Why are all links to Winston Cup redirected here? Especially since there is no info prior to 2004 here. This smells bad. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:50, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Makes missing from list of manufacturers
Apart from a format error in the table, the total number of championships per manufacturer somehow seems to be wrong (after doing some research). Should there be corrections? ikarus280 (talk) 02:37, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
Edit: I've done some calculations and the manufacturers' championship numbers in the table neither comply with the manufacturers' champion numbers nor with the models the champions drove. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ikarus280 (talk • contribs) 03:42, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
Engine specs nonsensical
specs for seemingly the same block at the end of the page mentions fuel injection as the fuel delivery system, then goes on to mention carbeurator size. i think this should be split into two sections, one for the older carbeurated engines, and one for the newer fuel injection engines. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:17, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Manufacturer representation: Oldsmobile Cutlass
Article lists General Motors' Oldsmobile Cutlass/Cutlass Supreme being used by NASCAR from 1976-1994.
I viewed a DVD entitled "1969 & 1970 Grand National Highlights" and saw a 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass on a road course. Further on-line research showed at http://www.racing-reference.info/race/1970_Motor_Trend_500/W that Jerry Oliver raced a 1970 Oldsmobile at the 1970 Motor Trend 500 in Riverside, California, & Steve Froines raced a 1968 Oldsmobile also at that race.
At http://www.driveraverages.com/nascar_stats/driveryear.php?drv_id=3783&yr_id=1970; it lists Don Simkins racing a Cutlass at Riverside in June 1970. This link is to a picture of Don Simkin's Cutlass, #68, which he raced at Riverside according to the driveraverages link. Oldsmobile Cutlass #68 Don Simkins
