CHARLOTTE, NC - Former Formula One world champion Kimi Raikkonen will make his Nationwide Series debut on Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Raikkonen is listed on the entry release that came out Monday as driver for the No. 87 Toyota for NEMCO Motorsports. The car is owned by Joe Nemechek, but he made a deal with Kyle Busch to let Raikkonen drive Saturday.
Raikkonen made his NASCAR debut Friday night with a 15th-place finish in the Trucks Series race. He drove for Kyle Busch Motorsports.
Raikkonen has given no indication how far he plans to take his NASCAR venture. He's said only that he's trying NASCAR to see how he likes it, and will base his progression off of that.
