Throwback Thursday-Jerry Nadeau-1998

By David G. Firestone

Jerry Nadeau in better days, racing his 1998 First Plus Financial Ford Taurus.

It’s 1998, and one of the greatest legends in football is in the twilight of his career. He needs to do something after football, so Dan Marino teamed up with Bill Elliott to form Elliott-Marino Racing. Jerry Nadeau was the first in a rotation of drivers in 1998, sponsored by First Plus Financial. The color scheme is based on the Miami Dolphins color scheme. The #13 is based on the jersey numbers, and it’s good look. I don’t like the U design across the door, I think the whole car should look like the rear of the car. Aqua top, orange stripe on the bottom. Still, I think that, all things considered, it could be worse.
