RIDGEWAY, VA - APRIL 07: Jimmie Johnson, driver of the #48 Lowe's Chevrolet, celebrates with team owner Rick Hendrick after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series STP Gas Booster 500 on April 7, 2013 at Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Virginia.

It was great to see Jimmie, [crew chief] Chad [Knaus] and the No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet SS team clinch the pole and then win the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Martinsville ... The win is extra special because Martinsville is [team owner] Rick Hendrick's home track. Hendrick Motorsports now has 20 wins there to lead all organizations. Congratulations to Hendrick Motorsports on its 212th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win. It is so special for so many reasons.More quotes »
