Enzo was the son of a grocer with little formal education, in 1960 Ferrari was making 300 cars a year

Because the blind loyalty of the market and protectionism by the government have made American cars a constant stream of horrid shit following the initial post-war boom and surge in quality. That American cars have been horrid from the beginning of the 70s all the way through the 90s and even up until the bailouts is a fact, but even when you think they've gotten their shit together nowadays they will still prove you wrong soon afterwards.

Many successful American race cars were campaigned by non American teams, and still are, safe to say they "take them seriously" (as did the opponents losing to them). Unfortunately average non Americans (like you) aren't able to participate in amateur motorsports like Americans are, so I can't blame you for not knowing anything about racing history.

Enough said, that's the goal of racing, to win within the constraints of the rules, pretty simple concept.
