NASCAR Fans React!

By Ron Updated on June 4th, 2007

I’m not a NASCAR fan nor foe. I could really care less about the sport but this article bothered me. It seems two popular drivers, Darrel Waltrip and Dale Jarrett, have decided to drive Toyota cars and many NASCAR faithful are bothered by it.A young 17 year old fan reacted, “I think they shouldn’t be in here. It’s an American sport.” Words of wisdom from a young man of wisdom I am sure. Perhaps this young lad, in between his English class tutoring, would like to take a look at Baseball or Basketball and note that many of the players are not from the USA. Should we ship Dirk Nowitski back to Germany? I doubt Mr. Cuban would agree.

Toyota makes the best cars, invented the best manufacturing process known to man kind, and has every right to participate in NASCAR.

Until next time, I wish you all the best on your journey towards continuous improvement.

    A neat bit of trivia to support your point:

    Question: In which which countries are the Dodge Charger, the Chevy Impala and the Ford Mustang built?

    Hint: Not in the country that invented NASCAR.

    Answers: Canada, Canada, Mexico

    I wonder where does Toyota builds their race car?

    Pity… this kind of arrogant thinking is exactly the reason why American manufacturers are so far behind Toyota in the first place!

Have something to say?
