IndyCar driver’s want in!

I’m starting to think IndyCar racing is officially the next “stepping stone” to NASCAR.  The latest rumors on the streets are Danica Patrick and now Helio Castroneves are thinking about making the move to NASCAR.  It’s Obvious that NASCAR is the most popular, most televised, and most watched car racing series of all times, and it looks like the big names of IndyCar are starting to realize this.

 If you haven’t noticed, a number of IndyCar racers have already made the move to NASCAR…  Sam Hornish Jr. and Dario Franchitti are two IndyCar champions who have joined the NASCAR world, and it seems as though they aren’t going anywhere.  

My Girl Danica

Wow… Danica Patrick
 Danica Patrick, one of IndyCar’s most famous drivers, just attended the Sprint Cup race in Phoenix this year and there were rumors going around she was thinking about making the move.  It seems as though her contract isn’t going to be coming up until 2009, which means there is a good possibility she could be the next “FACE” of NASCAR.  In my opinion I would welcome her with open arms…  NASCAR is going to be a forever growing sport, and as long as there are a number of different personalities and characters for fans to grab hold of, the sport will continue to grow. 
Helio Castroneves

Helio Castroneves
Helio Castroneves is another IndyCar star that may also make the move over to NASCAR.  If you think about it… it wouldn’t be a hard move for him since he already races for Team Penske which is owned by Roger Penske who already has a three car NASCAR team.   Helio Castroneves is another personality that would come into the NASCAR world and bring more attention to the sport.  If it were up to me, I would welcome all these drivers in with open arms.  I can’t say I would be a big fan of Helio, but I think it’s only going to continue to build our sport and make it a domination.

NASCAR is a sport that will be around forever and is only going to continue to grow.  Big names like Helio Castroneves and Danica Patrick will only help the sport and continue to make it “THE” auto racing sport of the world.  I personally won’t be a supportive fan of these two if they decide to start racing NASCAR but I do think it will bring in different crowds.  Danica will bring in the females and Helio will bring in the South American support which will make it a more world wide sport. 

The good thing is… if these two decide to start racing NASCAR, I am guaranteed not to see any of them out at the bars.  Danica would probably be at a fancy club drinking Martinis or Cosmopolitans, and Helio would probably be at a Ballroom dancing with Jeff Gordon.

What are your thoughts?  Are you for or against IndyCar racers trying to join the group?

    Danica is having a great Indy season. The way all the other Indy drivers are doing in the NASCAR circuit, who knows how she would do. In my opinion, I definately wouldnt mind seeing her around the track every Sunday.

  2. John5@ says:

    If she comes to nascar I will definitely join the fan club. it seems like each photo i see of her the clothes come more an dmore off.

    and i have no idea who the helo guy is, could be a rat for all i know

  3. Craig says:

    Danica needs to win a few more Indy race’s to think about a move.
    All the open wheel guys are finding out it is not as easy as they thought.
    Juan is still working on finding the right setup. Maybe if he was in a Gibbs or Hendrick car!

  4. Ryan says:

    Helio is actually a great Indy car driver. He is number one in points for the circuit. If he could get some seat time in a NASCAR, he might be a force to be reckon with as well.

  5. Tim Zaegel says:

    I would love to see Danica step into the NASCAR ranks, because more than anything, I’d just like to see how it all played out.

  6. John5@ says:

    Any of you guys have **any idea how pretty she would be?*** who wouldnt wnat to just see her **walking around the pits**

    you know she’d be running around **causing drama**

    “Helio would probably be at a Ballroom dancing with Jeff Gordon”.
    You got that right RON!!!!

  8. Kitten says:

    I’d be all for Danica to join NASCAR! We need a woman driver in NASCAR (unless your one of those people that actually considered Erin Crocker one…)

  9. Ron Ripple says:

    Haha… love the Erin Crocker joke. Yeah she and Ray Evernham were TIGHT!

    Danica would set a new standard.

  10. I doubt Helio Castroneves will make the move. Honestly I think Dario making the move to nascar was a real bad decision. I think they should fire Dario, and bring Stremme back into the car. I was really enjoying the run Stremme had at Talladega, and was hoping he would finish in the top 5 or even win the race!

  11. Kathleen says:

    Danica got ROBBED with a capital R. I wish they had allowed her to go down there and take his head off! That was such a shame!!! Idiot male driver………….Sorry Ron
