In a press conference earlier this month, Rick Hendrick said Hendrick Motorsports will field an entry into select Xfinity Series races during the 2023 season.
“Some of it but not a lot of it because I’m involved with JRM, and that’s our focus up there,” Hendrick stated. “But we like to run some road courses, and some of our guys want to run some of the ovals.
“We won’t be competing full time at all, just a handful of races. It’s been a lot of fun to watch and bring those colors back. That’s kind of Ricky’s number and colors. That’s really something that I’ve enjoyed, and we’ll do a few more of those.”
This past season, Hendrick Motorsports ran the No. 17 Chevrolet in four races. Kyle Larson and Alex Bowman both finished runner-up at Road America and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.
