Teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished second, followed by Carl Edwards and Jeff Gordon, giving Hendrick three of the top four spots. The 1-2 finish was the 23rd for the multicar team and third at Martinsville.

The Hendrick Team holds one of the longest standing sponsor/driver/owner relationships in NASCAR history.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr., driver of the No. 88 National Guard/AMP Energy Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports, is collaborating with Wrangler in a charity auction bid on ebay.com.

Nascar collecting is something more than just having a bunch of race cars around your room or house, it’s about enjoying what you have and […]
