CONCORD, N.C.— With an exciting 2014 coming to a close, we're taking a look back at what you, the fans, made the most-popular content on HendrickMotorsports.com all year long.
It's a way to reflect back on key events throughout the calendar year, and may even bring back a few memories you'd forgotten about.
With just two races left in the regular season, Kasey Kahne was teetering on the edge of Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup contention.
At Atlanta Motor Speedway, he put all doubts behind him as he earned his first win of the 2014 season in thrilling fashion and locked in his spot in NASCAR's postseason.
It was a fitting celebration on the track and in Victory Lane.
This year, as part of the Valvoline Reinvention Project, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson built two classic trucks using a range of parts that span decades of technology.
Johnson built a 1955 Chevrolet truck, while Earnhardt built a 1974 Chevrolet truck.
Head to Earnhardt's North Carolina property as the driver of the No. 88 Chevrolet SS worked with Devin Super Tramp to capture Diet Mountain Dew's #DEWroadtrip video.
It involved plenty of dirt and dust as participants went for a ride on various contraptions pulled by Earnhardt. The driver himself even went for a ride.
On the verge of the start of the 2014 Sprint Cup Series season, the Hendrick Motorsports cars were all set for testing at Daytona International Speedway.
This gallery showed off all four cars in addition to a decal that each one would sport on the track in honor of Hendrick Motorsports' 30th anniversary.
In advance of Jeff Gordon's 750th career Cup start, we took a look at memorable photos from the four-time champion's career.
Let's just say there was a mustache involved.
Earnhardt started the season as well as possible, driving his way to Victory Lane at Daytona International Speedway.
The Daytona 500 victory secured Earnhardt's spot in the postseason after just the first race of the season, and he celebrated in style.
For the third consecutive season, Hendrick Motorsports sent all four of its drivers to the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. And the race shops were abuzz as the cars were readied for NASCAR's postseason.
The most popular gallery of the year gave an inside look into the process of adding the signature yellow—and all the necessary decals—to each Chevrolet SS.
