Not the best move by Toyota. Any way you speculate why they went after that part, makes toyota look like they know they are out classed.... by a ford.

Kinda like what Toyota did with the magic sauce in Michael Waltrip'* intake manifold last year.

Cheating on a whole new level.

He represents Toyota.

If this one turns out to be MWR again, Toyota WILL dump him. I gaurantee it. And good luck going back to Dodge with that reputation.

UPDATE 2: Toyota officials on Wednesday identified the Roush Fenway Racing part that owner Jack Roush said was found in a Toyota team'* possession during a Sprint Cup post-race teardown as a spring. Jim Aust, the president and chief executive officer of Toyota Racing Development, said once the part was found to belong to RFR that it was returned. He was uncertain how the part, discovered on a table with other Toyota parts, got there or from which team it came. "I don't understand the whole procedure when a teardown happens," said Aust, referring to a post-race process in which several cars are broken down by NASCAR inspectors. "The only thing I know is it wound up with parts we had and [which were] returned to Roush. "It'* unfortunate it happened the way it did. It wasn't anything intentional. There'* no reason to be done intentional. I have no idea how it happened to begin with." Roush Fenway president Geoff Smith said the part in question was not a spring, but he would not elaborate. No one at RFR has identified which Toyota team had the part. "Jack is the only one to talk to at this time and he presently doesn't want to make any additional comments," Smith said.(ESPN.com)(3-26-200
