Raikkonen continues international migration to NASCAR


CONCORD, N.C. – Kimi Raikkonen could make more money and enjoy more international fame in Formula One, but like most racers it’s not what drives him. That’s why he’s the newest open wheel driver to migrate to NASCAR.

Raikkonen, who will make his Nationwide Series debut in today’s Top Gear 300 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, won a world F1 championship in 2007. Now he’s racing Rally cars with hopes of working his way into a Sprint Cup Series ride.
