GM Funding

16 posts in this topic

I did'nt want to steal another thread so I will start this one up.

With the news that GM will be cutting funding back and the thought that the JGR left Chevy to go to Toyota.....

Do you guy's think that Gibbs was given some insider info that GM would be cutting it's funding to Nascar teams?

I don't think it was to tough to figure out for Gibbs and everybody else that Yota has a lot more cash to throw away on Racing these days!

Yes I think it was all about the money!

When Honda comes in then you can expect other step-child teams to move to them.

You ahh better not mention that again.... J/K But seriously, we don't need Honda getting involved.

If Honda will pay Baby-France enough money they'll be there soon enough. All he cares about is short term gain without thinking how he's wrecking this great entity long term...

I wouldn't think there was any insider information at the time Gibbs switched. $4/gal gas is probably the biggest contributing factor in the downturn for the auto companies.

I was just wondering if it was used as a lure to get JGR to go with the Toyota's.

I wonder if Kia will pony up some cash and get involved next year? Just kidding.

Also consider that JGR was on the bottom of the totem pole w/ GM

Why would you say that? Besides Hendrick, Gibbs is the only other GM team to win a championship, 3 infact, in the past 10 years. I'd think they'd rank second on the list.

2nd or 3rd does it really matter? JGR would never have got the funding that Hendrick gets.

Now if GM could make some profits on the normal cars they sell.

In the long run I think the whole Toyota deal will force the other teams to improve.

    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
