Hendrick Motorsports Shining This Weekend In Kansas

Hendrick Motorsports finally reached victory lane two weekends ago in Kansas. Now, can they win for a second time in three weeks for Saturday’s Digital Ally 400 (7:30 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)?

So far, it seems like yes.

Chase Elliott has won the last four races for Hendrick and in fact won the last time the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series visited the Kansas Speedway last October. Elliott, won at Talladega and also finished fifth in the rain delayed race at Dover on Monday. Furthermore, he has two top four finishes in his last three Kansas starts and was sixth in both the 10 lap and single lap averages at Kansas on Friday as well. He starts fifth on Saturday.

His teammate Alex Bowman will be tough too. He’s finished runner-up in each of the last two races on the season and was second quickest in final practice too. Bowman, was 10th fastest in the first session too to go along with being seventh overall on the 10 lap average in final practice. He also finished ninth in the fall race at Kansas last year too. He’ll roll off 10th.

William Byron looks fast as well. The second year driver was fifth and 11th respectively on single lap runs in practice and eighth and 10th respectively on the 10 lap averages. He gave HMS three cars in the top 10 of the starting lineup as he’ll start seventh in his No. 24 Chevrolet.

Then there’s Jimmie Johnson. From 2007 through 2016, the seven time series champion had 14 top 10 finishes in 16 tries. He was sixth and 10th respectively on single lap runs in practice on Friday.

The speed seems to be there. Can they capitalize on Saturday?
