[NASCARfilter]A question my 8-year-old son posed to me. In two of the divisions of NASCAR, Sprint Cup series and Nationwide series, drivers regularly race in both races. It is our understanding that the Nationwide series is a lower tier series, kind of like AAA minor-league baseball. Why do the "big names" of Sprint Cup race in the Nationwide races (besides experiencing the track itself in real race conditions)?

I would compare this to Reggie Jackson suddenly deciding to insert himself in the lineup of a Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees game. Or me participating in a dodgeball game during my son's P.E. class. Why are they allowed to race in these lower tier races?
