By rule, NASCAR is limited to "American" manufacturers. Don't know exactly how they define that though, seeing as how Daimler/Chrysler/Dodge is welcome. I think the closest BMW will come to NASCAR is continuing to supply the pace car at the Glen as long as Sirius sponsors the race.

i think this is innacurate info. do you not recall the early seventies when the 911 porche was in theer? if they let porches in i'm sure a beemer sedan would be legal.

It's amazing the nascar bashing here:thumbdwn: :thumbdwn:Bimmer? said:
By the way . . . **** NASCAR! You will Never see a German Engineered Car in that Circus or American Hick Cars: fords
i agree, and i also think any bashing of nascar as low skill driving is a little inaccurate. going almost 200 mph constantly 6 inches from every other car requires some skill... yeah it's one long left turn, but stillDougDogs said:

maybe 10-20 years ago it was a circus, but today there is nothing "stock" about a stock car. Millions of dollars are invested in r/d of today's top teams. The only thing they are possibly behind in is electronic engine/fuel management, but thier rules dictate that. I've walked in Busch and WC garages, and these crews are working with top stuff.
I'm not trying to compare them with F1, but you can no longer laugh at the moneys that are generated, and spent, by this form of racing. Their silly restrictor plate races are the only races where they can "keep WOT and turn left"
Sure, their announcer's leave a lot to be desired...but these are no slouch drivers or cars anymore.
I can understand completely if it is not your favorite form of racing....but it has come a long way
