Hendrick's Teams Are Smokin' Hot

The cars out of the Rick Hendrick Racing stable are front runners on the track this year for sure. Rick Hendrick owned cars have won 7 out of the 10 races run, 7 out of the last 8, and all 4 CoT races. Also, 3 out of the 4 Hendrick drivers have won at least one event and 2 out of the 4 have won multiple events.

Get the picture yet? Hendrick cars seem to be bullet-proof this year, and that must be a very sad thing for other teams to watch week in and week out.

All that needs to happen is for Casey Mears to get that 25 car into victory lane and we'll have all 4 Hendrick owned cars with at least one win this year - a truly amazing feat. I don't have the stats, but I would think it would not be too common to see all cars from the same 4-car organization win at least one race in a year.
Other Quick Notes about Richmond's Race:

- RCR should follow the philosophy of "when in doubt, pull it out" when it comes to loosing parts in the engine. Maybe they didn't have enough time to do the change, but I would think that for the amount of time it took to locate and tear apart the engine to find the stupid part that fell in it they could have swapped out the engine in the same amount of time. Jeff Burton must be thinking the same thing.

- Speaking of RCR, Kevin Harvick's team sure shot themselves in the foot today on Pit Road with that David Ragan non-call which allowed Kevin to pullout from his pit-stall into the #6 car. As much as I like to blame Ragan for a lot of stuff, I find him to completely without fault on this one.

- Denny Hamlin came up just a few spots too shy - again. If he can just get a win this year, surely he'll get another not too soon after that. Other than the Hendrick cars, it would appear that the Joe Gibbs organization seems to have a handle on the CoT, everyone else is out to lunch - except for maybe the RCR cars, but they have to finish a race without incident to prove it.

I'll have more racing thoughts tomorrow - maybe even a rant. Take Care.
