Fresh off his win at the Indy 500, driver Will Power puts the IndyCar series championship is now at the top of his checklist.

But the 37-year-old Aussie isn’t ruling out a run at the stock-car circuit down the road.

“I’d love to race an oval in NASCAR, that would be fun,” Power said on the latest “PodcastOne Sports Now” weekly show with co-hosts Jim Litke and Tim Dahlberg of The Associated Press.

But Power said he hasn’t made any serious inquiries about picking up a ride, in part because. “I see how long it takes to get good at your craft. ... Those guys are absolutely top notch and it would be tough to turn up and be competitive.”
