OOO How The Tide As Turned…. Nascar’s Stanton Barrett To Indycar Full Time
WOW, now this is a stunner. According to the always reliable Curt Cavin, Greg Beck’s team will be fielding a full time Indycar ride next year for long time Stuntman and Nascar Driver Stanton Barrett. Not only are there no Indycar drivers defecting to Nascar this year but over the last few weeks 2 drivers have defected from Nascar to Indycar.
As a side note Stanton and A.J. Foyt IV both played in the “Dukes of Hazzard”, Stanton as stuntman and Foyt as himself. Just a little useless info.
