Raikkonen expected to compete in next week's Nationwide race

Mal acabamos de vivenciar a primeira corrida de Kimi na Truck Series, e ontem mesmo já havia a história dele correr pela Nationwide na semana que vem. Está tudo meio misterioso, mas parece que é quase certo, como vocês podem ler na matéria abaixo. Durante a semana deveremos ter mais novidades a respeito.

Raikkonen expected to compete in next week's Nationwide race

CONCORD, N.C.—Kyle Busch fessed up.

His comments earlier Friday weren't the whole truth, when he said he wouldn't field a Nationwide car for Kimi Raikkonen next week.

Busch has been working on a deal that will put Raikkonen in a Toyota for the May 28 Nationwide race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In fact, the car is already at the Kyle Busch Motorsports shop.

"I don't own it," Busch said with a sly smile after winning Friday night's North Carolina Education Lottery 200 Camping World Truck Series race at Charlotte.

Who does own it, Busch wouldn't reveal, after admitting the car was a Toyota.

In his first news conference with NASCAR reporters, Raikkonen mentioned that he expected to drive in the Nationwide race at Charlotte. When asked about it, Busch was circumspect.

"We don't have a Nationwide Series license (at Kyle Busch Motorsports), and our crew guys aren't licensed for the Nationwide Series or anything," Busch said. "It would have to be with somebody else."

Clever, but the not whole story, as it turned out. Accordingly, you can expect to see Raikkonen behind the wheel of a Toyota on May 28—in a car to be named later.

When asked if he was running the Nationwide race, Raikkonen said, "We'll see," after finishing 15th in Friday night's truck series race at Charlotte—his NASCAR debut.
