Hendrick Motorsports

If you were Chad Knaus and you just won your seventh NASCAR premier series championship as a crew chief, what would you do next?

If you guessed beat a drum during pre-game of a Carolina Panthers’ football game, you’re right.

On Sunday, Knaus was a guest of the Panthers at Bank of America Stadium, where the NFL team was taking on the San Diego Chargers. Knaus was brought in to beat the team’s “Keep Pounding” drum prior to the start of the game. He was also given a jersey with his name and the No. 48.
