NASCAR will always throw them (Ford) a drivers championship about every 4 or 5 years, '88, '92, '97.  Next year
Chevy will get a horsepower boost with the SB2 heads and then there will be parity.  In fairness though, it
seems to be only the Roush and Yates teams that have the clear advantage, the other Fords are about where the
Hendricks, Childress teams are.

That's almost a fact; however, Bristol is not a track that places
an emphasis on aerodynamics. The performance of the Chevy's aside
from the #24 has been less than spectacular. The #4 team continues
to be in oblivion since Talladega last year, the #18 is now in a
Pontiac and Labonte is only a top-10 car.

True. However, I blame the "farce" on the Chevy drivers and teams and not
the aerodynamics. Of course Nascar has helped the Fords, but this year
the *** of the #24 car has certainly hurt the other Chevy drivers.

Roush and Yates are *** in the Ford stable. What's wrong with
Penske South? I don't know.

A nice cylinder head next year, but the Ford drivers will be getting their
ugly Taurus next year.

Take a look at the Point standing ... TOP 6 .. 3 Chevy's, 3 Fords ... When was the last time
Ford won the WC Championship?  
The Ford/Chevy arguement has been on-going for years, and shows no sign of letting
up any time soon ... you can make any can of arguement, pro or con, for either car make.
It all depends on what stats you look at.
