Safety

The No. 5 Chevy SS is a machine engineered for power, speed and agility; but perhaps most importantly, it’s designed for safety. Hendrick Motorsports and NASCAR each conduct weekly inspections of Kasey’s safety equipment. From his seat, fire suit, helmet and HANS device – each item is built specifically for Kasey to give him the confidence and security needed for him to focus entirely on driving.

Design

Prior to the 2013 season, Hendrick Motorsports worked closely with General Motors in designing the Chevrolet Gen6 car to get it ready for competition. After racing to the championship last season, it continues to show it has the aero package and power needed to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship.

Parts

A top-performing machine and team require the best when it comes to parts, research development and equipment. While many parts on the No. 5 Chevy SS are engineered by Hendrick Motorsports to ensure the best possible quality from start to finish, additional suppliers are employed to provide parts to the organization. The team tracks mileage restrictions for every part on the car, and once a part hits a certain number of miles, it is returned to the shop’s central parts department where it’s either sold or recycled.
