Sprint Cup: Let the good times roll
After a struggle to get its 200th team victory, Hendrick Motorsports is red hot headed into this weekend's race.

CONCORD, N.C. - After months of wondering when any Hendrick Motorsports car would win again, NASCAR's powerhouse program is on a major roll heading into the Coca-Cola 600.

Five-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson broke a 16-race victory drought this month at Darlington Raceway for Hendrick Motorsports' 200th win, then won the All-Star race last Saturday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Throw in a Sprint Showdown victory by Hendrick driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. and a win in the Pit Crew Challenge by Johnson's No. 48 team, and it's a nonstop party for owner Rick Hendrick.

"The company," Johnson said, "is still on a high from the 200th win and the All-Star win just kicked it up another notch."

That could be bad news for the rest of NASCAR, which thought it might be gaining on Hendrick's dominance.
