|HENDRICK MOTORSPORTS AT TEXAS: Hendrick Motorsports has earned nine wins, 37 top-five finishes, 68 top-10s, six pole positions and 2,299 laps led at Texas Motor Speedway. Jimmie Johnson most recently visited Victory Lane at the track for the organization in April 2017. The organization owns six wins in the last 13 races at Texas, the most among all teams, with Johnson winning four of the last nine.
THREE MAKE NINE: Hendrick Motorsports is tied with Roush Fenway Racing for the most Cup wins all-time at Texas. The organization’s nine victories at the track have come courtesy of three different drivers: Johnson (seven), Jeff Gordon and Terry Labonte.
APPROACHING DOUBLE DIGITS: A Hendrick Motorsports victory this weekend would add to the list of venues where the organization has posted double-digit wins. In total, 13 tracks make up the list: Martinsville (24), Dover (20), Charlotte (19), Pocono (17), Atlanta (14), Darlington (14), Daytona (14), Talladega (12), Bristol (11), Indianapolis (10), Fontana (10), Richmond (10), and ISM Raceway (10). Hendrick Motorsports currently has nine wins at Texas and New Hampshire.
FINISHING STRONG: At least one Hendrick Motorsports driver has finished inside the top 10 in each of the last 25 Texas events, which is the longest streak all-time at the track. The organization swept the top-two finishing positions at Texas on two occasions: in 2009 (Gordon and Johnson) and in 2013 (Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr.).
KEY DATE: This weekend’s Cup Series race at Texas falls on March 31. The last time a Cup Series race was run on that date came in 1996, when Jeff Gordon found Victory Lane at Bristol Motor Speedway with teammate Terry Labonte finishing second.
1.5-MILE CHAMPS: Hendrick Motorsports has a Cup Series record 58 total wins on 1.5-mile tracks. The organization has earned at least one win on a 1.5-mile track in a record 25 consecutive seasons. Chase Elliott most recently extended that streak from 24 to 25 seasons with his Oct. 21, 2018, victory at Kansas Speedway, becoming the 10th different driver to win for the organization on a 1.5-mile track.
VICTORY LANE IN A CHEVROLET: Hendrick Motorsports is responsible for eight of Chevrolet’s last 10 wins on 1.5-mile tracks, three of which have come at Texas Motor Speedway.
FIRST-TIME WINNERS: Hendrick Motorsports holds the record for the most first-time Cup Series winners with nine. If William Byron or Alex Bowman wins at Texas, it will extend the record to the 10th time a driver has recorded his first career Cup Series win while driving for Hendrick Motorsports.
ORGANIZATION STATS: To date, Hendrick Motorsports has totals of 12 championships, 252 race victories, 216 pole positions, 1,046 top-five finishes and 1,791 top-10 finishes in points-paying NASCAR Cup Series competition. Its teams have led more than 67,000 laps since 1984.
