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.
How many are driving while either talking or texting?
All of them are talking, to their pit crew boss, the track side reporters, and even some fans for promo reasons….
Hell, that’s everyday driving on I-10 in Louisiana.
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.
A Dodge won it all last year.
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.
The only true race cars are the Indy cars.

Love the UPS truck reference!
Whatever the sport, people will always complain it’s not “pure”, “historical”, etc. I remember seeing an article where Charlotte or Darlington years ago had 82 cars start! They’d never get through the first lap at Daytona!
The second a NASCAR reference is up, people go crazy.
