourth overall among Cup Series drivers in that same span.
  • Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Johnson has led 700 laps at the 2-mile track located in the Irish Hills. However, he secured his first and only win at the track in June 2014 after multiple near victories.
  • Alex Bowman secured a pair of top-10 finishes at the track in 2019, with both of them being 10th-place results. It was his best two finishes at the track. This year, the No. 88 team has captured four stage wins, tied for the third-most among drivers.
