There are no Toyotas in Nextel Cup(Yet). Dodge did good in qualifing. Lets see if they finish the job. My boys starting 29th. It will be interesting to see how many tires blow in the race. The winner will be the one with the most balanced car. Some guys will start fast and fade quickly as the tires wear.

Now we know why.

Suspect Noses? Evernham Motorsports Dodges qualified first [#9], sixth [#19] and 10th [#91] at Las Vegas, and other teams were suspicious about what advantage the Evernham crews had found. Rival manufacturers took pictures of the noses to examine the changes. The competitors discovered the noses were designed to offer greater downforce in the front and rear. "It's totally legit," one competitor says. "It's so simple it makes you mad that you didn't come up with it." Although the Evernham cars were constructed completely within the rules, chances are NASCAR will develop a new body template that defines that nose area.(FoxSports/Sporting News), while walking along pitroad before the race, the #9 and #19 cars had the noses/grill area coveredd up and didn't remove the covers until after the two cars fired up and just before the left pitroad.(3-8-2004)


Aero advantage at work.


Those lights do look like the 300M lights.

4 in the top 10, 8 in the top twenty. Not a bad day.

If two more cars ran out of gas old Kyle Petty would have been 10th. 12th's not too bad for him.
