Will Hendrick Get Milestone Win This Weekend?
Lately, every weekend there seems to be two big questions for NASCAR fans. Both are focused in the direction of Hendrick Motorsports.
The first question is: Will Junior win this weekend? And the second is: Is this the weekend that Hendrick Motorsports will get its 200th win?
Both are very possible this weekend as NASCAR race teams head to Kansas Speedway. Dale Earnhardt, Jr has five top-10 finishes at the track and Hendrick has more wins there than any other team.
Teammates Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson have always been strong at Kansas. Jeff Gordon won the first two times that NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series went there. Jimmie Johnson won from the pole in 2008 and also won the fall race there last year. He was fastest in Friday’s “happy hour” practice.
Johnson will start Sunday’s race from 15th, Gordon will roll-off 20th, Dale Jr. goes from 7th and teammate Kasey Kahne qualified 9th. AJ Allmendinger will lead them all to the green flag as he starts on the pole. Here’s the complete race lineup.
Everyone agrees that a 200th win for the Hendrick team will eventually happen. But will it come sooner or later? Maybe this weekend.
