Hamilton, Stewart swapped rides for a promotion in 2011 Defending Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton has been making all kinds of news this week cozying up with Rihanna at a street festival in Barbados. And he wants to try his hand at NASCAR. The British racer has two F1 titles and currently sits atop the series' standings, 21 points ahead of Nico Rosberg of Germany. While taking a break before the Belgian Grand Prix Aug. 21-23, Hamilton told The Mirror, a British website, that he would like to compete in American stock-car racing. "I'd really like to do a NASCAR race one day," Hamilton said. Joey Logano would welcome sharing the track with Hamilton and tweeted his support for the idea.
