The Amelia to Honor Rick Hendrick in 2024
The Amelia, a concours held annually at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island in Amelia Island, Florida, will honor Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports, during the 2024 event. Hendrick is the winningest team owner in NASCAR Cup Series history.
Founded in 1984, Hendrick Motorsports has accumulated 14 championships and 301 points-paying race victories at the NASCAR Cup Series level with drivers including Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Terry Labonte, Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson. Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2024, Hendrick Motorsports now fields four cars in the Cup Series piloted by Alex Bowman, William Byron, Elliott and Larson.
"For my entire life, I've loved automobiles and racing. The Amelia is truly a celebration of both of those passions," Hendrick said. "The list of past honorees is filled with names I respect and admire, and it's incredibly humbling to be mentioned in the same breath. The wonderful success our organization has enjoyed has only been possible because of the many, many people who helped build it over the years. I look forward to experiencing The Amelia and sharing this very special honor with all of them."
