    " I am first to admit I am not up on NASCAR. My complaint is teams, it seems that one car pushed Newman out front."

    Of course he did. That was his team mate. They get paid to help each other. NASCAR is fast becoming the rolling version of the professional "wrestling".

    Between dummy Waltrip screaming "Toyota drag race! Toyota drag race!" and Mike Joy yelling about a "Penske tag team", I thought I WAS watching wrestling.

    That's what I get for turning the sound on. Wasn't a bad race to watch, though.

    I've been a Winston Cup fan longer than I care to remember, but I've had it with the sport that has evolved into a riduculous circus event. What a joke this great sport has become. First of all we can no longer refer to "Winston Cup" since tobacco is no longer socially acceptable - then we fell into the restrictor plate era which has turned the super speedways into bumper car arenas - now foreign cars are running in a race that has, at its roots, a heroic and colorful american historical period of prohibition, american-made cars modified to deliver the goods. do what you had to do to have the fastest car. lastly the hype of "the show" where the aging 'has-beens' (eg chubby checker) who command center stage overshadow the importance of the race and painfully delay the start. The last straw is the COT - this is the demise of NASCAR as we know it - one set of templates - you can't tell one car from the next - it used to be Ford vs. Chevy vs. Mopar - brand identification - now what? Now it's all about personalities (the drivers) who could be driving or flying or riding anything as long as the price is right, it wouldn't matter. And by the way, enough of Jr. already, he'll never, ever be the driver / personality that his father was - and don't get me started on Toyota - bah! What tradition or history can toyota put on the table that would justify the intrusion of this foreign maker into our north american great race. (like I don't know the answer). We are witnessing the very rapid evolution of the NASCAR race into a 'product', which has been 'branded' and 'targeted' to 'markets' (no one is spared - children, dogs, eskimos) and 'packaged' for 'mass consumption'. end result - regression to the lowest common denominator. Well, I feel better already!!! Trevor Dawe.
