NASCAR is getting a bit of international flair this weekend at Watkins Glen International,

where Formula 1 star Kimi Raikkonen will make his Cup Series debut.

Raikkonen — the 42-year-old Finnish driver who’s won 21 races,

along with the 2007 F1 world championship, and raced in F1 from 2001 to 2021,

minus two years from 2010-11 — will make his first Cup start at the upstate New York road course,

piloting the No. 91 Trackhouse Racing Chevrolet. He’s part of Trackhouse’s PROJECT91,

which aims to bring international stardom to the Cup Series,

and there is little doubt that the spotlight will be on him all weekend long.

With Raikkonen, Trackhouse will field three cars at Watkins Glen,
