Kimi Raikkonen joins Jenson Button in NASCAR

Just a few weeks from now, Jenson Button will write a new chapter in his long (and varied) racing career.

With his debut in the NASCAR Cup, America’s premier motorsport competition, the 2009 F1 world champion will perform a 180 degree turn in his career.

Three NASCAR Cup races will be run by Button.

He confessed that he first encountered NASCAR through the movie Days of Thunder, and will make his debut at the Circuit of the Americas on March 26.

As part of the American tour, he will compete in the Chicago street race (a new addition to the championship) on July 2, followed by the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway (in road course configuration) on August 13. “We’ve picked three circuits that work out really well, they’re the perfect trio,” the Briton told the international press, including MARCA.

“COTA, I know you haven’t driven at Chicago – driving one of these around a street course sounds insane – so it’s the same for us all.”

Indy is different from my track, but it has some of the same corners.”

One of the key reasons he has decided to take this step now is the greater presence of conventional tracks (in the United States, road courses).

A greater number of circuits of this type would enable him to be more competitive, he said.

I need to learn more than just how to drive the car; I need to learn things like overtaking and contact.

“I’ll have to get used to that.”.
