NASCAR Soon To Accept Imports

Many NASCAR fans are a little ticked off because Toyota announced that in 2007, they too will be running in the Nextel Cup Series. Sure the thought of seeing Dale Earnhardt Jr. clocking laps at Daytona in a Toyota Camry seems more than just a little out of place and highly unlikely, but what's wrong with competition? Many motorsport enthusiasts site that NASCAR is an American sport and should remain American powered ... great line, but what's in your garage Mr. Buy American Only? I know that some of you are hiding a Toyota or two in there. Why not let America's favorite motorsport reflect the true cross section of what Americans really drive? Besides, getting into such a high horsepower sport may actually help the Toyota company shed the nickname "rice burner".
