Rick Hendrick squashed rumors that Lowe’s, sponsor of five-time Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson and the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevy, would not return to the team following the 2013 Cup Series season.
Lowe’s will be back. I don’t know where that came from, but they’ll be back. Wishful thinking, maybe, by some of the other folks, but they’ll be back.
Hendrick did note that the deal with Lowe’s is verbal at this point, but he said it is early and that he’s confident they will finalize it.
