Jeff Gordon will keep racing!
Jeff finished in the top 10 yet again in the Ford 400 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday and fellow teammate Jimmie Johnson finished 5th and picked up his fourth straight NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship. As a result Jimmie Johnson makes NASCAR history as the first driver to win four consecutive championship titles.

Jeff is 3rd in the overall standings just 179 points behind overall leader and champion Jimmie Johnson. It has been a strong showing in the 2009 Sprint Cup Series with 3 out of the 4 Hendrick drivers occupying the top 3 spots.

Fellow Hendrick Motorsport teammates Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson and Mark Martin finished 28th, 5th and 12th in Miami.

Be The Match is $500 Better Off.....
Check presentation to Be The Match Foundation (left to right - Mark Thornton, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet, Gordon Boyd, Cape Fear Corvettes, Booker Williams, Be The Match Foundation and Bill Bordwine, Cape Fear Corvettes).

$500 was raised at the 2nd Annual Cape Fear Corvettes Car Show hosted at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet for Be The Match Foundation. Be The Match is very close to our hearts with the Hendrick Marrow program and this year along with the Cape Fear Corvette Club we were able to raise $500. The Cape Fear Corvette Club held a 50/50 raffle at their 2nd Annual Car Show with all the proceeds going to the charity and the dealership matching what the club raised.

So far, the Hendrick Marrow Program has raised over 1.7 million dollars and typed over 31,000 marrow donors. But, the race is not over. We still need your help. To learn more about the program, complete a donor form or read patient stories, visit the Hendrick Marrow Web site.
