Hendrick Motorsports memorable starts
KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- As Hendrick Motorsports continues to pursue its 200th NASCAR Sprint Cup win, there is one milestone the organization will check off this weekend when its drivers line up at Kansas Speedway – its 3,000th start. Hendrick Motorsports enters Kansas with 2,999 starts and will leave the stage of its 199th Sprint Cup victory with 3,003, the most among any team in NASCAR.
Fans can watch the action live Sunday at 12:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
The string of entries dates back to Feb. 19, 1984, when Geoff Bodine lined up for the fledgling race team at Daytona (Fla.) International Superspeedway. Bodine finished eighth that day. Since then, Hendrick Motorsports has recorded 10 Cup championships and 199 victories during 28 seasons of racing. Here is a glimpse at some of those milestones and moments told through memorable starts.
