    I'll admit, I'm pretty curious to see who it will be and I'm by no means a Gordon fan.

          Seems like many may be staying home to do that exact thing for their family. There is a reality outside of "Nascarnation" that has made it tough for many.

              I think this shows just how hard the sponsorship thing is right now, if Jeff who is very marketable, has had great success and is with a front running team can't find a real sponsor and has this sort of deal going on then where is that leaving everyone else as deals expire. The economy may have at least leveled off but companies are still tightening.

              Is it May yet ?

                Hendrick Motorsports is not donating space on the car, team owner Rick Hendrick said.

                AARP Foundation President Jo Ann Jenkins said that the foundation hopes to work with other companies who want to be part of the effort and have placement on the car.

                Neither Hendrick nor Jenkins would say how much the AARP Foundation is spending, but current full-season sponsorships are being sold for approximately $15 million. That would mean the price per-year for two-thirds of the season likely would be at least $10 million.

                “We expect to raise far more money than we’re investing in this [sponsorship] if we’re going to solve this issue of hunger in America,â€‌ Jenkins said. “But it’s also about raising awareness. … People in this country don’t realize how many seniors or older people in this country are going hungry every day.

                That's half of the much rumored $30M deal that Bud had with Jr. for his last year at TEI... and substantially less than the rumored $25M/yr deal that JG had with DuPont.

                  15 Million sure would by a LOT of food to feed the hungry!

                    Per Jayski, Dupont resigned for 3 more years to be the primary sponsor for 13 races.

                      ANother reason I will never join AARP. Not the sponsorship per se, the commercialization of a retirement organization.
