Potentially, but there are guidelines and rules that all 'stock' cars gotta follow. Namely, pushrod carbureted V8'*... hey, Toyota made a pushrod V8 (though not necessarily in North America) from 1963-1998

I don't follow NASCAR myself, nor do I intend to with Toyota'* new involvement.

Anymore, the only difference between the cars is the front clip and the "taillights" on the rear.
Chances are the teams that run the new cars will make the motors, not Toyota itself.

for clarifaction, the engines are produced by chevy, ford, dodge, (pontiac used to), ect. They all have about the same HP though. Some of the parts are regulated. The rest of the engine building and tuning is up to the shop. There are also body package rules to keep all the cars about the same.

toyota has been in the Nascar Trucks series for a while. Have all of yall missed the hilarious Darrell Waltrip (DW) comericals? You have got to be kidding me.

The engines are produced by the respective manufacturers? I had been under the impression that the only thing they got from the manufacturers were the machined castings.

Be that as it may, NASCAR is the only sport that requires two balls to play.
