With Kyle Larson’s win atthe Charlotte Motor Speedway, Hendrick Motorsports broke a long-standing Richard Petty Enterprises’ record.
Richard Petty Enterprises’ record was always for HMS to break. Just three races ago, HMS were chasing Richard Petty Enterprises’ record of most wins in the Cup history which stands at 268. But three consecutive wins from HMS drivers have now broken the record.
Alex Bowman win at Dover International Speedway brought HMS one win away from the record. Then, Chase Elliott brought HMS level to the record with his NASCAR Cup Series Race at the Circuit of the Americas.
Finally, HMS new driver Kyle Larson’s win at Charlotte Motor Speedway took HMS one ahead of the record.
Speaking about the feat with SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, HMS owner Rick Hendrick said:
“I really wanted to do it in Charlotte. It’s home, the shop’s a mile away from here. Richard is a hero, is a great friend, unbelievable ambassador for the sport. He’ll always be the King.”
Hendrick also said that he is confient about his team winning more races this season.The three consecutive wins from the team shows that that there is more to come from the team. In addition to their 1-2-3-4 finish at Dover, all the drivers finished within the top-5 at Charlotte.
