Helio Castroneves, IndyCar driver and man with some magic feet has told the Los Angeles Times that he is considering making the big move to NASCAR. Castroneves is a two-time Indy 500 winner and regarded as one of the more popular, and well known, IndyCar drivers. If Castroneves does make the move, he will join the likes of Sam Hornish, Dario Franchitti and Juan Pablo Montoya, all who've moved from open-wheel racing to stock car racing and tried to get people to believe they were hitting that. Wait, just the first part.
It wouldn't be too big of a jump as Castroneves' Team Penske also has three cars in the NASCAR Sprint Cup, but then again, Castroneves' contract with Penske is up at the end of this season. Whether its for glory or personal curiosity, Castroneves leaving IndyCar could harm open-wheel motorsport. Aside from Danica Patrick, Castroneves is one of the more popular drivers. Nothing has been set in stone, but Castroneves is definitely considering the move. [ESPN] (Image via Getty)
