Fernando Alonso to NASCAR?!

Fernando Alonso to NASCAR?!

The silliest of all silly seasons might be about to go up a notch? Did McLaren just hint that Fernando Alonso is joining NASCAR?! In all likelihood, we're actually in line for a bit of social-media goodness between Alonso and seven-time cup series champion Jimmie Johnson – but stranger things have happened!

Alonso has announced that is quitting Formula 1 at the end of the year, having grown disillusioned with his inability to secure a top drive.

IndyCar has been widely expected to be Alonso's destination, with only a victory in the Indianapolis 500 standing between him and matching Graham Hill's unique feat of winning the 'Triple Crown'.

Alonso has clearly been taken with Stateside motorsport, but stock-car racing had not been expected to be on his radar.

McLaren teased a meeting between two-time world champion Alonso and IndyCar legend Johnson on Wednesday.

What does it mean? We can't wait to find out!
