Hendrick Motorsports’ General Manager issued a public “big apology” to Chip Ganassi Racing on Friday (June 4) for the mechanical failures that resulted in CGR’s two Cup cars finishing in the last two spots of Sunday’s (May 30) Coca-Cola 600.
Ganassi is part of a technical alliance with Hendrick. While Hendrick Motorsports won the race with Kyle Larson and put all four of its cars in the top five, Ross Chastain finished 37th and Kurt Busch finished 38th.
Jeff Andrews made his comments on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
“We owe a big apology to them because we let them down in a big, big way with both of their cars over there the other night,” Andrews said. “There’s some corrections we’ve made to the issues we’ve had there with the front drive system.
“But that was 100% on us. That had nothing to do with anything in their raecars or particularly their teams or vehicles. That was 100% on our group there. We own that one. … We owe them a lot better than what we did over there Sunday night.”
