NASCAR racer Michael Waltrip headed to Le Mans
Still, over the years a handful of NASCAR drivers have ventured over to the Circuit de la Sarthe to test their mettle – in fact, back in 1976, NASCAR sent entire teams and cars across the ocean to help promote the sport – and now Michael Waltrip has become the latest to catch a plane heading to Le Mans, France.
Michael Waltrip won't be driving his Toyota Camry overseas, however, as he has joined an AF Corse team that's campaigning a Ferrari F430. There's no grandstand lighting to guide Waltrip as he navigates the nearly 8.5-mile course, so we at Autoblog wish him good luck and good headlights.
