Look like Gibbs is giving up having their own engine department.

Not sure if this Gibbs is gearing down.

TRD is gearing up and needs Gibbs help to get the rest of Toyota's up to par.

Gibbs will see some of thier engines come out of TRD towards the end season but tis is mostly for next year.

The articles that I read made it seem like TRD was a little ahead of the curve and it would be to the benefit of Gibbs.

Or with NASCAR going FI in 2012 ... Gibbs feel Toyota / TRD has the engineers for it?


... Half of Gibbs engine department ... getting Pink Slips ;(

... And TRD engines are only in 5 cars now ; MWR #00, #56, JTG Daugherty Racing #47, and Red Bull #4, #83, which Who knows for next year ...

The rest of the TOYs #13, #87, SnP, use Triad Racing Technologies engines ...

I don't want to upset k, but I'd trust TRD. They've built some great engines and race cars!
