This paint scheme was designed to promote the University of Nebraska's football and volleyball national championships, while Cornhusker All-American linebacker Trev Alberts was tagged to be the high-profile spokesman of the car. However, co-sponsors could not be found to offset the $4 million needed to run the race car, and Nebraska backed out of the deal before the first race of the 1997 season. Melling Racing instead entered into a sponsorship deal with Cartoon Network. Accordingly, this University of Nebraska paint scheme was never raced in 1997.
