Okay, I've got the idea.

Why not just call it the RJ Reynolds Cup? (or, of course, the RJR Cup or the Nabisco Cup).

The Winston name is "technically" not part of the game anymore, and RJR still gets its free advertising out of NASCAR's "Major League Series".

Also, it's easier to print, "Rusty Wallace wins RJR Cup" than it is to print, "Dale Earnhardt wins his ump***th Winston Cup."

I guess the only problem would be if Ricky Rudd won the thing. He'd probably think the Cup was named after him...

Another idea:

How about RJ Reynolds buying a potato chip company (Frito, Ruffles, etc.)
Rename the potato chips Winson Potato Chips (they could have BBQ, ridged,
non-riged, Sour Cream and Onion, etc.) The series would then be the WINSON
potato chips Cup Series with the Winson in REALLY BIG LETTERS and the
potato chips in very fine print.

Problem solved ;-)

I think we should call it the Nabisco cup.
