Owners like, Childress, Hendricks, Roush are too tied in with brand loyalty to ever consider another brand.
Perhaps their downfall but Jack Roush said it was gonna happen and this year it just might.
You kind of answered your own question; Toyota needed a flagship team, MWR & Red Bull are not the caliber of JGR. JGR wanted to be a flagship team and as long as HMS & RCR are bowtie teams JGR was going to be 3rd in line.

So you are saying when Tony Stuart was winning championships driving a GM for Gibbs they were not getting the best stuff from GM???? They were 3rd in line for the good stuff.

I have to disagree with you on that. I think when he talked to Toyota he found out their determined willingness to win at all costs. That's why he jumped ship. But I could be wrong.

I have to stay true to Smoke...he loves to race so much and really doesn't give a hoot about being a movie star! Go Smoke!
I probably won't watch much though--the chase kinda bores me....But DH enjoys it so he'll keep me filled in.

i think it will come down to carl edwards and tony stewart. these two have gained the most points in the last five to ten races, while most of the others faded a bit. however i will not count out jeff gordon, kevin harvick, or jimmy johnson, as all three of those teams have been very consistent all year long, even though johnson has struggled most of the season, and harvick has struggled recently.

Too bad for Clint Bowyer. He and his team were penalized 150 points due to the #33 Chevy not passing inspection after his win in Dover last Sunday.

Too bad, so sad for Bowyer. I don't consider him a contender, especially if he's in a legal car.

Default Bowyer denied appeal by NASCAR

Childress brought in Dr. Charles Manning, who owns Accident Reconstruction Analysis in Raleigh, N.C. Manning said he has no doubt that Bowyer's car was knocked out of tolerance the sixty-thousands of an inch that NASCAR claimed by the wrecker that pushed it after it ran out of gas following the win. Manning said he duplicated the incident with a wrecker and car of the same specifications.

Even though Dr. Manning has been used numerous times in the courts, NASCAR didn't buy it.

That's just B.S. I'm not a RCR fan by any means, but NASCAR is really overstepping it's boundaries and ruining stock car racing.

In other news, Hamlin and Harvick have kissed and made up after Hamlin basically accused RCR of being cheaters. Harvick had vowed revenge on Hamlin for his remarks. Awwww, now isn't that sweet!

I am not even sure why NASCAR has an appeals process.

I kind of felt sorry for Childress but then I remembered the Earnhardt championship the Nascar stole from Mark Martin because of an intake manifold that Nascar admitted offered no performance advantage. Deduct 40 points from Mark Martin but no deduction when Earnhardts crew took the jacks trackside to change a flat on the Childress owned car.
Is this one of those "what comes around goes around"?
