CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 2, 2010) – When the green flag dropped at the March 7 KOBALT Tools 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Mark Martin was driving the No. 5 Hendrickcars.com Chevrolet and wearing a brand new, specially designed firesuit. At the same time, thousands of visitors to Hendrickcars.com were entering online for their chance to win the race-worn suit.
And now, one of those visitors will be walking away with the grand prize.
Cullen Casey of Glendive, Mont., was selected randomly from more than 20,000 entries and notified of his win on April 1 by Hendrick Automotive Group. But before the firesuit is delivered, it will have one more chance to visit Victory Lane when Martin lines up the No. 5 Hendrickcars.com Chevrolet for the April 18 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event at Texas Motor Speedway.
Martin, who will race the same Hendrickcars.com firesuit at Texas, finished no worse than sixth in two events last season at the 1.5 mile track. He has posted one win, six top-five finishes and 10 top-10s in 18 career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts there.
Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports and chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group, has posted three victories at Texas Motor Speedway, most recently with driver Jeff Gordon in April 2009.
