This Season

We’re focusing on one theme: PEAK PERFORMANCE.

What does it take to achieve greatness? How do you maintain it? And how do you continually find opportunities to improve, in EVERY area of life?

This Episode

How do you find competitive advantages to get ahead? How do you keep the grind, even after victory?

Rick Hendrick is the owner of the largest private dealership in the US. And the most dominant NASCAR team owner in history.

He’s SO good at racing, that NASCAR had to change their rules – just to give others a chance to win. 

He’s known for finding unique competitive advantages, inventing entirely new technologies to get ahead (literally), and for never slowing down – regardless of how dominant and victorious he’s become. 

His take on peak performance? Simple: “Show up to win.”
