 Tony Stewart wins in the #80 Chevy


Tony Stewart wasn't the only winner after his victory in Daytona (Fla) International Speedway last month, Fred Swift of Rosenhayn, N.J. won Stewart's race-worn fire suit from the Feb 14th NASCAR Nationwide Series event. Swift entered the drawing thanks to the Hendrick Automotive Group and  and was randomly chosen out of 22,000 entries. Rick Hendrick called Fred to notify him of his win and congratulate him.


This was Tony's first race racing for Rick Hendrick and Hendrick Motorsports and is now one-for-one with the team. The car was numbered #80 representing all of the Hendrick Automotive Group franchises. Hendrick Motorpsorts has retired the #80 Chevy raced by Tony Stewart, but it will now embark on a nationwide dealership tour of all the Hendrick Automotive Group dealerships. Keep checking back for exact dates but you can expect to see the #80 stop by Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in Wilmington, NC around August 2009.
