    "An absolute factor," Penske said in a statement Monday. "As it became clear that Toyota was re-allocating its resources (to NASCAR), we had to look beyond 2006 and make the best decision for our future.
    Emphasis mine.

        Hondas for Ganassi, then?

          The move will allow the organization to consolidate its stock-car, Indy-car and sports-car teams in the 424,000-square-foot facility Roger Penske opened last year in the Charlotte suburb.
          That place must be huge.

          Does this mean that the Borg Warner and the IRL championship stands a good chance of being in Charlotte next year?

            You know, he was the only one talking about F1... I've yet to see a quote where F1 was talking about Wheldon.

            Starting to sound like a bargaining tactic.

              For years NASCAR was too Southern-centric - there is percieved notion of the IRL being too midwestern-centric.

              I think this is a good idea for Penske regarding costs and, for nothing else, cross promotion and potential new clients/sponsors.

              Big from me.

                              About 15 acres under roof.... the NASCAR program uses about half of the facility.
