ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) - Jacques Villeneuve still wants to do a full season in NASCAR.
The former Formula One champion and Indianapolis 500 winner has had only a handful of chances to race in NASCAR since his unsuccessful shot at making the move from open-wheel racing to stock cars a few years ago.
He's back in the Nationwide Series this weekend, taking Brad Keselowski's place in Penske Racing's No. 22 car for Saturday afternoon's race at Road America.
Villeneuve is a master of the scenic four-mile road course that winds through the tree-lined hills of central Wisconsin. He led a handful of laps and put on quite a show last year, using a series of eye-popping moves to get in contention before an electrical cable disconnected and cost him a shot at the victory.
With a good run Saturday, he hopes to earn more chances to race.
