CONCORD, N.C. – In 2014, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon teamed up to earn Hendrick Motorsports a season sweep at Michigan International Speedway.

In the first event of 2014 in June at the two-mile, D-shaped track, Johnson led the way for the organization.

After starting the day in seventh, the driver had his first lead of the day by Lap 75 of the 200-lap event, leading a total of 39 laps. He took his fourth and final lead of the event on Lap 191 and held it for the remaining 10 circuits to capture the checkered flag.

When the Cup Series returned to Michigan two months later, it was Gordon's turn to celebrate in Victory Lane. 

The 2019 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee started the race on the pole, but he was shuffled out of the lead on the opening lap.

By Lap 56, Gordon was back in front, and he went on to lead 68 laps, including the final 17, en route to Victory Lane to complete a Hendrick Motorsports sweep of the track.

The organization has not won there since the 2014 sweep, but the four Hendrick Motorsports teammates will carry lots of momentum to the Michigan track this weekend after the organization captured its 250th win last weekend at Watkins Glen.

In 230 starts at Michigan International, Hendrick Motorsports has earned eight wins, 52 top-five finishes, 98 top-10s and 2,478 laps led.
