Inascar Notes:/I Skinner In No Bull 5

ROCKINGHAM, N.C. -- R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. and its Winston brand announced Sunday that Mike Skinner, driver of Richard Childress’ No. 31 Lowe’s Home Improvement Chevrolet, has been added to the field of drivers eligible for the Winston No Bull 5 $1 million-dollar bonus at next weekend’s UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The sixth-place finisher in last season’s final Winston No Bull 5 event, the Winston 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, Skinner will join Kenny Wallace, Joe Nemechek, Jeff Gordon and Terry Labonte to round out the field of five eligible drivers.

Skinner takes the place of Dale Earnhardt, who won the Winston 500 and was killed in a tragic accident last weekend in the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Wallace Finds Sponsor: Sara Lee Coffee & Tea will sponsor two teams in the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 next Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Hills Bros. Coffee, made by Sara Lee Coffee & Tea, is the primary sponsor of Junie Donlavey’s No. 90 Ford Taurus, with driver Hut Stricklin. Donlavey’s car has carried the brand’s logos since 1999.

Kenny Wallace will also drive a car sponsored by Hills Bros. Coffee in Las Vegas. The No. 27 Pontiac, fielded by Eel River Racing, will don a paint scheme featuring the 100 percent Columbian blend of Hills Bros. Coffee. The front half of the car will be the same Ferrari Red as Stricklin’s No. 90 Ford, but it will fade to black toward the rear of the car. The "television panel," or back end of the car, will display the Hills Bros. Coffee 100 percent Columbian blend logo.
