Winston Cup was born on tax day 2001. He got his name from Winston Cup Racing. When NASCAR changed sponsors to Nextel, friends asked if we were going to change his name but of course the answer was "no" which was a good thing cause not long after that, NASCAR changed once again to Sprint; and besides the name Winston just seemed to fit. Winston is very social cat and loves to be where the action is. The neighbors love him and he loves them. If you look at the marking on his nose upside down, it resembles a heart so guess this is a way he can share his love to all.
