        Just another opportunity to see Hemis with Chevy, Ford, or Toyota on the valve covers. I doubt they'll be taking the Mopar sponsorship with them.

          I hope Tony doesn’t have to fire Leah for bad lights. She’s been known to do that.

          Stewart-Haas runs Fords in NASCAR.
          I believe the TSR World of Outlaws sprint car is also Ford-powered.
          The NHRA team is setup under the TSR (Tony Stewart Racing) so may be able to run a different manufacturer body in Funny Car. I'd still prefer to see Dodge bodies on Hagan's Funny Car and MOPAR lettering on Leah's Top Fuel car.
          Going to be interesting to see how this all plays out.

            I'm sure Dodge will be throwing money Leah's way to keep her in a Dodge

            It's no surprise Leah went to TSR. I wonder what pulled Hagan away from DSR? I wonder if Leah will still race the Challenger in FSS?

            Heck I just read yesterday DSR was going to run 3 TFers next year. Now Leah has flown the coop?
