(Mooresville, NC) Jeff Green, driver of the No. 10 Nestlé NesQuik Chevrolet on the NASCAR Busch Series, Grand National Division, will drive a different paint scheme for the Busch 200 at New Hampshire International Speedway on May 13, 2000 and for the MBNA Platinum 200 at Dover Downs International Speedway on June 3, 2000.
The new paint scheme will promote the Nestea brand of the Nestlé USA beverage family. The color of the car is bright blue, which is a departure from the signature yellow color of the NesQuik brand.
“I thought it would be hard to top having the NesQuik Bunny on the hood of the car, but that bright blue sure is an awesome color,” said Green.
“Everyone has told me this year that the NesQuik yellow stands out on the track, but I think the race fans will find the same result with the Nestea blue.” The Nestea car is supporting a special on-pack promotion which allows consumers to mail in UPC symbols from any size Nestea soluble tea package and receive their choice of souvenir.
One of the mail-in purchase offers is a collector’s edition poster honoring the “Legends of Racing” featuring the Allison family. The poster was illustrated by the famed racing artist, Jeanie Barnes and includes the likenesses of Bobby Allison, Donnie Allison and Davey Allison. This poster was designed specifically for this promotion and is not available anywhere else for purchase. The other offers are a 1:64 scale diecast car of the No. 10 Nestea car driven by Jeff Green or a Nestea Racing hat.
Nestea will remain as an associate sponsor on the No. 10 ppc Racing entry for the 2000-2001 NBS seasons.
