If nothing else, Hendrick Motorsports will celebrate one accomplishment this weekend: The team will start its 3,000th race dating to Geoff Bodine's appearance in the 1984 Daytona 500.
"If you can win such a majority, I think it says a lot about your ability to put people in the right places," Earnhardt said. "I'm sure there are other things that play a role in that over the years, but I guess it comes down to Rick's eye for talent."
