Good Debut For Raikkonen In NASCAR

The former Formula 1 world champion Kimi Raikkonen has made its official debut in the NASCAR racing series last weekend and he did a pretty good job. He participated in the Camping World Truck Series NC Education Lottery 200 in his No. 15 Perky Jerky Toyota Tundra.

He started the race from the 31st position, managing to end it in a respectable 15th position, crossing the finish line on the same lap as the leaders of the race. At one point during the race, the Finnish driver was on the seventh place, but he lost a lot of ground when he missed a pit stop at a crucial moment in the race.

He successfully evaded lots of multi-car accidents that happened in front of him and he managed to survive a couple of close calls. Kyle Busch, Raikkonen’s teammate won that race.

The F1 champion will return this weekend to Charlotte in order to participate in the Nationwide Series race, driving a Toyota Camry.

Ford Wants To Bring Mustang To Nascar’s Sprint Cup Series

Ford Mustang NASCAR Nationwide Race Car

According to ESPN, Ford is planning on replacing the current Fusion with the Mustang for the 2013 Nascar Sprint Cup Series. Replacing the Fusion is a process that might take all year, and the Blue Oval is required to show that the Mustang is a competitive car. The reason behind this decision is that the automaker wants to show to potential customers that they have the possibility to purchase a car right off the showroom that mimics the one they watch on TV every weekend.

Ford already has a Mustang stock car (pictured above) that races in the Nascar Nationwide Series. The company, which is seeking its 600th win in the Cup Series in the season-opening Daytona 500, will continue to use the Fusion for this season and the next one.

Video: Nascar and tuning legend Jack Roush injured after plane crash


Mustang and Nascar fans have no doubt heard about the legendary Jack Roush. He is not only the boss of the Roush Fenway Racing team, but also the owner of the Roush Performance tuning company.

Sadly, the 68-year old Roush has been involved at the beginning of the week in a plane crash, his second in 8 years. It seems that while attempting to land his company’s private jet on the Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the plane went out of of control and, despite Roush’s last second corrections, nose dived into the tarmac.

Luckily, both Roush and one of his female employees, Brenda K. Strickland, managed to walk away from the crash site. The hospital revealed that his condition was critical, but is now stable. His company revealed that Roush will walk away healthy, but some surgery is needed.

This is Jack Roush’s second airplane crash in 8 years, as he was forced to crash land his World War II fighter in a lake back in 2002.

Hit the jump to see the news story from ESPN and let’s wish mister Roush a healthy recovery.
