Performance Psychologist

On Track

Did you know that in a tenth of a second, there are 1,200 chemical changes in the human body? Psychologist Jack Stark, PhD, knows this.That’s because he works in one of the most mentally challenging sports in the world: stock car racing. And his drivers need to know how to deliver.Stark joined Hendrick Motorsports in 2001 and helps keep the 550-employee company running smoothly. On the job, he has three roles — sport psychologist, industrial/organizational psychologist and clinician. The scope of his job is so broad that on a typical day, he may start the morning with a critique of a pit crew drill and end it by counseling an engineer who is struggling with depression.
