Kimi Raikkonen to drive in Nascar Cup Series in August

Former Formula 1 world champion Kimi Raikkonen will return to racing in a Nascar Cup Series event in New York in August. The 42-year-old, who won the F1 title with Ferrari in 2007, retired from the sport last year. He will drive a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for Team Trackhouse, which is owned by ex-racer Justin Marks and rapper Pitbull. “I wasn’t looking to race again,” said Finland’s Raikkonen. “This will be fun, but it’s something I will take very seriously. I know how competitive the Nascar Cup Series is and it will be a big challenge.”. The race on the road course at Watkins Glen in Dix will take place on 21 August.
