CONCORD, N.C. -- When Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick was elected into the Hall of Fame as a member of its 2017 class, he made sure to credit everyone who has helped him along the way.

That included all of his drivers.

And when it comes to current drivers Kasey Kahne, Chase Elliott, Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr., it seems they want to make sure to point the credit right back toward Hendrick.

In the video above, hear from the four teammates on what Hendrick has meant to them and their careers -- and the sport as a whole.

"The experience with Mr. H -- I watched it from afar and dreamed of driving for him," Jimmie Johnson said. "Then when this all came together -- it's mind-blowing that I've had this opportunity. But the view from afar is very close to what the experience has been. He's an awesome guy."

Check out their full sentiments above.
