NASCAR Drivers in V8 Supercars?

With the V8 Supercars set to race at the new Circuit of the America’s in Texas in 2013, and suggestions that the event may follow a similar guest driver format to the Gold Coast 600 – except using exclusively American drivers – a question comes to mind…

…how would a NASCAR driver do in V8 Supercar?

I think they would do extremely well, and in fact it has already happened.

Of course, Boris Said has had a few runs in our cars, but what about the top drivers? Here’s Dale Earnhardt Jr testing a PMM V8 Supercar at Queensland Raceway in the 2008 off-season.

For a first drive, not bad – the car still had the old H-pattern gear shift, was almost certainly running on old tyres, and was on a track Earnhardt had never seen before.

Jimmie Johnson in a HRT Commodore versus Carl Edwards in an FPR Falcon?

Yes please!
