After the Nationwide Series race on Saturday in Michigan two Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota cars, the 20 and 18 cars piloted by Tony Stewart and Joey Logano failed post race dyno tests. A magnet was found on the firewall that was limiting the throw of the gas pedal thus hiding the true horsepower that the Toyota Cars were capable of. The magnet was of no mechanical advantage during the race but was an attempt to decieve officials during post race inspection. The JGR Toyotas have been dominate in both series since the start of the season and the other makes have suspected a mechanical advantage. This will definitely put a spotlight on them now. NASCAR has seemed to be in denial when it comes to the Toyotas. Maybe they will pay attention now. I hope they get slammed with fines, points and wins taken away. Though not likely I could only hope!
