9. Cartoon Network

Honestly, it’s kind of hard to hate on Cartoon Network Wacky Racing. It was a cool program that lasted five years and definitely got some kids interested in the sport. It’s also related to the WCW/nWo deal; since Cartoon Network was a Turner network and WCW and nWo were on Turner networks, they often shared cars.

From 1996 to 2000, this sponsorship bounced around from Diamond Ridge Racing to Melling Racing to Galaxy Motorsports. Drivers like Robert Pressley, Jeff Green, Jerry Nadeau and Wally Dallenbach would not find Victory Lane with it. In fact, not until 2000 (Dallenbach at Galaxy) would one driver complete the full schedule with a Cartoon Network-sponsored team, and by then, TBS was the primary brand of choice on the car.
