CONCORD, N.C. – With a NASCAR Cup Series-leading 10 wins at ISM Raceway, Hendrick Motorsports has experienced plenty of historic moments at the Avondale, Arizona, venue.
In 2005, Kyle Busch became the youngest driver ever to win at the track in the Cup Series. In 2009, Mark Martin became the oldest driver ever to win at the track in the Cup Series. In between, Jeff Gordon tied Dale Earnhardt with 76 career Cup wins thanks to a 2007 victory at the track.
One of the organization’s biggest wins at ISM Raceway came on Nov. 15, 2009.
Starting third, Jimmie Johnson found the race lead for the first time on Lap 53. He would go on to lead a race-high 238 laps of the 312-lap event en route to Victory Lane.
It was Johnson’s fourth win at ISM Raceway, seventh race win of that season and the sixth straight win at the one-mile track for Hendrick Motorsports.
The six consecutive wins marked the third longest streak of winning at one track in Cup Series history.
The streak began in the spring 2007 race, won by Gordon. Martin won the spring 2009 race, and the other four victories in the six-win streak were earned by Johnson.
The week following the fall 2009 ISM Raceway win, Johnson captured his fourth straight Cup Series championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
The organization will look to create another memorable moment this Sunday at ISM Raceway.
