He's threatening Toyota because it was allowed to participate in Nascar.

Personal opinion:
The guys a hick, the kind that buys domestics because its patriotic and helps the economy or some un-educated crap. Is it me or does he actually feel threatened and thats why he had to make those comments?

see thats what i thought at first too, but its not just talk, he's selling 50% of his race team in order to have more funds to fight them.

roush is already low on money, they just finished sweeping up another shop in MI where i knew a couple people that got laid off. if toyota is going to bring big bucks to the table, he's going to need some big bucks fast to match. think about it that way as to why he sold 50% off.

"I don't see them spanking the Ferraris in Formula One," Chevrolet team owner Rick Hendrick said.

LOL I'm sure they could, they did pretty well in CART.

just keep in mind that when ford goes bankrupt and you have 3 million employees competing for your job. that the reason it happened was because people arent buying american products.
so why did you buy a japanese car?

Anyway if people want their products bought they need to build better products for a better price, period.. the japanese manufacturers are doing that, thats why they make sales, but I dont see what this has to do with nascar

well its a mentality that they have for their cars.. just as some of us have against domestic cars..

im a person whos ownd 2 fords (88 ranger and 00 escort) but i have just have a dislike for them.. after i sold the escort i got the G20.. and ill never own another 'american' brand car again.

then theres people who striclty buy amerian cars.. and hate on imports

it will always be like that.. but take your average nascar fan, most likely they will be one of the diehard chevy/ford/dodge fanatics.. its just the way it is.. so my comment about a typical ford lover.. well if you love ford, you usually dont love any other companys.. bleah..

long winded.im tired.. im eating cake, its good.. well..i feel better now.

enjoy!

hey I only like Nissan, all the cars I'll ever buy are going to be nissan, except the Ferrari Enzo.... but for work we got a Dodge ram van, and I pamper that thing too... I got love for all cars, but then again I can just be a bit more open minded than your average Nascar fan. Cant wait to see how Toyota does on the circuit. Wondering which engine they'll run...
