Very cool.....and maybe RG can be in one.....well, I sure hope!!!
I am hoping he does too, the Indy series is good but the cookie cutter cars are not good.  They need to switch it up and add different configurations.  Whatever Robby drives he will push to the limit
A turbo 2.8-liter V6 is currently available in the Cadillac SRX. GM is also developing a twin-turbo 3.0L for the 2012 XTS model. Ford offers a optional 3.5L twin-turbo V-6 in the 2011 F150 truck. Porsche (/Audi/VW) is also planning to release a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 for the Panamerica model.

Since the base platform is already or soon will be in production by 2012, could GM's announcement spur other manufacturers to take another look at open-wheel? One can only hope.
Cant help but wonder how an app like that would work in the Hummers. Would it swing the ASO regs in our favor?
Prolly nowhere near enought torque, for some of those hills...hmm
sidenote to splat: check the tags...writing's on the wall
