CONCORD, N.C. – The heat of the summer is in full swing and it is vital for every Hendrick Motorsports pit crew athlete to be in peak physical condition.
In order to prepare for high temperatures and humidity at the racetrack, the pit crews at Hendrick Motorsports participate in 11 weeks of heat training.
Mark Morrison, strength and conditioning coach at Hendrick Motorsports, commented on the championship mindset that every team member has while tackling the grueling training.
“We are very proud of all of our teams,” Morrison said. “It was 17 stations and very demanding and they blew through it like it was nothing.”
