Busch wants Toyota test

American stock car ace wants to swap seats

NASCAR driver Kyle Busch is hoping to test for Toyota in an off-season swap with one of their Formula One drivers.

Busch, who currently leads NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series standings, says he is in talks with Toyota about heading to Japan at the end of the season.

And, in return for an F1 test, Busch says he will hand over his Joe Gibbs Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup car to either Jarno Trulli or Timo Glock.

"We're working on a test session right now at the end of November or beginning of December sometime, going to Japan and doing a little exhibition sort of deal and see what it's like," Busch told SpeedTV.

"We'll take the Cup car over there, too, I think. Just kind of run around there at either Twin Ring (Motegi) or something like that and show them what the Cup cars are like and try to get in the Formula 1 car, too."

However, only time will tell whether or not the test will lead to an F1 future for the up-and-coming American star, with Busch saying: "We'll see how good I test, first.

"We'll see if my neck can withstand the g-forces of the braking and everything. I wouldn't mind it.

"If I can do it and I'm good at it then I'll give it a shot and try it."

However, commenting on F1 as a spectacle, Busch added: "It seems as though their racing isn't all that great - they kind of get stuck in line and the aero takes over everything."
