[November 25, 2009]  NEW YORK (AP) -- Getting Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s team back on track is Rick Hendrick's top priority now that Jimmie Johnson has his record fourth consecutive NASCAR championship.

RestaurantThe owner of Hendrick Motorsports says Earnhardt's team will be the organization's primary focus this offseason.

Johnson gave Hendrick his record 12th championship in Sunday's season finale, and Hendrick drivers swept the top three spots in the standings. But Earnhardt finished a distant 25th after one of the worst seasons of his career.

Hendrick says he wants all four of his drivers in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship next season.
