JPMs background was open wheels and road racing. He was a previous series champ and Indy 500 winner and the move back to open wheels cannot be considered a "drop down", by any means.

To your point, however, NASCAR sometimes has a perception that anyone can jump in and be successful, but that's a farse. Unless Daniel has any oval or saloon car racing background, it's a tall order for success.





Who is the successful top series racer that cut his teeth in mini stocks? Now that may have some weight for success.
