It has been seen this season in the NASCAR Nationwide Series that Joey Logano and Kyle Busch have been battling hard on the race track. Now, these two will have the opportunity to do battle in a different environment.

This Monday night, the Joe Gibbs teammates will be the guest host of WWE Monday Night Raw.

One day removed from racing 500 laps at Martinsville, these two will be heading up to Buffalo, NY, to stand alongside guys like Triple H, the Big Show, and Shawn Michaels.

But what will they do with their control? Would Logano and Busch consider stepping into the ring and settling their little feud?

This season in the Nationwide Series, Logano and Busch have finished one-two five different times. But, it is Logano holding a 4-1 advantage on his teammate. And Busch is not afraid to say he is tired of finishing second to the Sprint Cup rookie.

Maybe these two could settle their differences inside the WWE ring. It certainly would be the ultimate "heel vs. face" matchup.

There's no secret as to how the fans feel about Kyle Busch. His nickname, Rowdy, says it all. His aggressive driving, no excuses attitude, and his "not my fault" demeanor make him a perfect heel in professional wrestling.

Then you have Logano, the 19-year-old who is a pure baby face. The fans love this young man. He's taken to the Cup Series rather well, despite his slow start.

It could be so unique seeing these two lace up some wrestling boots and go at it in the squared circle. Maybe Busch could team up with Cody Rhodes and Ted Debiase to take on Logano, who could team up with DX.

Logano and Busch would be the fourth and fifth athletes to host the WWE program. Cleveland Cavaliers center Shaquille O'Neal, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and boxing star Floyd Mayweather have each hosted the show on separate occasions.

It will certainly be an interesting and fun night when Monday comes again. The LIVE broadcast of WWE Raw is on USA starting at 9 p.m. Eastern.
