CONCORD, N.C. – Every Thursday, we're going straight to the experts all across the Hendrick Motorsports campus to get your questions answered.

From drivers and crew chiefs to engineers, mechanics, pit crew athletes and more, every department is chipping in to answer fan questions sent our way on social media using the hashtag #WhyDoYouDoThat, with a new video posted each week.

This week, brake specialist Rich Gutierrez discussed the challenges Watkins Glen International presents for drivers, specifically avoiding "wheel hop" at the 2.45-mile road course.

Since the last time we checked in on the series, we've also gotten questions answered by Alex Bowman, director of human performance Andy Papathanassiou, production dyno operator Jared Morris, lead tire specialist Lisa Smokstad and many more.

Check out some of the other recent episodes below, and you can watch them all on "Why Do You Do That?" playlist on YouTube.
