Who owned the Number 8 car that was driven during the 1990 Talladega Winston Cup Series?
Why did they stop calling it the Winston Cup?
After the 2003 season, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company dropped its sponsorship of the Winston Cup Series. The name Winston was used for the cigarette brand owned by R.J. Reynolds. In 2004, Nextel started sponsoring the top series and the name was changed. It's now known as the Sprint Cup Series, due to the Sprint-Nextel merger.
