Of course, even with lack of interest looking like the cause, questions abound as to how committed Dodge really was to its NASCAR program. Dodge spends less than any other carmaker in the series, and parent company Fiat
is said to be less than 100% committed to stock car racing, preferring to focus its energies on Formula One with its Ferrari
division. The Lancia, Maserati
and Fiat brands all used to compete in various forms, but don't currently participate in series like Le Mans, Indy, the World Rally Championship or any of the touring car series its competitors challenge.
