One More Reason to Love NASCAR March 16, 2007Posted by David Card in Media.
Oh man, I think I may be getting hooked. Gotta love this.
- AT&T on Friday filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Atlanta to have its logo replace the Cingular logo on the No. 31 Chevrolet driven by Jeff Burton…
- As a part of the 10-year, $700 million contract Nextel — now Sprint Nextel — signed in 2004 to sponsor the Cup series, cellular phone competitors not already involved with NASCAR were not permitted to enter the sport.
- Alltel and Cingular were grandfathered in and allowed to continue their sponsorships of the No. 12 car of Ryan Newman and No. 31 of Burton. Because AT&T merged with Cingular and the Cingular name is being phased out, NASCAR argues that Cingular no longer is protected.
