I would agree.

Nascar in some ways just needs to go away...it has become more of a soap opra for men then actual interesting racing.

That and you watch about 3 laps for every 8 ad breaks...

Don't forget about Honda.... (See my post in the Honda F1 thread)

And you'd better believe Nissan will be in there when $$$ improves.

Besides, everyone knows that 60-70% of the Toyota engine is base on Chevrolet engines anyway (That came out when Toyota entered the truck series)

Naturally, they're aisna, so they steal other comapnies innovations, put lipstick on a pig, and are reveled far and wide for being such TECHNICAL INNOVATORS!!!!!!!!1111!!!!

There needs to be a new trans-am series for real cars that are RWD in real life, like Camaros and Stangs and Challengers. Let's see Toyota try and compete in that.

There's a RWD, Subaru based sports car coming from Toyota.

Go to an SCCA event and watch A-Sedan, or to a NASA event and watch Camaro-Mustang Challenge, or American Iron.

Best part is if you pay a years dues (SCCA is about $75 for an individual, or $100 for a family for a year) you get into unlimited races free for the year.

Or, do as I did and work as a corner worker. You get up close to the action, and they feed you at the track to boot.

It's about a billion times more fun than Nascar.

Oh, and you might meet John Heinricy..he races a blue Firebird in A-Sedan.

I would love to watch that sort of racing.

As a wise poster said years ago:

"NASCAR = Putting Skittles in a toilet and flushing"

Wasn't that way at one time, but it is now. Insanely boring.

The trouble with SCCA racing is the rule book is about 3 feet thick and contains more bull$h! than a libertarian. NASA is a better bet since it's newer and doesn't have the politics of SCCA.

+1 on both counts. And make those God Darn oval tracks into curvaceous racetracks with real curves.

Here's the illustration to go along with it
