Although I drive a VDub and enjoy them , I can't see NASCAR being a good fit for the brand. Grand-Am possibly, but not NASCAR........guess we'll just have to wait and see. If they do enter the sport, I hope Kyle Busch gets behind the wheel of one!

I say bring them in. They are all the same car with different stickers. Hell, slap a Duesenberg sticker on them. Maybe bring back Oldsmobile.

That would be a GREAT thing for NASCAR!!! The more forgien makers in the series the more exposure. We all know that Formula 1 reigns supreme overseas, but when automaker jumps in, heads will turns, and tvs will tune in.

I think NASCAR should have a sedan series similar to the series in Australia. Run those cars the morning of the Cup races wet or dry to satisfy those who think racing should be done in the rain.( would help to dry out a damp track also)
If enough people show up early to watch the sedans then maybe NASCAR could give them their own dates.
Sure would be a lot more entertaining than stunt shows or marching bands.

Make those cars run engines that come in the cars only race prepped. Bigger tires, Bigger brakes.

Everybody complains that NASCAR racecars are not stock cars and they are correct but lets see if people will pay to see real stock cars race.
Bring on the Foreign Manufacturers maybe they'll have better luck than the F1 drivers.
