NASCAR Winston Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon and Formula 1 star Juan Pablo Montoya are to switch cars at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on June 11. The pair will drive the Indianapolis road course having switched seats: Gordon having his first taste of F1 and Montoya trying out NASCAR in Gordon's DuPont Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

"The experience will be very interesting, and driving a big, heavy NASCAR car will certainly be different," says Montoya. "I don't think Jeff should be concerned that I will take away his job, but I will enjoy the opportunity of driving his Chevrolet and letting him take my BMW WilliamsF1 Team car for a drive on Indy's road course."
