OK, I am a fan of Hendrick Motorsports. I think what Rick Hendrick has built is incredible. I also think Mr. H will see HMS surpass, by a large margin, 300 wins.
Monday proved why they are great. When a team gets behind, and HMS did a little this year, you won’t see them make that up in the first few weeks. Those cars have already been built. It may be six weeks before you see the real improvement if at all. That’s what we are seeing by HMS now. Three cars in the top ten at the tricky triangle and the 48 ran up front most of the day. Chase Elliot led over 50 laps!
Joe Gibbs racing better be looking over its shoulder and out in front of them at the same time. Whatever edge they and Toyota had is starting to slip away. Don’t get me wrong JGR and Front Row are still strong, just not out ahead anymore.
Add to the fact that Team Penske is strong and we are in for a real treat for the remainder of the year.
This is NASCAR and there will always be the haves and have nots. However this year there are a lot of haves and they are really close competitively!
I can’t wait for Michigan!
