Lowe's Locks Down Hendricks Through '13

On the verge of a fourth consecutive NASCAR Championship, Jimmie Johnson has extended his contract with Hendricks Motorsports through 2015 and Lowe's has secured an extension as primary sponsor of Johnson's No. 48 Chevrolet through the 2013 season.

"Jimmie Johnson and Hendrick Motorsports are a key part of our marketing efforts and outreach," said Lowe's chairman Robert Niblock. "We believe this is the best combination in racing, and we're proud to have Jimmie carry the Lowe's name in NASCAR."

The previous sponsorship agreement was set to run through 2010.
