I am not a HMS fan, my father in law was diagnosed with Leukemia the very same week that Rick Hendrick was, my father in law died that same year, whether Rick had it or not is between him and his doctors.... he is the one that has to answer to it not us who judge him.........

You are so right Hendrick fans are Nascar fans--so of course they believe everything they are told!!
Why has no one ever questioned how Hendrick's Cancer Doctor and personal friend (LP) went from living in a 1 million dollar home to a 3 million dollar home at the time of the medical testimony to get him the Presidential Pardon!!

For those of you who doubt he faked it, let's look at the series of events....
1 - Conviction
2 - Hendrick makes a sizable donation to a hospital
3 - That same hospital finds that Hendrick has Leukemia
4 - House arrest is ordered
5 - Hendrick is never seen going to a doctor for treatment
6 - Upon his release from house arrest, it is announced that Hendrick's Leukemia is in remission.
7 - He has lost NO hair and lost NO weight. He appears 100% healthy after a year of treatments
8 - His Leukemia does not relapse or cause him any more medical issues
9 - He buys a pardon
To question his Leukemia is not insane. To NOT question it is insane

I think that Ricky and others on that plane paid the price for Rick's scam.

As mentioned above, he had a relapse later...after he paid his debt to society for his plea of "guilt". Lets consider the "crime". He paid off Honda executives, so that he would get additional delarships and preferential treatment on stock of new cars. He admitted to this and apologized for his mistakes. Hardly a felony as I would see it, but that's the law and he has done his time.

Rick has lost his son, brother and other family in a plane crash, almost lost his life in a plane crash and TWO bouts with leukemia. The second bout seemed worse from an outsider perspective. He wasn't around the racetrack at all and did look sickly when he was photographed or on video. The conspiracy theorists can believe what they want, because normally those people are just that type of thinker.

Of course Rick Hendrick had leukemia. Try another conspiracy!

You are a cowardly lying a-hole who hides behind the anonymity of the internet to spew your venom and get your jollies.
How's the weather in Buffalo this time of year? What's the matter, is your benefits check late again? Is that why you're all stirred up? Or did the old lady turn you down yet again. Why? Did the Viagra not work?

Do you remember the 2001 Pepsi 400 where Dale Jr had to 3/4 throttle the car to keep from getting too far ahead of the pack. The 8 car was able to pass lines of cars without drafting help.
About as funny as Richard Petty's 200th win with a seriously oversized engine.
If a driver can't dominate in a Hendrick car, he should retire.

1. He did his time?
In 1997, Hendrick pled guilty to mail fraud. In the 1980s, Honda automobiles were in high demand and Honda executives allegedly solicited bribes from dealers for larger product disbursements. Hendrick admitted to giving hundreds of thousands of dollars, BMW automobiles, and houses to American Honda Motor Company executives. Hendrick was sentenced in December 1997 to a $250,000 fine, 12 months home confinement (instead of prison, due to his leukemia), three years probation, and to have no involvement with Hendrick Automotive Group or Hendrick Motorsports during his year of confinement. In December 2000, Hendrick received a full pardon from President Bill Clinton

2. He had a relapse that was worse than the first bout?

Afterward, he and his wife, Linda, were honored in 1999 with the Be The Match Foundation's Leadership for the Life Award. The award recognizes individuals who have made an extraordinary commitment to serve marrow transplant patients. Some of the past patients include U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young, baseball great Rod Carew and former Postmaster General William J. Henderson. He takes a personal approach to the cause after being diagnosed in November 1996 with chronic myelogenous leukemia, but has been in full remission since December 1999.

These are excerpts from a wikipedia article on Rick Hendrick.

I know you are going to say that wikipedia is not a credible source but I have found it to be very accurate on public figures over the years. When something wrong is printed, it is usually removed in short order. I knew that I had never heard of a relapse and I have followed NASCAR faithfully for years.

Someone who visited him while he was on "house arrest" told a lot of folks he wasn't sick. I'm not going to say who it was, but he witnessed Rick, a man who was supposedly very ill, building/rebuilding a hot rod. I couldn't do that on my best day, much less while battling a crippling disease. It's a slap in the face to those who actually fought any type of illness and those who can't afford to stay out of jail for doing a lot less. At least he's consistent, though, his cars have constantly been caught cheating (Magnesium hubs on the 24, scaled down T-Rex car, illegal body work, hydraulic trunks, etc.)...

Rick Hendrick is as pig. It's as simple as that. Based on the evidence he built his car business on fraud and corruption. It's a fact. I hope he goes broke. Lot's of people in North Carolina will agree with me. Most of us in business could be successful like Mr. Rick if we used the corrupt methods he has used over the years. That loser should have gone to prison for many years AND he should have had his assets seized under the RICO statutes. If he had been caught today he probably would be sent to prison for many years. And the Nascar drivers he has should be ashamed to be associated with his company. Look at poor Dale Jr. Not only can't he win a race but I bet his night club goes under anytime. Just my 2 cents.

That's just what his media machine reported. To have 2 full remissions from lukemia is just hogwash.

I could care less about phoney leukemia but J Johnson winning 5 championships is immpossible unless nascar is letting them cheat.
Nascar is just entertainment and far from real competition.
Hendrick is skirting the 4 team rule by supplying cars and unlimited technical support to Stewart/Haas racing.
Your average run of the mill criminal can never even hope to get a pardon.

I am a huge Gordon fan. I was disturbed to find out of a possible "murder for hire" involving Hendrick and his former employee Billy Crump. Look up Billy Crump Rick Hendrick articles for Myrtle Beach, SC. Hendrick has too much negative press around him for me to beleive he is innocent of anything. I still love Jr, 5-time, and especially Jeff but can only think Hendrick is a crook and is even possible of paying a hit-man to take out his own employee because he knew he would lose money if he didn't!

A short time before the indictments were coming, Hendrick was "diagnosed" with Lukemia.
Shortly after his "Mansion Arrest" was completed, his Lukemia vanished. Of course he didn't have lukemia. Hendrick didn't lose any hair and he gained weight and that is impossible.
Hendrick then bought a presidential pardon brokered by Roger Clinton by making a large donation to the Clinton Library.
Hendrick played the system just like his race teams get away with cheating in Sprint Cup.
Of course he didn't have lukemia.
I didn't believe it for a second.
What he had was a lot of money,
ergo...no penalty.
Most attorneys and a lot of judges would take money under the
table when they know it's dishonest, to get someone off.
Integrity? I think not !

First Hendrick breaks the law, makes a large donation to the hospital ( tied to one of his friends ) BEFORE he is diagnosed, THEN becomes ill, gets PARDONED( he still did the crime no matter what ) makes a quick recovery and so on.

Trust me, if he tried to pull off that series of events in 2012, Rick Hendrick would be healthily behind bars.
