One thing I heard is that the "FR9" does not retain any of the original production 351 dimensions as the current model.

Not a good showing so far in first practice the #6 car is 29th, and the #17 is 32nd. Hope they get better in the next session.

They should lower the compression, add fuel injection, and install that motor in the 2011 Mustang. I'd buy one .

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

Just remember,any more,Talladega is the worst place to gauge any kind of performance.It's also gettin to be one of the most boring races.I think it was jackass oops I mean junior,on the the radio during the race,asking if someone would talk to him to keep him awake!It is really a shame what they have done to "stock car" racing.Go back to the 60's early 70's before the rules were changed in GM's favor,chevy's were just a footnote.FORD and mopar ruled.Something has to be said about the fact that Fords nascar motors have been based on an actual production engine,and stayed competitive,against purpose built race engines!

I just listened to bits/pieces of the race today but,sounded like the new motor in Kenseths car was doing good for the first outing. Did'nt hear the end of it,shut off radio after the wreck w/5 to go. Had a garage to tidy up

Jamie McMurray won with a Ford Fusion and led quite a few laps at the end.That wreck that Ryan Newman had looked pretty nasty had to cut the roof off to get him out.

Later Mark.

I also think it says something about Ford engines that they were still running production based engines. Chevy has had at least three since 1998. Now they all are running Cleveland copies with larger bore spacing..........
