Jeff Gordon and Wal-Mart?
Walmart has issued a statement that they will not be sponsoring Jeff Gordon's Hendrick Motorsports team. NASCAR has been the subject of several published reports that the world's largest retailer was in negotiations with Hendrick Motorsports to sponsor the #24 car for next season. On Wednesday August 25, Walmart released a statement as an Editor's Note to an in-house newsletter that mentioned the "numerous news stories" and concluded with the following sentence: "While we continue to employ a range of marketing initiatives to deliver our message of Save Money Live Better to our customer [sic], this is not one will be doing."(Bleacher Report)(8-30-2010)
