RICHMOND, Va.–Reports that popular Brazilian IndyCar Series driver Tony Kanaan is considering an offer to drive for Joe Gibbs Racing in the Nationwide Series in 2014 may be premature at best.
Yes, the 2013 Indianapolis 500 winner visited the Joe Gibbs Racing shop in Huntersville, N.C., and met with team principals earlier this week.
But according to JGR spokesperson Chris Helein, that’s as far as it went.
“There is no deal,” Helein told the NASCAR Wire Service in an e-mail response to a request for comment. “Just had an initial meeting. Nothing even being formally discussed.”
