Ford Truck Wins Daytona!

This might not be the correct forum, but congrats to Mark Martin for his win at Daytona in the truck race tonight!

Yes, the Ford vs the competition is the perfect place to post Ford spanks the competition.


I hope Mark finally gets the Cup Championship he deserves. Has he finished in 2nd place four times, I believe.

Kep,

Mark is a class act and deserves all the best. He is also a GREAT spokesman for Ford!

I am just glad it finished under caution. I feel those Toyota's would have eaten him alive if they kept green.

BoxCar,

Yep, the caution played right into Mark's hands. Like I said on another forum, a win is win, no matter that another flag may be waving with the checkered one. Some of my favorite Ford drivers have lost before with a caution/finish, so the shoe fits either foot. For tomorrow's race (The 500), I would love to see a Ford victory, but my main thoughts, hopes and prayers are for a SAFE race.

UPDATE:

Martin wins again, Toyota, GM and Dodge thankful that he is not running the full schedule. Mark hung tough last night and won, without the benefit of finishing under caution. Hey, when you're hot, you're HOT!!! That strange sound being heard at Calif. is the combined whining of the other truck-makers...

Yep, and he did it under a green flag and with 5 toys following, the two directly behind were team mates. Guess it doesn't matter if it finishes under a yellow or a green, the Ford took all the kahuna's and the toys didn't "eat him alive" as some may have thought!?!

Same motor as a cup car 750-800 hp 358ci Roush or Yates Ford motor and I think they run a 850cfm carb. As for the Musgrave deal, if my memory serves me correct Ford wasn't going to ante up as much as dodge in factory support so the owner decided to go with toy. I think that's it in a nutshell!

Anybody on here ever watch CORR (Championship Off-Road Racing)? They're getting ready to run there next season and it will be televised on Speed. A Ford guy started that series several years ago, but most makes are in it (Ford, chevy, nissan, and toy's, no dodges that I'm aware of though).

Now that's "real" racing, and nothing like these sugar-coated gmna$car "entertainment events" where the actual racing has taken a back seat to the big money, interviews, glitz, glimmer, etc. of several chevy drivers.

As for WRC World Rally, which ran on Speed last year, I'm not sure where they're being televised this year. Anyone got a clue!?!

BTW Ford teams, specifically Roush Fords, took all three gmna$car series (cup, busch, and trucks) with a win this past weekend at Cali Even though gmna$car favors chevy, they can't keep them Fords down.

Yep, I imagine that the GM and Mopar teams will be doing some serious whining about FORD's winning ways at Fontana!

Mark is awesome. Very good mannored fella. Speaks his mind when he needs to, yet he knows when to shut up. Very good driver also.


How do ya'll like those Roush Yates Fords? I think they run 360 blocks too dont they? Nevertheless, if it wasn't for the Ford 9 inch rear end, none of those trucks or race cars would be goin anywhere!

Back before Roush and Yates merged, I was able to tour the Yates engine plant and I met Doug and Robert. Then I had breakfast/lunch with Robert in his motorhome at the Talladega track. Very nice and professional group of people.
