#21, It's a motor built to very strict Nascar specifications...

Carbureted normally-aspirated 358ci iron-block pushrod V8... probably pushing out around 750-900hp.

It has the advantage of being a "from scratch" design... completely designed with computers and optimized like you wouldn't believe... Chevy's Nascar engine STILL dates to 1955, I don't know Ford's Nascar engine history... Dodge's Nascar engine dates to 1995, actually.

#28, Wow, very intersting to have such Japanese efficiency applied to what is a very old design concept.

#29 you love your Honda like you love your Ganja?! :P

#30, Well, I'm not saying ONLY the Toyota engines will be making 750-900hp... that's about average for all the engines... Smaller teams that don't get engines from larger teams will be running with 750-800hp donks, whilst teams like Yates (Ford team) that are known for getting monster power out of their engines can get up to and maybe even beyond the 900hp mark.

#31, I didn't think you meant that Toyota's motors were more powerful, I know that the competiveness of NASCAR wouldn't allow that for too long. I just assumed that the intensive design makes it a more efficient, reliable (haha) motor.

Oh... right... well, Toyota has definitely proved its worth in the Truck Series... finally... took them a long time to get their first win, and by the end of their first season, they only won a handful of races... last year they were "Just another one of the makes"... average performance like everyone else...

But this year... Toyota has won more than half of all the races, and the only 4 guys that are within reach of winning the championship are all in Toyotas. But really, I think it's because, except for Roush Racing and KHI, all the best teams are running Toyotas... they'd be the best teams even if they WEREN'T running Toyotas.

Next year will be difficult for Toyota... there are going to be over FIFTY FULL-TIME teams attempting all the races... only 43 cars will make the show every week, only 8 teams not in the top 35 in points will make it each week... and most of Toyota's teams will start off NOT in the top 35 of points next year. Plus, really, they've got CRAP teams...

Toyota teams for Nascar next year:

Bill Davis Racing
22 - Dave Blaney - Caterpillar : This team has actually shown some promise as this season winds down... IN the top 35 of points.
36 - Jeremy Mayfield - 360 OTC : Bill Davis finally goes back to being a 2 car team...Mayfield's a good driver. OUT of the top 35.
Michael Waltrip Racing
00 - David Reutimann - Burger King/Domino's Pizza : Rookie driver, rookie team... OUT of the top 35.
44 - Dale Jarrett - UPS : It's Dale Jarrett. It should be alright. OUT of the top 35, BUT has the Past Champion's provisional, so they'll make the races no matter what.
55 - Michael Waltrip - NAPA : Crap. That's about it. OUT of the top 35.

Red Bull Racing
83 - Brian Vickers : This two-car team is a virtual unknown... they've DNQ-ed all their "warm-up for 2007" races this year. OUT of the top 35.
84 - A.J. Allmendinger : Rookie driver... never been in a stock car. OUT of the the top 35.

#11, I'm three years too late, but not everyone in Kentucky builds Camrys.

Some of them build Corvettes.

Well, Toyota has definitely got their act together in Nascar... the best thing they ever did was bring Joe Gibbs Racing into their fold... BDR disappeared, MWR has gotten better, but not great... they did win one race with Reuti this year... and RBR dumped the excellent Allmendinger for their heavily-marketed F1-flunkie Scott Speed... who sits somewhere in the mid-30s in points... but at least Brian Vickers made it into the top-12...

...oh, and Toyota also has Robby Gordon and a few other small-potatoes teams not worth a mention...

Joe Gibbs Racing is still going strong with Toyota, winning tons of races and contending for championships...

Michael Waltrip Racing disappeared after a couple HUGE cheating scandals that they got clobbered for, penalty-wise (cliff's notes: they got caught adding rocket fuel to their intake systems [I'm not fucking joking on that] and having a driver intentionally wreck to ensure his teammate got a good points finish)

Red Bull Racing lost interest in the sport, abandoned it, and their remnants were bought up and became "BK Racing", which was almost like if a ponzi scheme started a race team, causing another headache for Toyota and finally bit the bullet last year.

One brief bright spot was Furniture Row Racing, based out of Denver, of all places. With a JGR technical alliance, they won a championship with Martin Truex Jr., and almost followed that up the following year, but finished second in the points.

...then FRR's owner had a heart attack and closed the team. FRR's equipment got bought up by some sports marketing people, they threw together a race team on the cheap, have put some young, up-and-coming drivers behind the wheel (some being "pay" drivers), and, out of nowhere, lightning struck. No, literally, lightning struck, and caused the rest of the race to be red flagged and eventually called, with their driver, Justin Haley, in the lead due to some gutsy pit road calls. Controversial victory, but fun to see a virtual unknown reach the top of the mountain.

The "technical alliance" FRR had with JGR has now transferred to Leavine Family Racing, who almost won a race this year with Matt DiBenedetto. Next year their car will be piloted by Rookie of the Year contender, and current dominant force in the lower racing series, Christopher Bell.

So, yeah, Toyota's down to pretty much 5 teams, 4 from JGR and 1 from LFR. There are a few other random one-off teams that run Toyotas, like Justin Haley's, but it would take lightning striking again for those smaller teams to win.

#37, Oh, and about Scott Speed... he fell. HARD. How far has his career fallen? He's been relegated to online videogame racing leagues, which he's actually recently banned from, for intentionally wrecking other competitors.

#39, ... ... ... That's some sitcom level self-parody.

I kinda do feel just a teeny bit bad for Michael Waltrip, he was just doing what his big brother did, but lacked the finesse to not GET CAUGHT time after time.... (you can't tell me a guy who drove for Junior Johnson was clean any deeper than his fire suit) As far as he knew growing up, being a cheat was just how it was, which is why he never learned as those fines got bigger and bigger, and even as NAPA walked out the door with it's suitcases and straight to the airport taxi, I think he actually thought "Eh, they'll come back, this is all just a misunderstanding"

Or maybe that wreck at Bristol just permanently scrambled his brain's judgement center?
