CONCORD, N.C. -- Hendrick Motorsports teams will compete at "home" one last time this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

With 18 wins at the Concord, North Carolina, track, Charlotte is tied with Dover International Speedway for the organization's second-most victories at a track.

The organization also boasts 58 top-five finishes, 92 top-10s, 17 poles and 4,739 laps led.

However, before strapping in for the Bank of America 500, let's take a look back at three very memorable fall races at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Oct. 8, 1989: Ken Schrader contributed one Charlotte win to the organization's total of 18. He rolled off the grid in second and led Laps 4-8 before losing the lead, although he regained it for five laps in the middle stage of the event. He went on to lead a total of 40 laps before claiming his solitary Charlotte victory.


Oct. 11, 1999: With five wins at the track, Jeff Gordon is no stranger to Charlotte Motor Speedway. His first win at the 1.5-mile track came in 1994 with his last occurring in 2007. His fourth win happened eight years prior in 1999. Gordon took the green flag in 22nd and spent the majority of the race working his way to the front. He took the lead for the first time on Lap 205 and led a total of 16 laps before crossing the finish line in first.


Oct. 17, 2009: After laying down a one-lap time of 28.070-seconds at a speed of 192.376, Jimmie Johnson landed himself on the pole for the start of the 500-mile race. Johnson held the lead for 51 laps in the beginning stages of the race but lost the lead for the majority of the middle portion. He regained the lead just before Lap 300 and led another 41 laps before claiming the win, his sixth at the track.
