Hendrick Motorsports Figuratively Owns Pocono Raceway

2013 NASCAR Sprint Media Tour Hendrick MotorsportsRick Hendrick might as well buy Pocono Raceway.

Over the past few years, his drivers have owned it, winning the last five races at the 2.5-mile track: Dale Earnhardt Jr. (2014 sweep), Kasey Kahne (2013 summer), Jimmie Johnson (2013 spring) and Jeff Gordon (2012 summer).
The last non-Hendrick Motorsports driver to win at Pocono was Joey Logano, who took the checkered flag from the pole in the spring of 2012 for Joe Gibbs Racing.

Hendrick Motorsports’ 17 victories at Pocono are the most of any race team and almost double the total of the next-best organization (Joe Gibbs Racing, nine).

Hendrick has won at Pocono with seven different drivers including Tim Richmond, Geoff Bodine, Terry Labonte, Gordon, Kahne, Johnson and Earnhardt Jr.

Richmond captured HMS’ first Pocono win in June of 1986 and returned in July to sweep the track with another victory.
