So much for the Fords being at a disadvantage on the mile and a half tracks. Blaney, Harvick and Kurt Busch qualified 1, 2 & 3 with Ford taking eight of the top twelve spots. All three Penske cars, three out of the four SHR cars, the Wood Brothers car and one Roush car all made it to the final round.


My current rides:
07 Sport Trac Limited 4x4 V8
99 Mustang Cobra (Roush Body Kit)
75 Bronco (393 Windsor, NV3550 5-speed)
70 Mustang Mach 1 (428 CJ, 4-speed)
68 Cougar (390 GT, C6)
67 Ranchero (460, C6, Pro Street)

I say give it time. I think the Toyotas are sand bagging, like last year when they started winning in the latter half of the season. Especially after Brad complained Fords would be at a disadvantage against the Toyotas with the new front end and the Chevy Camaros. The surprise is the Camaros aren't more competitive. Dirty Dillon didn't deserve to win Daytona.

I wish people would move on from Daytona. Aric said he didnt have a problem with what happened, thats all I needed to hear to get over it.

I dont have a problem with it as long as he returns the favor.

Aric said in the immediate aftermath he was cool with it. If in that moment he's saying that then you can be 100% sure there will be no retaliation.

Well Almirola had a Daytona 500 win stolen from him. Those kinds of wins don't grow on trees.

I'm not that big of a person, I'd have been slugging it out on pit road just like they do every Saturday night on short tracks all over the country.

Restrictor plate wreaking is not racing. I'm glad they are at other tracks now.

 

It looked like the only Ford that had anything for the two best Toyotas (Busch and Truex) during the Vegas race was Harvick. Once Larson and his team figure out the new Camaro body they will be the team to beat. He was competitive at Vegas based on sheer driving talent. Overall though I would say no one brand has a major advantage right now. Harvick has been in a class of his own the past two races and could be at Phoenix as well.

Harvick has historically been dominant at Phoenix. It wouldnt shock me if he were to win his 3rd in a row

The big complaint from Chase Elliott now was that Harvick had his rear glass extended different during the race which could have been an advantage. Now the NASCAR evening cable show with Kyle Petty has a special edition with liberal mouth Earnhardt throwing in his opinions. When will that guy ever go away?

Harvick's crew chief said the brace that supports the back window failed. Now whether or not it was designed to fail is another story but you can bet NASCAR will amend the rule book to make sure it doesn't happen again. I also heard one of the talking heads say that it didn't fail until after the 1st stage was over and Harvick dominated the 1st stage as well. Regardless of what the crybabies say he probably would have won the race anyway. I wonder how they won Atlanta without that special aero assist? Must have cheated on something else. Harvick also said that no one ever heard anybody at SHR complaining about the 'Yotas or saying that Ford was at an aero disadvantage. That was only coming from Team Penske and Keselowski.

Just read Harvick failed post inspection. Rear window and using steel side support bar instead of aluminum..which was changed recently by NASCAR. HE LOSES 20 points....but keeps the win.

I agree. Morgan is a good man....and still has the "need for speed" in his mid 70s!
