Montoya to drive NASCAR?
Gordon is the sport's biggest star in the US, bigger these days than all the Andrettis and Unsers who ruled the roost in the days before the split between CART and the Indy Racing League. While the two open-wheeler series have hurt one another, NASCAR has continued to grow at an impressive pace.
Cross-promotional schemes have been tried before on occasion with rally drivers and motorcycle racers trying out F1 machinery and vice-versa but none of them have ever made any real impact, although one or two of the cars have been crashed!
