No, no, no. I like Tony but I hope he doesn't make this move. Retire on top of your game in the IRL.

He's just about at retirement age for open wheel racing, if he decides to run NASCAR he's good for another 20 years.

It's true that he's getting too old for open-wheel. In open-wheel you rarely see drivers much beyond thirty, and TK is thirty-eight. From an open-wheel perspective, he's an old man.

There's a problem with a move to NASCAR, though. TK isn't American. Though we do technically have non-American drivers in NASCAR, they're a small minority and Americans tend to have a bias against foreign drivers. I can only think of two current Sprint Cup drivers, out of forty-three full-time drivers, that aren't born in the US - Montoya and Ambrose. Being a foreigner doesn't mean he can't drive in NASCAR, of course, but he won't be well-received by fans.

Another open-wheel chump looking to make himself look stupid by the good ole cab drivers of NASCAR. You'd think the chumps would have figured out by now that there is a little more to stock car racing than there is to high gokarts. I guess he's decided to try to make some real money.
