Hendrick’s NASCAR-Inspired Speed Machine Is A Brute And It Is One You Can Buy (Video)

Hendrick Track Attack Cars

Last Updated on

Hendrick Motorsports might be a name familiar to fans of track days in the USA. Like Hennessey Performance, it is a motorsports firm dedicated to building fast, adrenaline-boosting cars that give the Lambos and Ferraris a run for their money. Bill Snider is their chief engineer. In a recent interview with The Drive, he explained how it always annoyed him that people who showed up to track days brought their supercars in trailers and not enjoying the drive to the racetrack.

His solution was a car specifically designed for such track days. A car that is not only easier to own, drive, and maintain but also faster than any Porsche 911 or Nissan GT-R. The result was the Track Attack, a car that is able to go the distance and do just about exactly what you expect of it.

NASCAR For Streets

The Track Attack is almost entirely built from the ground up at Hendrick Motorsports. From the chassis to the engine, everything is assembled in-house, so the customer has a say in almost all aspects of the car. Starting with an entry-level price of $125,000, the Track Attack is a steal as well.

The car is powered by a Chevrolet-derived LSX 454 crate engine capable of delivering 627 hp and 586 lb-ft of torque. Customers can also choose a more powerful 725-horsepower R07 V8 built by Hendrick, though the less powerful alternative gets them easier service and repairs. On the outside, the car looks exactly like any NASCAR competitor, albeit the adjustable suspension and sway bars make it much more down to earth. The best part is that it is street legal. Therefore, you can drive this car down to your local racetrack instead of carrying it off in a semi.

Inspired For Performance

Snider told that he wanted a car that can cater to the specific needs of the customers, he always found it annoying how someone would show up with a Porsche 911 GT2 RS only to ram it into the side barriers and making it nearly impossible to fix. One of his first customers owned a Camaro ZL1 that had been totaled at the Virginia International Raceway. He wanted something powerful but enough tamed to handle better than a small coupe.

The Track Attack is built to order with intense research into the driver’s requirements. In theory, each car can be unique to every customer based on their preference and driving style. Since the chassis is made by Hendrick, it can be made to suit the exact proportions that deliver just the right handling for the need. Other additions like automatic climate control and fiberglass windows are also parts of the options list.
