I thought It might be a good idea to have an open discussion on a few of the teams in NASCAR, if not all of them. What a better choice to start with than the team that has won the last three Sprint Cup Championships, and eight cup championships total.

One of stock car racing's premier organizations, Hendrick Motorsports has garnered eight Cup Series championships, three Camping World Truck Series titles, and one Busch Series crown. The team currently fields the #5 Kellog's/Carquest Chevrolet Impala for Mark Martin, the #25 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet Impala part-time for Brad Keselowski, the #24 DuPont Chevrolet Impala for four time Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon, the #48 Lowe's Chevrolet Impala for three time champion Jimmie Johnson, and the #88 U.S. National Guard/AMP Energy Chevrolet Impala for Dale Earnhardt, Jr., all in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

They are the best team on a consistent basis. They have the two best drivers this decade has seen, the best crew cheif in racing, and year in and year out they contend for the championship. Hard to say otherwise.

My favorite driver on the team would be Mark Martin.

Other than that.....I'd like to not think about them for a little while more. ;) I'll hear plenty about them come next season. :blah:

Mark Martin in the 5 is a plus. I often wonder what that 1998 season would have been like if Mark had Hendrick horsepower under the hood of that 6 car.

They are the best in race. I can see HMS putting ALL four teams in the chase next year. They may not win the championship, but I think JJ will extend his top 5 season finish streak to eight years...:shock:

Even though I've been a fan since '78, it was the '90's that I was big time gun-ho over nascar. Those were some great years. Jeez, if I'd had sirius then......:eek: I've been online since '96 but those were lean years for online info.

Anywho.... I sure would like to see Mark win it all. What a story and a boost it would be for the sport. Mark's the Dan Marino of nascar.
