Actually, Jeff Gordon competed in the Race of Champions a couple years ago, when they get the top drivers from the top series' from all over the world (NASCAR, Champ/IRL, WRC, F1, DTM, Le Mans, Superbike, etc.) and they each other 1 on 1 in WRC cars, Ferrari Challenges, and dune-buggy looking things. The Americans actually won, and Gordon beat Gronholm in the rally section.

There are some really world class drivers in NASCAR, it's just that they are in a 3rd rate series with world-class marketing and pay.
