Hendrick Motorsports

Hendrick Motorsports (HMS), originally named All Star Racing, is a current American auto racing team created in 1984 by Rick Hendrick. The team currently competes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. One of stock car racing's premier organizations, Hendrick Motorsports has garnered ten Sprint Cup Series owners and drivers championships, three Camping World Truck Series owners and drivers titles, and one Nationwide Series drivers crown, 209 Sprint Cup Series victories, 29 Nationwide Series wins, and 25 Camping World Truck Series victories.

The team currently fields four Sprint Cup Series Chevrolet SS's, including the #5 Farmers Insurance Group/Quaker State for Kasey Kahne, the #24 Drive to End Hunger/DuPont car for four-time Sprint Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon, the #48 Lowe's/Kobalt Tools car for five-time Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, and the #88 United States National Guard/Diet Mountain Dew car for Dale Earnhardt, Jr.. The 2009 season marked the 25th anniversary of Hendrick Motorsports, which has fielded cars for past NASCAR stars Geoff Bodine, Tim Richmond, Darrell Waltrip, Benny Parsons, Ricky Rudd, Ken Schrader, Terry Labonte, Kyle Busch, Mark Martin, and Brian Vickers.

All Hendrick race cars are constructed start-to-finish at the 100-plus acre Hendrick Motorsports complex in Concord, North Carolina. More than 550 engines are built or re-built on-site each year, with the team leasing some of those to other NASCAR outfits. Hendrick Motorsports employs over 500 people that perform many day-to-day activities. In 2009 Hendrick Motorsports made history by having 3 out of 4 drivers in the top 3 places in the points.
