and the BB Chevy is a tough package to beat. At the EMC we are usually working with an unbiased set of rules (this past year was an unintended exception) and entries compete cubic inch against cubic inch, engine family against engine family.
In a dozen years we have had FE entries finish both ahead of and behind the BB Chevy entries. Some of those folks have more talent and greater resources than I do - but all of them are working very, very hard to field a competitive effort. I think we've acquitted ourselves well over the years, but the BB Chevy platform has done something I never have - they have won the darn thing.
