    Kahne finished 8th in a toyota in the nationwide series Dollar General 300 last week, why does RLD waste there time on this team anymore? the RPM team is lost and i do not know how they find there way to the track each and every week? i will be glad when dodge pulls the plug on this “NASCIRCUS” as someone else on here called it! if MOPAR has any money left after this year as in budget, i would like to see them put all there ducks into the NHRA and be serious about it, and make the NHRA the series “NASCIRCUS” once was.what do the rest of you guys and gals think?

    NASCAR is not using stock cars so Mopar should spend their money on NHRA. I do not believe anyone is stupid enough to think that the Chevy Impala that Jimmy Johnson runs is the same as the one you would purchase at the dealership. They don’t even look like them. The Charger at least has a gille (sticker) that makes it resemble a Charger. Bottom line, if you don’t have a chance in winning, why continue to look like a loser.

    I don’t know how Kahne can have the morale to run that agressive. With all the B.S. Gillette has been putting on that team since the announcement. If it were me driving, I’d run it into the wall every race.

    Nice going Dodge, letting the Petty’s get away. Kasey had as good a chance leading the chase as anyone, but a couple of fluky things have kept him out and now Dodge let’s them go to Ford. I think it will be a very short time untill Richard and Kasey wish they were back with Dodge. I’ve driven Dodges all my life so far and will keep doing so. I’ve been a NASCAR fan for 45 years and have always liked the way the Dodges have performed. Dodge led the way when NASCAR had to limit what they brought to the track because they were so far ahead of everyone else. DODGE YOU SHOULD HAVE KEPT RICHARD AND KASEY IN THE CAMP and GONE FOR 2010 CHAMPIONSHIP………………..
