2007 F1 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen will make a return to racing this summer.
The 42-year-old, who raced in 349 Grands Prix, will compete for Trackhouse Racing in what will be his NASCAR Cup Series debut.
The event will take place on the road course at Watkins Glen International on 21 August.

Raikkonen is no NASCAR rookie
It will not be the first time that Raikkonen has raced in NASCAR, though, with the Finn having competed in both the Camping World Truck Series and the Nationwide Series back in 2011.
Those outings came during his break from Formula 1, which occurred between his exit from Ferrari in 2009 and his return with Lotus in 2012. During that period, Raikkonen also competed in rallying.
It will be the first time that the 21-time Grand Prix winner has returned to the track since his final outing in F1 for Alfa Romeo at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
