Its NASCAR time! And Hendrick Cars and Automotive group owner Rick Hendrick is going to be standing at interesting cross roads tomorrow in these times of economic hardships and challenges. A friend was talking to Rick some days back and said that during the conversation, he was surprised when Rick reminisced on the times when he made entry into this sport.
Those were the days when Rick was low on money but high on enthusiasm and spirit. These are definitely the key ingredients if you ask me. The necessary formula which propelled Rick to such heights today. So any way Rick talked about the times back when his up and coming company Hendrick Motorsports was an early riser in this domain. Rick was very humble in acknowledging the hard work and tough times they had to face back then. Rick recently celebrated his 25th anniversary.
Now of course if you are a NASCAR fan and an auto sports jockey, you would know that the company address is Concord in North Carolina. The company employs about 500 people. Hendrick auto is also going to field cars for the Daytona 500 for defending champion of the series Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and of course Dale Earnhardt Jr.
But that’s not all, there is last but not the least Mark Martin. Mark is the Bret Farve of Motorsports. He recently was planning to retire but could not leave the game, it was too emotional for him. Hendrickcars is a phenomenon and an American treasure if you ask me.
