    The idea of F1 legend Lewis Hamilton racing in the NASCAR Cup Series has been gaining some traction for some time now.

    Some years ago, it might have seemed impossible, but right now, it seems that the seven-time F1 champion could drive in the Cup Series at some point in the future. The driver himself confirmed his desire to do so back in May this year. He said:

    “I did a car swap with Tony Stewart years ago, which was fun. I’d love to try it at some stage.”

    If the situation becomes a reality, then many Cup teams would be glad to offer the opportunity to the F1 legend. And given 23XI’s Racing third car on a part-time basis, they could certainly be in contention.

    Well, at least, their No. 23 driver Bubba Wallace wants his organization to do so. He was asked about any driver he would like to see in the No. 67 car, to which Wallace replied: “Lewis (Hamilton)”.

    Since their formation in 2020, 23XI Racing has gone from one car team to fielding two full-time cars and one-part time car. While it is kept for Kurt Busch when the driver returns to racing, the organization has already fielded Travis Pastrana and now Kamui Kobayashi will also drive the car for the race at the Indianapolis Road Course.
