KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Hendrick Motorsports is back at Kansas Speedway, hoping a track that has yielded plenty of success over the years will allow it to finally reach a milestone.
The team has been stuck on 199 wins since last October, when Jimmie Johnson drove to Victory Lane at Kansas. The 13-race winless streak is the longest for the organization since the 2002-03 seasons, or about the same time Johnson was breaking into the Cup series.
Hendrick drivers have come close the past couple of races. Johnson and Jeff Gordon were in contention at Martinsville before a late wreck, and Johnson dominated last Saturday night at Texas before Greg Biffle passed for the lead late in the race and held on for the victory.
