NASCAR’s most popular driver is in need of sponsorship for 13 races in 2013. Team owner Rick Hendrick is not concerned that the No. 88 car is currently bare for some events. “We’ve got a lot of good opportunities,” Hendrick said during Wednesday’s stop of the Sprint Media Tour. “The way we’re positioned, the car is covered until the end of the summer. I don’t have a deadline [for a deal]. I’m not looking at a timeline. I’m looking at the right deal.” The National Guard will be on Earnhardt’s car for 20 races in 2013. Hendrick Motorsports’ other three cars are fully sponsored and Hendrick noted that he was close on two or three deals for the No. 88 car. Photo Credit: Getty Images for NASCAR
