Stick-on headlights and a Charger sticker do not make the NASCAR racecar resemble the street car. NASCAR has become less about the "race on Sunday, sell on Monday" mentality and more on the "sell Pepsi, Coke, Gillette, Tide, Lowes, Home Depot, etc". The automaker gets lost in the product shuffle, which makes it hard to justify the millions spent each year in the series. Plus who is excited about a racing Taurus? The millions spent on NASCAR could be better spent elsewhere, especially for GM and Ford. Though in a few years we may be rooting for the racing Camry. That may make GM, Ford and Dodge spend even more in the racing series. Woo-hoo!
