‘They give you millions of dollars’ – Insider reveals Hendrick Motorsports’ bias by Chevrolet

NASCAR only has three affiliate owners to get cars for their teams. One is Chevrolet, the other is Toyota, and the third is Ford. We all know the three manufacturers. But many people still wonder how much role does the manufacturer play? Do they give any benefits to Hendrick Motorsports, Spire Motorsports, etc.?

Well, that really depends.

Anyone who has seen a video or heard any of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s podcasts knows. Who is Brett Griffin? The NASCAR Observer answered that question on a recent episode of Door, Bumper, Clear!

Griffin said, “Just because you see a car manufacturer, it doesn’t mean they do a lot for you. There are teams that do that, if you’re Hendrick Motorsports, you’re Chevrolet, they give you everything. They give you millions of dollars, they give you tons of company cars, they give you everything you want. In terms of going back to today what the tunnel times will be.”

So, it basically depends on the team. Because Hendrick Motorsports is the best team in NASCAR. Of course, Chevrolet will maintain a good relationship with the team to get Mr. H to keep it as its factory. And if the top team in NASCAR drives a Chevrolet, that directly means fans will want a Chevrolet, too.

And then there are the Chevrolet teams that don’t understand anything.”

Sure, it depends on the team and their performance as well. Hendrik is clearly the poster child for good-performing cars in NASCAR.
