What Toyota, there not any Toyota running in Nascar. Lets be frank, stickers do not make a car a Toyota. There is not a Toyota made, or ever made, that could run around that track with the American iron...

Well, you know Tony did say that the only difference between the Toyota and the Chevy was the engine and the stickers, so I don't think there was anything negative in saying that.
But yeah, I think the Toyotas will give the Chevies a run for their money. It's going to be a great race and lots of fun

I don't think it's who builds the car, I think the driver may also have something to do with it, if you put my wife in a Corvette say, and put a pro in a Toyota Corolla, Im sure the pro in the Corolla would run rings around my wife if she was in a Corvette..The drivers may have something to do with it...just my 2 cents....

Go back to japan where you all belong you lousy slant loving sellouts, just because toyota is made in america does NOT mean it is american, the money still go back to japan when you buy one. AND for eveyr 1 job they create we lose 9 american jobs, GO BACK TO JAPAN YOU YELLOW SKINNED MONKEY BRAIN LOVING CHINKS!
Are you kidding me???

MANY Japanese automakers have relationships with american auto makers.

Mitsubishi and Dodge work together

Mazda and Ford work together

Isuzu and GM have worked together

AND MOST IMPORTANT, Toyota has provided the engine thats in GM's Pontiac Vibe, Pointiac's number 1 seller. So lets see, Toyota put one of their engines in a GM car.

Go back to class.
