Villeneuve set to go truckin’
Jacques Villeneuve could hardly wait to officially get his NASCAR career under way Saturday night at Las Vegas. The former open-wheel star is hopping onto the fast track in an effort to be ready for the Daytona 500 in February.
Bill Davis Racing announced Aug. 24 that Villeneuve would compete in the final seven races of the 2007 Craftsman Truck Series in preparation for a shot at the top-tier NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2008.
