Rick Hendrick is a familiar face at Barrett-Jackson auctions and with good reason: Not only is Hendrick the founder and owner of the Hendrick Motorsports NASCAR Sprint Cup team, but he’s also the nation’s largest Chevrolet dealer.

And in recent years, Hendrick has become an avid collector, too, specializing in Corvettes and General Motors muscle cars. Recall that earlier this year at two other Barrett-Jackson auctions, Hendrick paid $1 million each for the right to purchase the first production 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C7 coupe and convertible.

As was the case Thursday, charity cars continued to dominate the Friday action at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Collector-Car Auction.

The big seller was a 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Penske Racing No. 2 Dodge Charger driven by Brad Keselowski last year as he drove to his first Cup championship. Donated by team owner Roger Penske, the car sold for $500,000 with all proceeds going to benefit the NASCAR Foundation, which involves itself in a variety of charitable efforts for children in need.

ANOTHER CHARITY HIT —  There’s a new high seller! Lot 3001 is a 1957 Lincoln Continental Mark II and the second charity car of the day and it sells for an astonishing $700,000.  There isn’t a dry eye in the house as Kimie Metcalf, an 8 year-old cancer survivor and patient at the Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital, talked to the crowd. “Doctors gave me only a 30 to 40 percent chance of surviving,” Kimmie said. “Well, here I am!” Every penny of the sale goes to Loma Linda. Tears flow freely in the crowd after hearing Kimmie speak.
