Tracy Considers NASCAR Move

2003 Champ Car champion Paul Tracy is considering a move to the Nextel Cup series in 2006 if plans to hold a NASCAR race in Canada come to fruition

36 year old Tracy, about to begin the final year of his existing Forsythe Racing contract, revealed his plans to the Toronto Sun newspaper, stating: "There are a lot of things happening in Canada right now with NASCAR - my eyes are wide open to the possibilities."

Tracy was offered a NASCAR test by Richard Childress after claiming the Champ Car title, but the Canadian opted to stay and defend his title. Another offer was made last year to run a one off race in California was also turned down, a decision Tracy is said to now regret.

With less than a week until he climbs into his car for the start of the Champ Car season his focus is on his current job, but it is clear that he will keep an eye on the future.

"The main reason I've stayed in Champ Car is that I've been able to race in Canada," he noted, "and one of the main things that would draw me to NASCAR would be if they were to race in Canada.

"I'll wait to see what happens with NASCAR - I have a whole year."
