Toyota caught cheating big time

Toyota caught cheating before they even raced their 1st race. M Waltrip number 55 car had 3 rules broken. Had motor parts and the car taken away. Lost the crew chef for looks of it. For most of the season the vice pres also injected from the race track. M Waltrip Lost 100 race points and 100 owner points Fined $100.000 dollars, Loss of qualifying spot. Now he has to race his way in the Daytona 500. Thats one Camry we don't have to worry about this race or the season for that matter . GREAT JOB TOYOTA. Like they said on speed Channel Toyota makes the motors and gives them to the teams. And they set them up. The crew chefs and Tech do very little but install them in the car. So Toyota Corp knew about what was happing . Wasn't like the Dodge or the Ford teams fined because where some tape came off. Welcome to NASCAR Toyota

The issue seems to be a jet fuel like substance in the intake manifold. According to Waltrip, that was done by an unknown individual on the team. Not done by Toyota.

But Toyota should have known there would be a double standard. If the same incident would have happened with another manufacturer, no one would be blaming the manufacturer. But since it was Toyota, the floodgates open.

Besides, the reason why a lot of true car enthusiasts don't like NASCAR is cause the sport is so homogenous. EVERYTHING has to be the same on all cars. How boring is that? Then all they do is drive around in a damn circle. So what do they do? They go out of their way to pick on things like rivet holes in wheelwells or missing pieces of tape.

My suggestion to NASCAR: If you're so bent on homogenous race cars, why not just get rid of all manufacturers altogether and just have a standard body and a standard engine? That way, you can cash in on all the licensing as well.
