If NASCAR's Tony Stewart accepts Roger Penske's offer to drive in next year's Indianapolis 500, that would be fine by some IndyCar drivers.
"That would be awesome. I hope he does it," Will Power, one of Penske's regular IndyCar series drivers, said Tuesday during a break in testing at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.
Penske, whose cars have won a record 15 Indy 500s, made the offer at NASCAR's season-ending banquet last week.
Brad Keselowski, who drives for Penske's NASCAR team, won the Sprint Cup Series title. Stewart has won NASCAR's championship three times.
Stewart, who so far hasn't responded publicly to Penske's offer, would have to double up to drive in the Indy 500. The race is scheduled May 26 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and, later that day, NASCAR holds the Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte, N.C.
