Villeneuve to NASCAR too?

We all know he had said that NASCAR wasn't a bad career move for Montoya. Of course its all rumors at this point, but its been heard by ESPN and TSN Canada. What up on all the washed up F1 guys landing in NASCAR?

I suppose it also means that when NASCAR hits the couple of road circuits Jeff Gordon won't be the only dominant driver anymore.

If they're successful, I'm sure they could keep making some big bucks.

Don't forget though Scion, Gordon isn't the only Nascar driver who has racing skill in other motorsports.

Here's hoping Jacques and Juan Pablo clean up. I suppose a F1 fan such as me that hates NASCAR can have NASCAR orientations. + It will be funny to hear the names Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, and all the other WASPy names besides Montoya and VIlleneuve in the standings. Hahahah.

Not really, NASCAR has about 35 races per season plus testing.

I remember Jaques saying once, that if he wasnt racing in F1 than he wasnt interested in racing at all, because he considered it the pinacle of motorsports and he only wanted to race with the very best. Seems like someone's standards have somewhat lessened over the years...

Good for JV if he gets in, but i'd rather see him do something like DTM or sports cars.

I'd rather see JV in ALMS where what is left of his career could be spent in something worthwhile.

It'll be like Talladega Nights but with a straight Frenchman (French Canadian that is, that happens to live in Switzerland a lot)
