It appears Ames was co-sponsor of the Ames-Peak Antifreeze 200 race at Dover Intl speedway...   I found this ad in an old issue of Stock Car Racing

Was that Kyle Petty that was sponsored by Ames in the Nascar series.  If so, what year was that?  Has to be at least the early 80's.  And why is the car orange, wasnt Ames main colors green and white?  Did they change over the years?

WOW IMAGINE THAT !


they had an Ames racing team!:o:o


Well problably the reason why that the Ames car in the Pic is red and white and not green in white is that pic is from the around th 1980s and/or early 1990s before they changed their colors to Ames Greeen and White.

BTW what happened to the Ames team?

I mean before 2003! They've mustive been still in operation in the 1990s at least when the stores were around right?:question:

The car has a  style first found on the 1988 Grand Prix, so it's probably around that year.  

Here's the Ames sponsored race ad again :yup:

Service Merchanise was an associate sponsor of the #94 Bill Elliott McDononlds Ford back in the mid 90's.  I think it was only for one season.

Also, True Value sponsors all of the cars, and I think a few years back, Target sponsored some cars.

Were a little off-topic (Ames sponsor)  but Kmart used to be a big sponsor in Nascar and racing.  Target, Lowe's, Home Depot, Menards, Service Merch. Circuit City and Best Buy, Heilig-Meyers are or have been sponsors.    Did Wal-Mart ever was a sponsor of anything?

Kyle Petty and Todd Bodine were the drivers for the #42 Ames Department Stores, Inc 1989  Pontiac Grand Prix SE.... Kyle drove for 11 races ,  his best finishes were 2nd and 3rd... Todd drove for 8 races, he had 1 top 5 finish and 2 top 10 finishes. The car was with Blue trim. Ted Conder and
Felix Sabates were the co-owners. Ames only sponsor the team for 1 year (1990).

Rose's Department Stores sponsored some races.

Here's a very cool ad I found on Ebay. It looks like Jamesway also sponsored racing in the early 1990's. :)

I think the Pittsburgh Penguins games also had Ame's as one of the sponsors on the boards at the then Pittsburgh Civic Arena(now Mellon Arena).

Both Ames and Service Merchandise sponsored stock cars during the times
I worked for them.

Frankly this did not go down well at all out in the stores.
Particularly as we were either in or soon to enter Chapter 11 in both cases.

When you can't get payroll, merchandise, various other things, and have to
fight to try and collect bonuses they owe you, it just really burned most of us
to see those cars racing around and think about how much the company must
have paid for that sponsorship.

Service Merchandise not only sponsored a stock car, but hired Bill Cosby for
a high profile TV ad campaign which bombed.  That really cheesed us off.

Been thinking about this a lot these days as the scandal and controversy continues to build around Bill Cosby.  When his face went up all over our store and his ads started running on TV endlessly, we joked that "now the major career-ending Cosby scandal is going to break!"

Just about two decades too soon with that prediction I guess.

Found another one...Best sponsored Dean Combs in 1984.



Publix sponsored Junie Donlavey's #90 car for one race each in 1990 and 1991. Supposedly the guy who approved the sponsorship was given the boot for that.



Harris-Teeter also sponsored the car in 1990, but I can't find an image of the car.
