A New Penske Sports Car Superteam?

By now, Y'all know that the news has finally confirmed the obvious, that HULIO' is leaving Indy Cars to become a fulltime Weathertech SportsCar Championship racer aboard El Capitano's factory Acura Prototype team for 2018.

While Roger Penske will field at least four entries for the Month of May, with Helio Castroneves returning for both the road course and Oval events for Team Penske.

Now I have absolutely ZERO Clue if the unthinkable will happen, but let's ponder the realm of possibilities, shall we?

Currently, at least publicly, Castroneves co-driver for the Honda Works Acura DPi (Daytona Prototype International) hasn't been announced.

And now Bloody JENSE', currently Hobbsnobbing at Suzuka, has been widely quoted in the News that he misses racing, and wishes to return to the cockpit in 2018, albeit not sure aboard what. Although the IMSA Prototypes category looks enticing...

and he's apparently still got some links with the Japanese Auto Maker, who arranged for his outing at the Suzuka 1000km race in a Tintop recently, and Hmm? Tars' an open Acura DPi seat at Penske...

As it would be awesome if Jenson Button went Sports Car racing Stateside, and eventually made a "One-off" appearance at Circuit de la Sarthe.

As driving here would allow him to continue his dalliances with his current girlfriend in California, Playboy model, and the January 2015 Playboy Playmate of the month's Brittney Ward.

Although I'm not sure who's Ego's bigger? Castroneves or Button's? And if they could get on with each other?

Then again, Jenson's used to working with another Prima donna named Lewis Hamilton...
