Hendrick Motorsports: Risk Management — A Haas Customer Documentary
NASCAR fans will already know that it was through Hendrick Motorsports that Haas Automation originally came to the sport, initially as a sponsor and supplier of CNC machine tools. In 2004, Haas Automation founder and owner, Gene Haas, established his own team, Haas CNC Racing, in partnership with Hendrick.
With the advent of Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) in 2008, the partnership between the two teams evolved, and to this day, SHR uses Hendrick engines and chassis, and the Hendrick machine shop, on its 100-acre campus, is almost entirely Haas.
Needless to say, SHR also has a machine shop composed entirely of Haas CNC machine tools, which it uses to make a wide range of parts for its three race teams. The Stewart-Haas machine shop includes eight CNC vertical machining centers and four CNC turning centers, all of which are run by just 5 machine operators.
