Rick Hendrick Drops Over $2 Million On Corvette Stingrays
The legendary NASCAR team owner bought the rights to the very first 2014 Chevrolet Stingray convertible last night at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach, dishing out a whopping $1 million that will go to a very noble and charitable cause.
Surprising? Not really since Mr. Hendrick is a huge fan of Corvettes and is a very charitable individual.
Flashback to Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale in January, where Hendrick bought the rights to the first 2014 Chevrolet Stingray coupe for $1.1 million. âCorvettes are a passion of mine,â said Hendrick. âI love those cars so much, and to have the first Corvettes from the new generation means so much to me.â
The pair of No. 1 2014 Chevrolet Corvette bookends raised over $2 million for charity, with last night's proceeds benefitting the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute.
To top it off, Hendrick Motorsports superstar Jimmie Johnson captured the pole for Sunday's STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway.
