FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Kimi Raikkonen (KIM-ee RYE-kuh-nen) is testing well in NASCAR as the former Formula One world champion prepares for his debut in a truck owned by Kyle Busch.
After testing for two days at Gresham Motorsports Park in Georgia this week, Raikkonen was at Rockingham, N.C., on Thursday for more laps in the truck.
Busch says the test went well in Georgia, and that Raikkonen was good again at Rockingham.
The Finn will make his NASCAR debut on May 20 driving a Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota Tundra in the Trucks Series race at Charlotte, N.C.
Busch says the former Formula One champion is also interested in running Sprint Cup and Nationwide races, which is something that will be re-evaluated after his truck debut.
