The team evolved from Gordon/Evernham Motorsports which ran six races in the Busch Series in 1999.
Gordon/Evernham Motorsports (1999)
In 1999 Brooke Gordon (then wife of Jeff Gordon) and Ray Evernham formed Gordon/Evernham Motorsports (GEM) to compete in that year's Busch Series season. The team's Pepsi-sponsored cars ran six races with Jeff Gordon as driver and Evernham as crew chief. DuPont sponsored the #24 car in two races in 1999 with driver Ricky Hendrick, with Evernham and Patrick Donahue as crew chiefs. During the season, Gordon won the Outback Steakhouse 200, the inaugural Busch Series race at Phoenix International Raceway.
JG Motorsports (2000)
The GEM cars competed in the 2000 NASCAR Busch Series under the title "JG Motorsports". The team was jointly owned by Jeff Gordon and Rick Hendrick and attempted 20 races in the year. The team ran sixteen races with Ricky Hendrick as driver and did not qualify for five of the sixteen. Pepsi stayed as sponsor for the five races Gordon drove and GMAC came on as sponsor for the races Ricky Hendrick drove. In the team's final race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Gordon won the season finale after leading the final 71 laps.
In 2002 JG Motorsports was merged into Hendrick Motorsports and became the #48 car in the Cup Series driven by Jimmie Johnson. In NASCAR 09, this team was mentioned as the #5 car in the Nationwide Series.
