IndyCar to lose 2011 Indy 500 winner to NASCAR

Before the St. Pete Honda Grand Prix welcome home party for Dan Wheldon on Tuesday, Wheldon told me he just got a call from a Nationwide Series team about driving for them. Guess what? He’s considering it. Wheldon stressed that Indy Cars are his first love and the team owner wants him to relocate to North Carolina. Wheldon says that would be a problem.

Wheldon says he can be picky as to who he can drive for and it has to be the right situation but he didn’t say no. He’s looking for a full time Indy Car ride next year. Bayview News

[Editor's Note: As it is the Indy 500 winner will not be to any more IndyCar races this year as he has no contract to drive, which is not good for IndyCar.]
