Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: A major player in the IndyCar ranks is considering a jump to NASCAR’s top level…Oh, you thought that sad experiment ceased for the most part in 2008 when Dario Franchitti, Patrick Carpentier, Jacques Villeneuve, et al. tried and failed at it?

If you put any stock into the latest story from the rumor mill, it looks like it’s about to happen again—except this time with an owner.

Multiple sources have told Fox Sports’ Lee Spencer that Michael Andretti of Andretti Autosport is now a candidate to field Dodge’s flagship Sprint Cup team in 2013.
