USAC, TRANS AM, NASCAR'S SOUTHWEST TOUR, THE CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES and the BUSCH GRAND NATIONAL SERIES. Kenny's automotive passion came from his parents Art and Renee Hendrick, as Art was an accomplished racer as well and a regular competitor in the famous BAJA DESERT races. His parents passion for the automotive industry didn't stop at the races, They were amongst the first Volkswagen Dealers in America.
