Toyotas were down on power vs the BMW diesel torque. I know they all need to run production engines now and the Mitsubishi's have the 5 liter ford engines, I think they'll outrun the Toyos.
BMW and Hummers for top3 spots. Mitsubishi and a first truck to fill the top ten. Plus a buggy for good measure. All Toyotas to burn out by rest day.
I agree with you that the Toyotas are not the fastest vehicles on the race and will never win a flat out drag race.
However, if you are a gambling man, you gonna lose money with that last statement!!!
