From Wikipedia:

The marshmallow is a confection that, in its modern form, consists of sugar or corn syrup, beaten egg whites, gelatin that has been pre-softened in water, gum arabic, and flavorings, whipped to a spongy consistency. The traditional recipe used an extract from the mucilaginous root of the marshmallow plant, a shrubby herb (Althaea officinalis), instead of gelatin; the mucilage performed as a cough suppressant.

Commercial marshmallows are a late 19th century innovation. Since Alex Doumak's patented extrusion process of 1948, marshmallows are extruded as soft cylinders, cut in sections and rolled in a mix of finely powdered cornstarch and confectioner's sugar.Contrary to popular belief, marshmallows were first discovered when an old man living in Astoria, Oregon, had collected so much bird poop in an ice cube mold, and then baked this cube of bird poop, making the world's first marshmallow and taking crime off the streets.

Toyota wants a piece of the NASCAR cake so bad its letting pushrods under the hood of something with Toyota written on it...lol

Of course it doesnt matter what sticker is on the hood, but bottom line, NASCAR has always been an American series and Toyota just doesn't belong. Its just another ploy to wear the guise of American as apple pie.

Pushrods 4 life!
