The three drivers representing Hendrick Motorsports in the postseason -- Chase Elliott, Jimmie Johnson and Alex Bowman -- made the rounds from network television, radio, print media and track representatives to help gear up for the 10-week playoff stretch.

The drivers also took to the stage for a NASCAR Playoffs Live event, aired on, before strapping into their cars to lay some rubber down on the Burnout Blvd.
