Wheldon may test for Ganassi at Las Vegas

The 2005 Indy Racing League champion, an Englishman who lives in St. Petersburg FL, will have his first test in a stock car, perhaps as early as next week in Las Vegas. If all goes well, he said, he might eventually follow Juan Pablo Montoya to NASCAR's highest level. "I look to have a good IndyCar season," said Wheldon. "But I definitely want to start looking very seriously at the NASCAR stuff." Wheldon was unable to conduct his first scheduled Busch test last week on the road course at Virginia International Raceway because of rain. He insists he needs to feel he can be as good in stock cars as in Ganassi's open-wheel machines to make a full-time switch. St. Petersburg Times
