Lewis Hamilton piqued the interest of NASCAR fans on Thursday afternoon with an interesting admission in Miami. He is interested in NASCAR, according to Jenna Fryer. Hamilton was in Miami area as Formula One prepares for the second Miami Grand Prix this Sunday.
- Hamilton is a seven-time Formula One World Champion with 103 career wins. His seven championships are tied with Michael Schumacher for the most all-time, and his 103 wins are the most all-time.
- This comes amidst preparation for the first of three US races for Formula One this season, with the others being Circuit of the Americas in October and Las Vegas in November. Five F1 World Champions have raced in NASCAR, Jim Clark, Mario Andretti, Jacques Villenueve, Kimi Raikkonen, and Jenson Button.
- Fans on social media mainly thought of one person Hamilton could go to for his NASCAR ride. That person was Justin Marks with Trackhouse Racing.

Nothing like a full TV channel giving a comment on a story like this.
Could Lewis Hamilton become the next Project 91 entry or just the next driver in F1 in general? We shall see, but with F1 growing in the United States, this seems more feasible than in previous years.
