"Just what the NASCAR Cowboys need....an Indian. "

The typical Nascar fan is a dyed-in-the-wool redneck. They hate "furiners". Sly ol' Nascar has figured out that these rednecks will pay dearly to see the dreaded "furiner" get beat on the track. Same logic applies to Toyota being allowed in the Cup series. Rest assured, Nascar will see to it Toyota or a "furiner" never wins the Cup championship.

What makes these guys think they can just go race NASCAR if they want? He better bring a lot of money, and be prepared to not make races. Maybe he should buy a dirt track car and learn how to race on an oval for a few years, then maybe move up to ARCA. If he wins some races there maybe he can fish around for a ride in the trucks. If he's clearly one of the best in the trucks then maybe he'll get some offers from a team from one of the top two divisions in NASCAR. Good luck with that Nicky, we'll look for you on Saturday night at Watsonville speedway.

@ Wood - You are absolutely correct, it is not as simple as alot of people like to think. Especially when it comes to the boring oval racing, those rednecks know what they are doing, where as permanent road courses confuse them.

I love how people judge someone who has driven a low performing car for a season and conclude on his abilities. Show some class people!

to my eyes people like Ralf, Trulli,etc are no better than him.

till this season button is nobody and with a proper car hes champion.

have a happy new year folks.

Predjudice of any kind showes a lack of intelligence in the individual who embraces it! In America the "rednecks" don't pretend to be anything they're not, unlike you who believe (incorrectly!) that you, somehow, are better than they!
By the way Ashley, if you dislike the USA and the people that live here, you should go back to Australia! I'm sure you won't be missed!
