Hendrickcars.com will be the primary sponsor on the No. 32 cars owned by FAS Lane Racing and driven by Boris Said in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series road course races at Sonoma, Calif., and Watkins Glen, N.Y.

"I'm really excited to get back into a Sprint Cup car and to raise consumer awareness for Hendrickcars.com in the process," stated Boris Said. "I, of course, enjoy road course racing and am looking forward to getting back out on the track and getting a good finish for everyone at Hendrick Automotive Group."

Said has competed in 12 Sprint Cup races at Sonoma, earning one pole and five top-10 finishes. He's made 11 Cup starts at Watkins Glen with one top-five finish and two top-10s.

Said was involved in an altercation with Greg Biffle following last year’s Sprint Cup race at Watkin’s Glen. The two supposedly made up after a post-race fight and threatening words from Said, who has been the recipient of consternation from Sprint Cup regulars on more than one occasion due to his aggressive “I have nothing to lose out here” driving style. It will be interesting to see if Said ruffles any feathers on (or off) the track this year.

A native of Carlsbad, Calif., Said is also a member of Hendrick Automotive Group as a business partner in the company's BMW of Murrieta dealership in California.

"Hendrickcars.com has seen a lot of success through our NASCAR sponsorships this season," said Chris Little, Director of Variable Operations for Hendrick Automotive Group. "Boris is an excellent race car driver, a valued member of the Hendrick Automotive Group team and a great friend. We're proud to be a part of these two races with him."

As part of the sponsorship package, Hendrickcars.com will also be a major associate on FAS Lane Racing's No. 32 entries in select races this season with veteran driver and four-time Sprint Cup race winner Ken Schrader.

"It truly is an honor to have Hendrickcars.com on our race cars," said Frank Stoddard, owner of FAS Lane Racing. "Rick Hendrick (Chairman, Hendrick Automotive Group) truly believes in this sport and the younger teams that are coming up. We're just a small team trying to build a foundation, and to have this support means a lot."
