Hendrick Motorsports has been the most dominant team in NASCAR Sprint Cup racing in recent years. Landing a Hendrick Motorsports ride means that you have arrived in NASCAR as the best of the best. Here is the 2010 Hendrick Motorsports lineup.
2. Jeff Gordon
Jeff Gordon is the senior member of Hendrick Motorsports. Jeff has four Championships and has the longest tenure with Rick Hendrick of the full-time Hendrick drivers. Jeff has a lot of experience and he's willing to share it with his teammates. Jeff is also part owner of the #48 driven by Jimmie Johnson.
3. Mark MartinMark Martin retired from full-time race after the 2006 season but he returned in 2009 with Hendrick Motorsports ready to tackle The Chase and try for that elusive title. Martin came up just short finishing second behind his teammate Jimmie Johnson.
Mark is one of only four drivers to ever win a NASCAR Sprint Cup race after age 50. He will likely be in the hunt once again when it comes Chase time this fall. Can he add oldest Champion to his resume and break his bridesmaid streak? He has the tools, he will just need a little bit of luck.
Junior has been largely unimpressive since he moved to Hendrick. He still routinely wins NASCAR's Most Popular Driver award but his future as a driver is somewhat cloudy.
