Most fans don't have any issues with it.

Not news. Please move to OT.

I might start watching NASCAR if Toyota starts to win.

I just want to see them do it.

I'll watch just to see how it impacts the sport all together. It'll be interesting see if Toyota will attract any of the "tuner" market to NASCAR. And if so how will it change the sport, if any at all.

And Here's NASCAR's welcoming gift to Toyota:


The good ole boys that run that crap known as a sport have made it perfectly clear that they don't really like Toyota being there, but can't really do anything to STOP them from racing, except, accuse them of cheating, and being so tough on them in the technical inspections that they can't be competitive, and hope that they'll just leave. (I guess they don't watch F1!)

Didn't they find jet fuel in it?

I thought they just caught a bunch of teams cheating. I don't really follow NASCAR so I could be wrong.

They will do anything to tarnish Toyota.. funny thing is, they did not make this much stink when they ran and won in the trucks..
