Just a little update on my blog from yesterday speculating on whether Dan Wheldon, who had mentioned the possibility of running stock-cars as recent as last season, might be working on a jump to NASCAR.
It's not happening.
Instead he's moving to Panther Racing, the team with which he started his IRL career.
I think it's a win-win for all parties involved.
Dario Franchitti wins because he gets back into the series he should have never left and with a championship caliber team in Ganassi Racing.
Ganassi Racing wins because it replaces a championship driver with another championship driver.
Panther Racing wins because in inherits a championship driver in Wheldon.
Dan Wheldon wins because, well I'm not quite sure how he wins quite yet, but as long as he's happy he's a winner in my book.
And finally, NASCAR wins because the last thing it needed was another open-wheeler struggling to make it in stock-cars.
