Rick Hendrick is one of the most successful team owners not just in NASCAR, but in all of sports ever. So he has a lot of money, and he's cool with spending it. And he just spent one million of his dollars on the badass new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Daaaaammmnnnnn.
Barrett-Jackson Auctions are frequently home to the sale of the first production car, which is auctioned off for charity. In this case it went to the Karmanos Cancer Institute. Hendrick had a rare form of leukemia that he beat, so he frequently contributes to cancer research charities such as this one. Rick Hendrick has a gigantic car collection and has bought a number of new cars at these auctions. And most of them seem to sell for near $1 million.
In fact, Hendrick also purchased the first Corvette coupe and convertible, each for $1 million and each at Barrett Jackson auctions last year. All he needs to do now is buy the first 2015 Z06 convertibleand he'll complete the set.
