Do you think it would make for better racing across the board? I think it would certainly be more competitive racing, so I guess I would say yes.

I got you. I was thinking about NO support. Let them build them from scratch and go from there. It might be worse, it might not. I just thought it would be fun to argue about!LOL

Some IRL teams get manufacturer support, thats why the same teams win over and over again.

So we need to be like F1 where there is one manufacturer giving support to the elite, or like F1 where there are 8 different manufacturers? Which one?

if you do that then the haves and Have nots would be even fartehr apart a better solution would be NASCAR regulate how much support they can provide and say that it must be divided equally among the teams that race that manufacturer. That would help even things up.

Its hard to say, how would they be farther apart? From my understanding, Ford for example, for the most part doesnt help anyone but Roush.

How exactly would that be regulated? I'm not sure how NASCAR could possibly monitor the flow of cash, parts and technology from manufacturers to teams, much less the flow of information and knowledge. In the `60s and `70s, many teams received factory support "under the table," even as certain manufacturers claimed to be officially out of the sport.

It seems like an enforcement nightmare, to me.

Did anyone hear Poole this week talk about his trip to HMS? How he talked about all the parts they get from overseas? That's just crazy. All the money they spend just on parts must be out of this world...:shock:

First they would have to figure out what parts need to me manufactured overseas. Then they would have to send someone over there to see if they could do it. Then they'd have to make the machines that would make the part. I must cost millions just to make a part and have it shipped to the USA.

Then what happeneds if there's a rule change and they can't use that part anymore? All that money just went down the drain.

Factory support could go away and teams like HMS, Roush-Fenway, JGR, would still be the best teams in the business. They have to people and money in place to be winners...:)

Yea, I think your right about the top 3 or 4 teams. But would it shake up the rest you think? I think it would be interesting, but I certainly would hate to see it.
