Jeff Gordon and DuPont with Hendrick through 2013...we hope
It seems, however, that Jeff isn't ready to hang up the steering wheel just yet. Hendrick, having just finished negotiations with Jimmie Johnson, is now working on a lifetime contract for Chad Knaus and a sponsorship renewal contract with Duport for the 24 car.
Hendrick has now said he expects Jeff Gordon will be driving through the end of 2013 at least, and expects Dupont to be the primary sponsor on the car for the duration of that time.
It's these kinds of announcements that could be bad luck to just about every other team in the garage.
