Hendrick Motorsports is looking to sweep the field this 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup season. Owner Rick Hendrick is nothing but grateful for his 2016 team including freshman Chase Elliot, who will be driving the legendary No. 24 car.
“It doesn’t matter what kind of business you’re in, it’s the kind people,” said Hendrick. “We’re looking out of the windshield, not the rearview. We focus on the championships ahead, not the ones behind us.”

Richard Childress Racing is coming off a very successful 2015 season. Two of their three Sprint Cup Series drivers (Ryan Newman and Paul Menard) made the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup, while Ty Dillon finish third in the XFINITY Series standings. But don’t expect RCR to be satisfied with anything but a championship in either division this season.
“The goals are higher this year. We expect to make the Chase, now we have to get up there and win a championship,” said team owner Richard Childress. “I know how hard this group has worked. I spent a lot of time in the offseason around the shop, more than ever, and our focus is there in every department.”

I imagine a big Toyota Tundra, sparkling on a revolving platform and surrounded by a ring of slot machines. Lights flashing. A video board flashing ever-increasing numbers as the jackpot rises exponentially and the shot at a brand-new truck grows ever more tantalizing.
CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES!!!!

As with all teams at this time of year, Roush Fenway Racing is sharing the same level of excitement for the upcoming season that is flowing throughout the NASCAR community. But, coming off one of the more disappointing Sprint Cup Series seasons in recent memory, Roush Fenway Racing revealed a certain level of confidence and optimism throughout its organization on Ford Wednesday. And should those convictions spill over onto the track, RFR just might find itself competing for a championship.
“We, as an organization, were trending in the right direction at the end of last season,” said veteran driver Greg Biffle, who is looking to become the first driver in NASCAR history to win all three national touring championships. “Everyone is on a mission to make our cars better, faster. There’s a great energy right now.”
