“Hendrick Motorsports has implemented detailed procedures to protect the health of our team members and follows recommendations from the CDC, OSHA and NCDHHS regarding the handling of positive COVID-19 tests,’’ a statement from Hendrick Motorsports read.

The #47 pit crew also pitted Byron’s car Wednesday at Texas Motor Speedway in the resumption of the AutoTrader EchoPark Automotive 500.
