I don't care what type of car he drives. As long as Smoke is behind the wheel I will cheer him on.

He got booed a little at the Rumble in Ft. Wayne over the winter. He addressed it by saying it made him race better. LOL

I think more people were cheering for him than booing. I wish he could tune them out because they are such a minority and probably were team members of other racers.

From my experience, people tend to boo the best, not necessarily the bad. So he should really take it as a compliment.

I heard that if you're not getting booed, no one is paying attention anymore.

True :) Any attention to Juan says is better then none at all! If you're booing or dissing them you're still paying attention to them!

Dale Earnhardt said that he was always booed more than any other driver at the time. He made the comment that the more who booed the better he knew he was driving.

I think TS handled that interview very well. And he understands that Americans will support there American brand. I hope he switches back to GM when his contract is up with Gibbs.

Debi did you bother to read the article and what it is about? Did you even notice what Tony had to say? He did a great job but you completely missed his point!

I seriously doubt that you will ever see Smoke behind of an American brand car in NASCAR, unless Gibbs Racing switches back to an American brand.

By the help and support that Toyota is given Gibbs Racing, I don't see that happening.

I am puzzled when people moan about Toyota. Lots of jobs are created with foreign-owned plants in America.

I wonder if the Toyota-haters think it is bad for GM to be a huge presence in Europe? Are we invading Europe with our dominance in foreign companies?

How about jobs? "Just this year (2006), Ford and GM have terminated 46,000 North American employees. Together, they have announced the closing of 26 North American
factories over the next five years. Toyota has never closed a North American factory;
it will open a new one in Texas this fall and another in Ontario in 2008. Detroit isn't being bested by imports: 60% of the cars Toyota sells
in North America are made here.

Toyota doesn't have corporate convulsions, and it never has. It restructures a little
bit every work shift. That's what the open space in the Georgetown paint shop is all
about."

I agree with you it's doubtful, but Tony has strong ties with Chevy so you can never say never.

And if Henry Ford was alive, he'd be appalled by the way that the management of the company has turned its back on its own workers.
