I am no Dodge fan but at the same time I don't think losing one of just 4 manufacturers with cars in a series is a good thing.

They didn't want to sign a 5yr contract with Penske, So Penske is going to Ford.

Always remember that your final destination... is the same as everyone elses.

From what I understand, Fiat didn't want to be in the NASCAR circuit. Since they own Chrysler, Dodge gets ousted.

With the new redesigns coming for the next season, none of the cars will share more than 10% of body panels and design (at least from what I have read). I've been waiting for NASCAR to get closer to 'stock car' racing forever now. I'm excited to see how this is going to work out.

I still don't quite understand Chevy's new Sprint Cup car, the Chevy _____ SS...? There needs to be something between Chevy and SS if you ask me.
Nationwide is going to the Camaro.

Buh Bye Dodge..wonder how Petty is taking this?

Rockin my Bowtie everywhere I can!

That would be awesome if stock car racing started using stock cars again, but the manufacturers would really have to step up their game for that. Today's cars wouldn't last more than a couple laps. Could you imagine? How many transmissions would Chevy use in a single race?

1978 Caprice Classic Landau
350 2-bolt, stock 4bbl
Stock rebuilt TH350
Edelbrock performer cam + intake
Dual 2 1/2" Flowmaster exhuast (waiting to be installed)

4 wheel disc brakes!

Not many transmissions would be lost...if they partnered with Hendrick. When the 88 lost 3rd & 4th last week it was the first mechanical failure for the team in a while. They've had a really good season.

All in all, they would definitely have to step it up. If they did, I'm sure their sales numbers would reflect it. I may not have waited so long to buy my new Chevy had the production SS been half of what the Sprint Cup car is. I ended up with the LTZ just to avoid the tranny issues...which I guess takes this post full circle

Fiat is big into Rally racing. Maybe we can see a big "American" showing with the F**d Fiesta and Alfa Romeo Giulietta... err I mean Dodge Dart. Maybe Chevy can even get into Rally with a Rally edition Aveo.

I did laugh as I typed that. Seriously though, maybe a Sonic in Rally wear. Put a turbo charged ecotec or whatever is the current 4 banger in it and an awd trans. Could be cool.

I don't see dodge leaving as major or minor problem.
Wasn't like they won much as of late anyways.
And by as of late I mean since Richard Petty, lol.
