Castroneves Pondering A Move To NASCAR?

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that two-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves is considering a move to NASCAR.

He said:

I won’t deny that I’m thinking about it. It would be great to one day try the [stock] cars. But at this point I’m focusing on Indy cars and winning the Indianapolis 500 again.

Castroneves currently drives for Team Penske, which fields cars for Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman, and Sam Hornish Jr., Castroneves’ former teammate¬†who recently made the switch from IndyCar to NASCAR.

Castroneves’ contract is up for renewal this season, and he plans to discuss his options with Roger Penske after the Indy 500.

Of note, Penske could field one additional car without breaking the cap NASCAR set on teams.
