#96-Tony Raines and #66-Jeff Green have agreed to a friendly wager regarding the outcome of Saturday night's Sharpie 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. While no cash will change hands, the driver that loses the bet will have to do what most competitors consider the unthinkable - wear another race team's colors at the track. If Raines' #96 DLP HDTV Chevy finishes better than Green's #66 Samsung HDTV/Best Buy Chevy, Green has agreed to wear a #96 DLP HDTV racing hat next weekend at California Speedway. In return, if Green posts the better finish, Raines will sport a #66 Best Buy racing hat for the Labor Day weekend race.(GMR Marketing/Best Buy PR)

i figured it would have to be, i just know that when a driver is signed by a sposor they dont want them supporting the compatition. That would be like Tony in victory lane drinking a Pepsi.

Best buy press release and Raines drives the DLP car and a lot of TVs at Best Buy use DLP technology so I'm sure it wasn't that hard to make the agreement as they already have a corporate relationship.

I was about to say, won't be too big of a deal since they aren't on T.V. much, unless you count the interviews after they wreck.
