Hamilton to drive NASCAR at Watkins Glen

By Motorsport.com/GMM

Lewis Hamilton is set to drive a premier Sprint Cup NASCAR for the first time later in 2011.

American sports network ESPN reports that the McLaren driver will swap his Formula One car for Tony Stewart's Chevrolet.

The exhibition, organised by mutual sponsor Mobil 1, is set to take place some time in the summer at the famous Watkins Glen road course in New York.

The car provided by McLaren for the swap will be the British team's 2010 model MP4-25, the report said.

Stewart-Haas Racing spokesman Mike Arning confirmed the report.
