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.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
