Look for NASCAR to ensure no Sprint Cup driver races in Vegas
Richard Petty said former open wheel standout A.J. Allmendinger, currently driver of his No. 43 Ford in Sprint Cup, can vie for the $5 million bounty on a win in the IndyCar finale at Las Vegas by a non-series driver if he wants. Sort of. The Vegas race would be run the day after a Chase for the Championship Sprint Cup event at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

"That'd be his call," Petty said. "Comes down to end of deal, we'll be looking where we're at in points and Chase. Lot of decisions made around there."

But if Allmendinger, who is currently ninth in points, makes the cut ...

"We'd want him not to, and he wouldn't want to," Petty said. "The odds of winning (the Las Vegas race) are pretty slim."

Allmendinger won five of 13 races entered in his final Champ Car season in 2006 before undertaking NASCAR. SI.com

[Editor's Note:  With the risk the NASCAR drivers might get their pants beat look for NASCAR to squash any attempt at a Sprint Cup driver from doing it.  Their TV announcers blab every week on TV that their drivers are the "greatest drivers in the world."  Prove it.]
