CONCORD N.C. – Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, NBC Sports officially celebrated its pit crew all-star team for the 2018 season.
Two Hendrick Motorsports teammates made the list of 10.
Both No. 9 team jackman TJ Semke and No. 48 team fueler Brandon Harder were chosen as athletes who made a significant difference in their driver’s success.
Semke was grateful to be named to the all-star team and looks back to Chase Elliott's win at Kansas Speedway, his home track, as one of the most memorable moments of the season.
"It was a dream come true," he said. "It’s awesome to win anywhere, but to win at your home track, it’s really special.”
Harder reflected on working with seven-time time Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus over the years and noted his close relationship with the two of them as one of the things he's most thankful for.
“Just the relationships," Harder said. "I feel we share a good relationship between us three and it’s something that I value and always will.”
