Why is Toyota now part of Nascar
 Nascar = National American Stock Car Racing...
 So why Toyota? Toyota is not an American car company and in my eyes this ruins the stock car world. Seems to me the many traditions of Nascar have been thrown out.
 Do you feel this move toward Toyota is good or bad..
 Please explain....

well if it is about traditionalism, Ford and Chevy drive Models that do not actually come stock with a V8. So realistically only Dodge is running a model that comes stock with a V8. Not to mention these cars arent stock at all anymore. If it is about Americanism, Toyota assembles more Cars and Trucks in America than any of the Big 3. I say bring them all on and change the name. Mercedes, Ferrari, BMW, whomever, we need the best racing possible.

I don't think it makes much difference anymore.  Not like the old days when make was really important.  These days it's more about the drivers than the cars.

I think it's great for the sport having a company like Toyota who will step up to the plate in terms of R&D and funding for the teams. NASCAR isn't just an American sport anymore-yes it has its roots in America but place like Canada and Mexico want a piece and I'm from Britain and love the sport. There's no reason companies like Toyota shouldn't get involved if they are going to help maintain or boost the quality of the sport-and they have. And NASCAR stands for National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing rather than American

Well, lets see...hmmm...it costs about $500,000, and thats a light figure I know for 1 car...if you have a 3 car team you're talking 1.5 mil....Toyota has lots of money, and Mike Helton is always looking to bring more money to Nascar.....it would be great if we could return to the grassroots of the sport, it just isn't practical. Thats why, I think, I love dirt track racing so much.....you sorta get the feel for the "good ol days"....
