Fans will be leaving the NASCAR tracks in droves. Why? Because Toyota will be racing a Japanese built car. Yeah, it's ok to race "American" cars that are built in Mexico and Germany but we sure don't want those Nip cars racing on our beloved NASCAR tracks. What to hell is wrong with people?
The anti-Toyota fans even have their own website.
Many of us are angered by Toyota and their flood of money into out sport. I remember when less than 50,000 people attended a NASCAR race at MIS. Where was Toyota then? It’s a shame that old washed up drivers had to sell out their name to a foreign manufacture because they could never own a team on their own. On top of that, Toyota could never have race teams if they had to just build one like Jack Roush or Richard Childress did with hard work and honest sweat. Some say we have no right to our opinion well to them I say when you look at the American flag remember, unlike Japan, here in the good old USA anyone can speak their mind.Ummm, Article 21 of the Japanese Constitution guarantees freedom of speech. Let's face it, this is an example of Nationalism on the part of American fans.
The real problem is that if Toyota starts winning NASCAR races, even with cars driven by Americans, this hits a certain group right in the gut. Another example of the USA not being #1 in their weak minds.
