CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- NASCAR tried to even out the competition
in the Nationwide Series on Wednesday by ordering all teams using
Toyota motors to squeeze down their horsepower before this
weekend's race in Indianapolis.
Toyota has won 14 of 21 races this season in the Nationwide
Series, and all but one of them came in Camry's fielded by Joe
Gibbs Racing. The exception was JGR driver Kyle Busch's victory at
Charlotte in May in a car fielded by Braun Racing.
NASCAR recently sent 10 different motors for testing, and found
that David Reutimann's Toyota was the best with an estimated 3
percent horsepower advantage over the competition.
