It looks like the next battle in the Muscle Car Wars (patent pending) will be on the oval tracks of Nascar's Busch Series. The race-loving kids over at SpeedTV tell us the next-generation of series cars will be Chevrolet Camaros, Dodge Challengers, Ford Mustangs and an "as-yet-to-be named Toyota model." It's all part of an attempt by Nascar to distinguish the big league Nextel Cup league from the not-quite-as-big Busch league and get people to quit calling them "Cup Lite." Since they're sponsored by Busch, they'd much rather be called "Busch Lite." Hehe — alcohol and racing jokes are funny. [via SpeedTV]

@B:

But that's a good thing. Racing improves the breed. If Ford is beating the Chebbies and Mopars, won't there soon appear better Camaros and Challengers?

Further, think of the hero this will make of the the young hotshoe underdog who is able to put the "known slower" car on the podium.

This might make me pay attention to a NASCAR race for the first time in about 20 years.

Come on France family, let's see a return to stock bodies-in-white as the basis for this series.
