DuPont Companies On The Rear Decklid


WILMINGTON, DE.- - Ever since Jeff Gordon first broke into Winston Cup racing in November 1992, DuPont Automotive Finishes has been the "primary" sponsor on the car. Hence the rainbow theme.

For 1999, associate sponsorship comes from Pepsi, Quaker State, GMAC, Advance Auto Parts, SDRC's I-Deas, and Pedigree among others. On the rear decklid this season, other aspects of the DuPont company will be promoted.

Below are the DuPont products/businesses that will be on the rear decklid of Gordon's #24 Winston Cup car throughout the 1999 season. Thanks to Don for sending in this info.
