[quote}Conquist said there was some tinkering with the engines of cars driven by J.J. Yeley of JGR and Tony Raines of Hall of Fame Racing because "we knew the Toyotas [have] certain things in them we weren't used to running."

"We were actually building those motors trying to get comfortable with some of the stuff they do," he said. "Some of the rules written by NASCAR we weren't to that edge, but they were."

[unquote]

Explains all of JJ's comments on the radio. One about it feeling like he was hauling a boat. and then the engine that blew. So basically JJ took a 21st place series ranking for the "Team". Gosh he did that all year long! I guess Hall of Fame is not far enough away since they also messed with Tony Raines engine too!

I'd give 2 to 1 odds Gibbs is more successful next year with the so called Toyota than Mikey and his stumbling bumbling race team.

I think that with the speed the Toyota's were showing at the end of the year and the talent JGR now has on his team they are a real threat to take Daytona. The smart teams won't be underestimating them.

Durn, it breaks my heart to have to agree with you but I think JGR is going to show up at Daytona with just as fast and reliable car as ever. It's a pushrod motor, what else do they need to know. They have already raced a half the races in 07 with the chassis and body with another badge on the front. You're right, Joe Gibbs and company aren't going to struggle like Mikey and company.
