What a blow. The Hendricks team isn't my favorite, as if that matters at all. What does matter is that the whole organisation is a class act.
Thoughts and prayers to the family and team.

I'm the last person qualified to comment on Nascar, but I feel compelled to say I think someone on the Hendricks team was stoic. There was nothing anyone could have said to the driver that would changed reality. Someone understood this and let the driver drive.

What was the worst that could happen? A punch to the solar plexus? A victory? In any case, people died today.

There is no shame in what happened today. Only sadness and loss.

Cheers,

I can help you out. Hendrick is the owner of the team. He lost his son, his brother and two nieces. It's a tragic loss and reminiscent of Reba McIntire's band's plane crash, only instead its family members.

I respect Rick Hendrick's decision not to tell his drivers until the end of the race. It must have been difficult for him not to have their support. I'm not sure if any of the crew members of the drivers' teams knew or not.

Suddenly it won't be so tough for me to handle a Jeff Gordon or Jimmie Johnson chapionship this year.

My prayers remain with the Hendrick family and their loved ones.
