How small can a clevo rod journal be ground?

Is a 1.850" rod journal out of the question?
Just thinking along the lines of the small journals the Nascar guys run.... I know they use SVO cranks as a starting point, but is there any reason a good 4MAB or similar 351 crank can't be ground that small?

The often overlooked concern when turning journals undersize, is it moves the oil galleries...

I know it moves the galleries, but can it be done?
