CONCORD, S.C. (AP) - Rick Hendrick says he made a mistake last year, something the owner's teams haven't done much lately.
Hendrick acknowledged he added pressure to his programs when he spoke of win No. 200 so soon after Jimmie Johnson collected the 199th victory at Kansas last October. Then came the lost chances and missed opportunities that stung Hendrick's four teams until Darlington Raceway earlier this month, when Johnson earned the milestone win.
Since then, the Hendrick cars have been unstoppable. Johnson won the NASCAR All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway last week before Kasey Kahne won his first race with Hendrick in Sunday night's Coca-Cola 600.
Hendrick is working on a new goal now: having all four of his cars in NASCAR's championship chase. Don't bet against him.
