The Toyotas and the Fords have to play in the hendricknascar sandbox, handicapped by AERO and engine rules, all while the, GM teams sit back and brag about how hard they are working.


That’s easy, they don’t have NASCHEVY on their side.

I certainly hope that this race on the Vegas 1.5 mile track isn’t a sneak peak into another year of Hendrick domination.


They were FAST! Were! NA$CAR (Chevs and Toyotas) don’t like that and change the rules accordingly when they are.
