Nelson Piquet Jr and Vitor Meira will test a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Toyota Tundra at Little Rock on Monday, October 12.

Red Horse Racing will field two Toyota Tundras - both displaying #1 - for Piquet and Meira to drive on the short track at Rockingham Speedway. Red Horse regulars Timothy Peters and TJ Bell will also be on hand to help the open wheel drivers acclimate to their first stock car test.

Both Piquet and Meira plan to use this test with Red Horse Racing to evaluate future options, the former looking for a way to resurrect his career after the fall-out from F1's Singapore-gate [see separate story - click here].

"We look forward to helping Vitor Meira and Nelson Piquet make the transition into NASCAR," said Red Horse Racing Owner, Tom DeLoach.

"It's not an easy thing to do to go from an open wheel background to racing stock cars but they are both immensely talented and have the ability to be successful in any series they chose to race in"

Pacific Mobile will be a sponsor of the test as they are also evaluating NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Racing.
