Villeneuve to test NASCAR truck
Jacques Villeneuve will test session a NASCAR truck next week as he looks for a new direction for his racing career. The former F1 world champion will try a Bill Davis Racing Toyota at the Chicagoland Speedway on Monday.
Villeneuve has not raced on ovals since 1995 but he has proved himself, having won the CART championship and the Indianapolis 500. Starting out in trucks will give Villeneuve the chanmce to ease his way into NASCAR before he moves on presumably to the Busch and then the Nextel Cup Series.
