CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Juan Pablo Montoya thought former Formula One teammate Kimi Raikkonen did a good job in his NASCAR debut, and expects to see him in a Sprint Cup Series race this season.
But if Raikkonen is serious about NASCAR, Montoya said the former world champion will have to move to the United States and race as often as possible.
``If you are going to do it, you've got to do it properly,'' Montoya said Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. ``It will bite you if you don't do it properly.''
Raikkonen made his NASCAR debut in Friday night's Trucks Series race, finishing 15th driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports. The Finn has not officially announced his next race, but Busch admitted after the race there's a car ready for Raikkonen to use in next week's Nationwide Series event at Charlotte.
