Comments: This year amid team transition, Jeff slipped in points and in the standings.  As the team gelled, he managed 10 top-ten finishes in the last 11 races.  DuPont stays on as sponsor through 2005, but the familiar rainbow paint scheme that saw  51 victories and 3 WC championships will be replaced in 2001.
