Kimi Raikkonen says he's paid up

By David Newton

CONCORD, N.C. -- Former Formula One champion Kimi Raikkonen says there was a misunderstanding with Kyle Busch on the financial arrangement concerning Raikkonen's venture into NASCAR.

Busch said Thursday that Kyle Busch Motorsports was "supposed to receive so much, and we have not" in the deal to run in three to five Truck Series races.

Raikkonen said Saturday he has paid in full for driving Busch's truck last weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway and for driving a Nationwide Series car for Busch and Joe Nemechek Saturday at CMS.

He said further payment will depend on whether he drives another Truck Series race for Busch.

"I mean, it's a situation we paid," Raikkonen said after qualifying 22nd for Saturday's race. "Who knows if we want to do more."

Todd Hirschfeld, who manages Raikkonen's racing efforts in the United States, said Raikkonen's situation changed when he added the Nationwide race to the schedule. "It was taken out of context. Kimi doesn't know what he wants to do, but everything so far has been paid for."

There has been speculation that Raikkonen, after finishing 15th in his Truck Series debut, is ready to speed up his NASCAR progression and will make his Sprint Cup debut next month at the road course in Sonoma, Calif. He tested one of Robby Gordon's Cup cars earlier this week at Virginia International Speedway.

Hirschfeld said he has been told nothing of Raikkonen's plans. Raikkonen said he will return to Europe after Saturday's race.

"I have other things to do," he said Friday. "After that, I don't know when I will be back. I have a rally in Greece and some other rallies."

Edwards on Raikkonen: Who is that guy?

CONCORD, N.C. -- At one point during Nationwide Series practice Thursday at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Carl Edwards found himself trailing the No. 87 Toyota.

Edwards radioed to his crew chief and asked, “Who’s in the 87?”

The driver was 2007 Formula one champion Kimi Raikkonen, preparing for his Nationwide Series debut on Saturday. Edwards could see that the handling of the car was loose to the extreme, and he was impressed with the way Raikkonen hustled it around the 1.5-mile track.

“They need to take about 500 pounds of right-rear spring out of that thing,” Edwards said after the session. “He (was) loose, and he was driving the wheels off it. I was just surprised. I didn’t know who was in that car.

“I had no clue, and then I saw that Perky Jerky (Raikkonen’s sponsor) on there, and I thought it might be him, but he definitely has some car control -- that’s for sure. That’s not lip service. That was pretty amazing. I might have seen smoke off the right-rear.”

It's weird to have Kimi in person coming out to clarify "business" issues. But I'm happy he did.

EDIT: I think I didn't get one single word right in the first version of the post :blush:
