Miss Nehi racing team

Jim and Al Retif’s Miss Nehi racing team also based out of New Orleans. All of the Nehi’s were first class and very competitive. The naming of the hydros was not random. The Retif family owned the RC Bottling Company in Baton Rouge and the Nehi brand was one of the sodas bottled at their plant. I’m not sure if there was any sponsorship money involved but the Nehi brand sure got a lot of great exposure. Two great Louisiana race teams, both with a unique soda pop connection.
