April 22 – Today in Jayski’s NASCAR history

April 22, 2000

  • Conseco Troubles? a few readers have voiced concern over the sponsor of AJ Foyt’s #14 Cup team, Conseco. Since the company announced in April 1998 that it was buying Green Tree Financial Corp., the stock has lost 88 percent of its value, closing this week at $6.62 a share. How this effects the sponsorship of the team, I don’t have a clue. Have heard absolutely nothing concerning any problems with the sponsorship. See the full story at SpeedNet: Area takes stock of Conseco, execs’ gifts, basically talks about charity gifts and such(4-22-2000)
  • Other Paint Schemes: Also noticed that there will be two #36 M&M’s schemes, a peanut butter M&M’s scheme(red?) and a green M&M’s scheme(??). The #42 Chevy will have a special scheme not named directly, the #24-Jeff Gordon as we all know will be something at the Winston, not Pokemon, I hear it will be announced three days before the Winston and they are doing their best to keep it quiet, but I hear it will a sort of reverse DuPont scheme with different stripes of some sort(4-22-2000)
  • #8 Scheme? UPDATE: see a few diecast sites are listing a #8 Michelob diecast for sale, this may be the rumored Winston scheme. Michelob is of course owned by Anheuser-Busch, who make Budweiser
    UPDATE: have been told by a Budweiser rep, that the will be no special paint scheme for the #8 Bud Cehvy and they don’t know what the Michelob deal is all about and are looking into it(4-22-2000)
