At last it has been confirmed good luck to Kimi at least he will never have to see his old Ferrari foes ever again now,i can't wait to see him racing in the Sprint Cup as that is the only thing we get to see over here.For some unknown reason we don't get to see the Sprint Cup races live anymore,it's a bummer.

While I really think highly of Kimi as an F1 driver, I doubt he will have much success in NASCAR. Montoya had previous experience on oval circuits and still he is hardly a championship contender. Montoya doesn't have a smooth driving style, but I think experience also matters since oval racing is a whole other world.

The money?

If he was doing anything for the money he would be back in F1 or at least the premier NASCAR series. This is the truck series not even the 2nd tier NASCAR series - any lower and he would be going around a dirt oval at the local county fair.

This has so many comic possibilities...the Finn trying to understand the Good 'Ol Boys, and vice-versa...trying to teach Kimi, possibly the least-gregarious racing driver ever, that not only is it desirable for him to display some personality, he must also remember to thank every sponsor, his team owner, his crew chief, and the waitress who served him breakfast...

There may be enough material here for Will Ferrell to want to film "The Ballad of Ricky Bobby II"--
