I am so happy to see toyota get a pole spot,now maybe they can get a win. I bet nascar officials are so proud. with all the foreign cars and drivers,with names that a mother couldnt love,they might have a whole new audience.my way of thinking there was a lot of brave american men that made that sport,and nascar should have left them alone.I for one,will find other things to do on sunday.luck to you toyota.

This is the beginning of the end for NASCAR.....20yrs from now, NASCAR will be a footnote in the history books,,,,

I wouldn't stop the presses just quite yet. How many time have you seen a pole sitter vanish in the first 20 laps? I agree it is good for Toyota but I wouldn't count on too much just yet.

I am sure all of the Americans who have family serving overseas who work at the Toyota plants in Kentucky and Indiana are happy with your views. Racing is and always will be an international competition. You probably had problems when that Italian named Andretti won the Daytona 500.
