Robert Yates Racing always built some of the fastest cars on the track, these guys were winners and renowned for the speed of their cars.
Rudd shut down his team as an owner/driver after the 1999 season and joined team owner Robert Yates in 2000. The combination paid off in a Brickyard 400 pole in the famed No. 28 Texaco/Havoline Ford.
The start of the 2000 season began with Yates fielding cars for two of NASCARs most talented veterans in Jarrett and Rudd. From 2000 to 2002, Jarrett and Rudd combined for 11 NASCAR wins, 71 top fives and 114 top 10s. The teammates were in the top 10 in driver point standings all three seasons solidifying RYRs spot among the most successful teams in NASCAR history.
Everything on the #28 is fresh, inspected, or replaces. It has all correct graphics, sponsor decals, and livery. Great car for show, track events or vintage racing.
