    That is why, I said and I quote "I am not taking anything away from Martin",  meaning, he still had to do his part and drive the race car , and go out and win those races. 
    Yes, it was sad to see Matt drive off into the sunset of what was most likely his last NASCAR race.

    Kevin's Mobil One Ford

    Kevin Harvicks Mobil One Ford, Powerslide decals  and ones that I printed out myself( all the Mobil One), Tamiya paint, TS26/Bright Red lowered the ride height, added fuel lines, adjustment bolts, plug wires, did the low DF spoiler, added a few of the missing roll bars and the front splitter and the dummy bumper camera pod.

    Right, Toyota is the only manufacture that supplies NASCAR teams with engines. There is only one engine builder outside of TRD that builds for Toyota and that is Triad Engines, and they provide all the engines for the not factory supported Toyota teams that run in the three top series.
    Roush-Yates is the only supplier of Ford Engines, and then you have Hendrick and ECR as the top two Chevy engine builders.
    I am not taking anything away from Martin and the FRR team, but they get a lot of support from JGR, at one point it was whole race cars,  and lets forget they even get their pit crews from JGR.  Lets make no mistake, with out all that help, they would not be the 2017 Champ.
     
    With all that said,  I am very happy for Martin the FRR team, they did a hell of job and was the best team for 2017, they earned the Monster Energy Cup Championship.

    When she started in NASCAR, she was driving for Jr Motorsports in the Nationwide series( which gets support from HMS) she went part time in the Cup Series in 2011 driving part time for joint venture between Tommy Bladwin Racing and SHR .  WHat that means is SHR was providing the cars/engines/support to Tommy Bladwin Racing for when Danica was in the car, but it was all SHR , but for the paper work on NASCAR's side, it was TBR that owned the car.
    You might of been talking about her entire NASCAR career, I was talking about just her Cup part .

    What are you talking about ?,  when SHR was with Chevy, all their chassis's and engines , R&D and everything else came from HMS, so for a Chevy team you dont get much better than HMS during the their time with Chevy,  unless you go over to Toyota.  SHR was off this year because it was the first year as  Ford team, so they were not on point as they were for 2016,   she is what she is, a 25th place driver, nothing more, nothing less,  she had the equipment to be front runner.
    I am just commenting on the equipment side, not the personal side.

    Her entire NASCAR Cup career has been with SHR( Stewart HAAS Racing)

    Thanks Bill,  I have to say, the detail is on par if not better in some areas then the last NASCAR kits Revell did  , these are very nice kits,  I did not cover the entire kit because I did that on the Fords, so have a look
