While Paul Tracy may be concentrating 100% on making the Indianapolis 500 this month, the Canadian racing icon also is in talks to compete in the NASCAR Nationwide Series NAPA 200 at Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on Aug. 20.

Tracy has signed on with TopSpeed Management to pursue getting the 2003 Champ Car World Series champion a ride in the Nationwide Series’ lone Canadian stop this season.

It is believed Tracy is negotiating with Penske Racing — the NNS championship Dodge team from 2010 — for a ride in Montreal.

Talks are also ongoing with RAB Racing, the same team that won last year’s NAPA 200 with Boris Said behind he wheel of the No. 09 Toyota.

“We are actively seeking a top Canadian company to come on board with Paul for the Montreal Nationwide race,” Brian Marks, CEO of TopSpeed said in a recent interview.

Tracy has a five race deal in the IZOD IndyCar Series with Dragon Racing — owned by Jay Penske — and will attempt to qualify for the Indy 500 for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing.
