Hendrick Motorsports Experience

If you are Lowe’s and you are working on a new set of mechanics tools, using the Hendrick Motorsports facility as the backdrop for your launch is brilliant.

Over 500 hundred people work in this location and up to 550 race engines are either built or rebuilt here in a given year.
