Dodge Leaves NASCAR

NASCAR lost me when they started running "Cookie Cutter" cars.It used to be that all you could do was balance and blue print and engine. A car owner even had to run factory gaskets, stock spark plugs, in other words, they had to have the car as stock as it was coming off the assembly line. If NASCAR ever went back to that format, I would, more than likely, go back to watching.See More

"WOW! 590 hp! I would like that little jewel in my 55 Dodge. I would guess that the "Offroad" rating is because of the emmisions not being able to pass the rules in force today."
