Probably a repost but..

I don't watch racing at all. I watched it off and on in the 80's, but never regularly. Now I just catch bits and pieces of racing news on ESPN. My hubby turned the race on today and I glanced at the screen. I must say... it's a sad day in NASCAR when a Chevy has to follow a Toyota around the track. That is all.

You do realize that Nascar has featured bigger wings than just about any ricer you'll see on the road today:

The difference is, theirs had a purpose. Thus, according to the ricer handbook would not make the kings car a ricer.

That is not a coincidence, it was modelled after that race car. The driver of that car (Richard Petty) also voiced Strip Weathers. Both are also known by the nickname "The King"
