Default Toyota in Busch in 2006? in Cup in 2007?

Rumblings in the garage have Toyota testing the Busch Series waters next season before jumping to Cup in 2007, the first year all teams could be running NASCAR's new engines. Those engines will be constructed on common platforms but still will maintain manufacturer identities. Toyota's possible entry into the Busch Series also might accelerate the learning curve for Honda, which could be racing in the truck series as early as 2006. The Big Three U.S. automakers have expressed concern that if Toyota and Honda are given the specifications of this new engine now, the Nextel Cup Series soon could resemble the IndyCar series, meaning Detroit would be severely outspent and unable to compete.[:@][:'(][>:]

I got mixed feelings about this, but my gut feeling is that they souldn't be allowed.[&:]
Do you know that in some other countries they don't even want american car on their roads. Some that do allow them, its only just because they have too, if they want to sale their cars here.

Im not sure about that one. Toyota said before that they wanted to win a few truck championships before they move up to Busch and Cup.
Cctxfish, why shouldnt we allow them? Its not like they are the only import. Dodge is no longer an American company. They are owned by the German and are part of Daimler-Chrysler.
I dont think that NASCAR will end up like Indy car racing. I dont think that the powers that be in NASCAR will allow that to happen. I also think that Toyota will find it difficult to repeat the same success they have had in the truck series. In the truck series, Toyota pretty much has all the best veteran drivers. In Cup I think they will have a hard time being dominant aganst DEI, Hendrick and Roush.
