    When was the last time you could get a Ford Fusion or a Toyota Camry with a rear-drive, V-8 configuration? Never. The last Chevy Impala with a V-8 was in 1996. Dodge returned to that configuration on the streets just a few years ago.
    For you NASCAR, “buy American,” rednecks, here’s another point. Which car out of the 4 raced in NASCAR is actually built in the United States?
    Chevy? No. Canada. Dodge? No. Canada. Ford? No. Mexico. Yes, it’s Toyota, which builds its Camry cars in Georgetown, Kentucky, which falls in the heart of redneck country.

    They should run “The Great American Race” on I-495. Eight laps should take, oh, 4 days.

    Dodge pulled out of NASCAR when they couldn’t compete with Toyota.

    All of them are talking, to their pit crew boss, the track side reporters, and even some fans for promo reasons….

    They do have a (pickup) truck series, the SUV would be a good one. And hey, no dumping on NASCAR cars, they are real purpose built 900 HP racing machines.

    Yep, its true, “American made” cars are assembled elsewhar, and Toyota assembles Camrays in Georgetown, But I can assure you. The outskirts of Lexington is hardly the heart of redneck country.
    BTW. The Corvette is assembled in Bowling Green Kentucky and I can Gar-on-tee that part of the Commonwealth is redder than Lexington… Too many Blue Bloods up thar.

    Believe it or not, I did a Tank Sunday about restrictor plates back on Nov 18, 2012.

    And I think the Designated Hitter rule is ridiculous. And all cars should have one passenger of the opposite sex, yelling directions.

    You can’t tell from the drawing but the yelling passenger is happening in the minivan with the luggage carrier.

    The only true race cars are the Indy cars.
