Mountain Dew has been a sponsor for many years; Darrell Waltrip is shown on the left in 1982; while Dale Earnhardt Jr is show from 2017

Mello Yello has been in NASCAR "before" it was in NASCAR.  Mello Yello first premiered in the movie "Days Of Thunder".  Bobby Hamilton drove the car pictured on the left; and ended up getting a Cup ride because he was so competitive in the car. The movie was such a hit that Mello Yello got involved in NASCAR and Kyle Petty was sponsored by them for several years.  It still appears on cars from time to time though 2018.

Kurt Busch would drive his Coke C2 Ford in the Pepsi 400 at Daytona in 2004

and a few years later; Jeff Gordon would wheel his Pepsi Max Chevy in the Coke Zero 400 in 2011
