NEW YORK, Feb.13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI)
announced today that four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Jeff Gordon
and iconic Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick will sit down for a Q&A
with SiriusXM listeners for a special edition of SiriusXM's "Town Hall"

"SiriusXM's Town Hall with Jeff Gordon and Rick Hendrick" will take place on
February 21 (8:00 pm ET) in the Bill France Room at Daytona International
Speedway and will air live on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (channel 90 on Sirius and
XM Premier).

The special will be moderated by Gordon's esteemed former crew chief, Ray
Evernham, ESPN analyst and former NASCAR team owner, who was on the pit box
for three of Gordon's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championships, and will feature
Gordon and Hendrick taking questions from the studio audience about their
careers and experiences in NASCAR.

"Daytona is a truly special place," Hendrick said. "Interacting with the fans
there will be a fun experience, and I think the 'Town Hall' format will bring
out a lot of great stories. I'm grateful to SiriusXM for the invitation and
excited to do something like this with Jeff and Ray. We're all looking
forward to a memorable night."

"Rick and Ray have been instrumental to my success on the track, and they are
great friends of mine off the track," said Gordon. "While I'm really looking
forward to this event on SiriusXM because of its 'laid back' nature, I'm
actually a bit concerned, too. Those two know way too much about me!"

"Rick Hendrick and Jeff Gordon are two of the most accomplished figures in
NASCAR's long history," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief
Content Officer. "They both achieved extraordinary success at a young age and
have consistently remained at the top of their sport. We're very excited to
have them participate in our 'Town Hall' series and give our listeners a
chance to meet and interact with them in a very unique and personal way."

Gordon, driver of the #24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet, has raced his entire
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series career with Hendrick Motorsports since signing with
the team in 1992 at the age of 20. In that time he became a four-time NASCAR
Sprint Cup Series champion (1995, '97, '98 and 2001) and three-time Daytona
500 winner (1997, '99 and 2005). He is third on NASCAR's all-time wins list
with 87 career victories, and has the most wins in NASCAR's modern era
(1972-present). Among his many remarkable career accomplishments, Gordon
became the youngest champion in NASCAR's modern era, the youngest driver to
win the Daytona 500, and the youngest driver to reach 50 wins.

Rick Hendrick is the chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group, which encompasses
more than 100 retail franchises and 8,000 employees across 13 states, and
owner of Hendrick Motorsports, one of NASCAR's preeminent race teams.
Hendrick Motorsports has garnered a NASCAR record 13 owner's championships and
14 overall: 10 in the Sprint Cup Series, three in the Camping World Truck
Series and one in the Nationwide Series. Its roster of stock-car drivers
includes four-time champion Jeff Gordon, five-time champion Jimmie Johnson,
Kasey Kahne and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Hendrick is currently second on NASCAR's
all-time Cup wins list (1949-present) and leads all owners in modern era
victories (1972-present).

A leukemia survivor, Hendrick is involved with numerous charitable endeavors,
including the Hendrick Marrow Program, which he founded in 1997, and the
Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, N.C. Gordon is an active
philanthropist who supports various organizations and causes through the Jeff
Gordon Children's Foundation. In December, he became just the seventh
recipient of the Heisman Humanitarian Award.
