Jacques at Talladega

This will be Villeneuve's first test alongside the big guns of the NEXTEL Cup and is seen as being a key step in his programme.

“In one way, it’s a very big day, but alongside that, it’s just another important test," Villeneuve says. "Either way, I’ve got to focus on getting the best out of me, the car, and the team. The speeds are high, which I’m used to, but the scale of the track is something very different. I’m really enjoying the whole NASCAR experience, and I’m looking forward to this."

Jacques will once again be driving a Bill Davis Racing Toyota Camry ‘Car of Tomorrow’.
