Labonte

Car #5
Sponsor   Kellogg's
Model Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Owner Hendrick Motorsports
Crew Chief Gary DeHart
1999 Winston Cup Points:         3580 1999 Winston Cup Place:  12th
2000 Winston Cup Points:         3433 2000 Winston Cup Place:  17th
Differential: - 147 Differential: - 5
Positives: Collected a pole at Texas, 6 top-tens and bonus points in 3 races.  Improved almost an average of 10 places from qualifying to finish of race.
Negatives:  Missed 2 races due to injury (Ron Hornaday substituted).  Had 3 DNF's, all due to accidents.  Qualified in 30th spot or below in 19 races.
Comments: Unfortunately, Terry has slipped in the standings each year since his WC title in 1996.  His accident at Daytona halted his Ironman steak at 655 consecutive starts.   Kellogg's will remain as primary sponsor through 2003.  Hopefully GMAC's expansion as a sponsor to the Hendrick teams will help provide an uplift for 2001.
Overall Grade for 2000:
