2009 Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button didn’t say no to the prospect of potentially running NASCAR Cup races in the future. However, he would only be interested in road courses.

“I would definitely be interested in racing on street circuits, road courses, but I just don’t want to jump in for one race,” he explained, answering another question from Motorsport.com. “That’s not exciting for me.”

Jimmie Johnson, a co-owner of Legacy Motor Club Cup team, said, “I think I can talk him into it. We haven’t had much conversation about it, but the third car that I’m driving — the 84 car — (with) the commitment we’re making to that program, we need to run the car more. So, hopefully we can find funding and interested drivers and figure out how to run that car more often.”
