Red Rover, Red Rover Send Michael Right Over

If Ray Evernham has his way, Michael Schumacher will be driving a Dodge and rubbing on a Nascar track on day, but don’t expect it to happen anytime soon. Michael has said in the past, “Personally, I wouldn’t do it. What do you do in NASCAR? What is exciting there? I can’t see that, running around on ovals.” What is exciting? Apparently, he has never watched a race, and apparently, he doesn’t want any Nascar fans. But, with the success that everyone is already laying on Juan Montoya’s feet, I would expect more and more to come over and give it a shot and see what real racing is all about.

If Michael Schumacher wants a ride in NASCAR, Ray Evernham has one waiting for him.

Evernham, who works with German company DaimlerChrysler, has issued an open invitation to the seven-time Formula One champion to give stock car racing a try.

The German driver retired from racing red Ferraris after the 2006 season. Asked recently about Juan Pablo Montoya leaving F1 to drive in NASCAR, Schumacher told The New York Times: “Personally, I wouldn’t do it. What do you do in NASCAR? What is exciting there? I can’t see that, running around on ovals.”

But Evernham would like him to reconsider.

“I’ll put him in a red car, a real good car, any time he wants to come over here and try it,” he said. “A lot has changed in recent years. These cars are looked on as much more sophisticated than they used to be. I think he’d find them technical enough to keep him happy.” Source: Kenseth, Kahne Fail Qualifying Inspections

Ray, you can have him as far as I am concerned, sounds like he doesn’t get Nascar at all, so let him retire, he’s to old for Nascar anyway. ;) And Ray, you should’ve stuck with Gordon, you will never find another combination like you all had.
