Kellogg's Frosted Flakes Breakfast Cereal, 1994-1996

Summary

NASCAR's growing popularity is illustrated by this cereal box. Early cars and teams were sponsored either by companies that sold automobile-related products, or businesses that sold food or beverages purchased by fans at the track. By the 1990s, even breakfast cereals and fast food restaurants found potential customers in stock car racing's expanding audience.
