    David, I just saw on my homepage news that Waltrip's Camry also had a foreign substance in the intake manifold.

    4 other crew chiefs have already been suspended, mostly for innovative but illegal ways of venting the trunk area, and they haven't said what's gonna happen to the Toyota yet.

    NASCAR's cracking down.

    Well they are still waiting for the big newsconference here in the Rusted and busted moto city from DCX about more plant closings, another miniumum 13,000 blue collars out of work. And them cring that they couldn't sell any trucks.
    But the rumors in the newspapers this morining is that they are going to sell Chrysler corp. Come in gut it, run it in the ground, and then dump it.
    Payback from WWII
    They still aren't really dealing around here on trucks any brand dodge has close to 300,000 plus stached around here and neighboring states. I called a dealer again and they still claim they can't get a 2 wheel drive PU with out all the stupid 21"rims and wheels and all the other useless bling bling. they can get me my choose of V-10's 2 wheel drive.

    It probably turn out to be an oil leak like mikey said the other Sunday. The Frances aren't going to cut and gut the new goose to baddly. The other thing is Ford and DCX have cut the racing money for this year. That's why the cat in the hat is P.O.

    Interesting article (http://www.laidbackracing.com/Articles2007/MM1.html) I know it's a long article but here is a quote that gets to the nitty gritty,
    "Jack Roush was still raising a ruckus about the concessions Toyota was being given on their still to be developed Cup engine. Toyota had spent over $300 million relating to NA$CAR. That's a lot of money to spend when you're not interested in racing in the Cup and Busch Series. We also had the negotiations going on for the new TV contract. What we didn't know was that the deal was sealed when Toyota paid up $93 million to get the deal closed for "favors to be named later" in exchange for advertising with the networks. This did eventually come to light, but as usual, no comments came out of any of the official spokesmen of NA$CAR or their media puppets. Like their attendance figures, all of this was being kept quiet."
    Sounds to me they are buying NASCAR,I especially like the comment one fan made about Toyota being as wecome as crabs at a nudist camp.
    But in all fairness to Toyota,it is NASCAR that should be chastised...if it wasn't Toyota it would be someone else,Toyota just has the biggest purse right now.

    Personally, I don't understand why any Nascar fans would have a problem with the one American car (toyota) out there racing all them American company imports. NONE are "stock" cars. Racing sheetmetal only. Not even real sheetmetal. SO, they are racing a "concept idea" around the track.

    Like professional wrestling, Nascar needs a enema, Perhaps Toyota will give it to them.

    In the beginning, racing developed cars.. they have been racing the same stuff with different sheetmetal outsides now for years.

    I have a pretty good idea, Most Nascar fans do not have a clue what is racing around other than paintjobs and shapes. Most the fans I know don't change thier own oil. Or know how. I am sure some out there do.

    yep David you are right its a cult of personality, and it came out that the new france at the helm of nascar isn't happy with the money it making. The cat in the hat isn't happy with the money, Thresea E isn't happy, jr,isn't happyhow much money can you use at one lifetime. LOL

    Well as far as I can tell they just said they still don't know what the substance is, but they are laying a $100,000 fine and 100 driver points 100 owner points and suspended Their crew cheifs and car chief on a number of general rules breaking. They said it has to due with fuel, but they won't go into detail So they will let him race tomorrow in ruddamans back up car. Plus they are keeping the car for further inspection. Jack must want a look

    If you don't like it don't watch it.

    I happen to like Nascar racing very much.

    And so far I haven't heard anything except misplaced emotions.
