It seems that quite a few of them are the same sponsors as those on Kyle Busch's truck:

PERKY JERKY UNVEILS NASCAR RACE TRUCK AND PAINT SCHEME TO BE PILOTED BY FORMER FORMULA ONE CHAMPION KIMI RÄIKKÖNEN IN HIS NASCAR DEBUT

World Waits to See Kimi Räikkönen’s Performance in First NASCAR Race

DENVER, CO. (MAY 17, 2011) Perky Jerky, the ultra-premium jerky flavored with a hint of guarana that’s quickly gaining fame around the world, unveiled today the paint scheme set to adorn Kimi Räikkönen truck for his NASCAR debut in the Camping World Truck Series race this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. This race will mark the first time the 2007 Formula One world champion will compete in a NASCAR event.

Räikkönen’s self-owned operation, known as ICE1RACING, which also fields his World Rally Championship and motocross teams, has partnered with Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) to assist in the move to NASCAR. KBM will field the No. 15 Toyota Tundra for Räikkönen to pilot Friday night.

Known worldwide as “Iceman” for his surgical driving skills and calculated demeanor both on and off the track, Finnish race car driver Kimi Räikkönen is regarded as one of the world’s most successful professional athletes. His move to NASCAR has captured the attention of the global sporting media and the world is waiting to see how Räikkönen will adjust to the world of NASCAR.

“Perky Jerky might only be two years old, but we have one of the best race car drivers in the world to represent our brand in America’s greatest race series,” said Brian Levin, Perky Jerky founder and chairman on the herd. “We look forward to seeing Kimi take the green flag on Friday for Perky Jerky and we’ll be cheering him along as will our Perky Jerky fans across the country and around the world.”

Already entrenched in NASCAR as the official and exclusive jerky of the Daytona 500, Perky Jerky has developed a marketing strategy that includes consumer sampling via velcro suits, better known as the “jerk suit” and tasting opportunities via the “jerk bar”, a traveling sampling display, which has become a must-stop at many NASCAR events around the country.

Kimi Räikkönen will drive the No. 15 Perky Jerky Toyota Tundra in the NC Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday, May 20, 2011. The race will air on SPEED beginning at 8:00 pm ET.

About Perky Jerky: Four years ago during a ski lift calamity, Perky Jerky’s founders spilled energy drink all over their stash of beef jerky. Stranded, hungry and 40-feet off the ground, they ate the soaked jerky and realized they were on to something. Three years in the kitchen and hundreds of homemade jerky recipes later, Perky Jerky was perfected and launched in 2009. In less than two years, Perky Jerky has quickly reached stratospheric levels of popularity amongst athletes, moms, students, troops and truckers alike. Perky Jerky can be found at many retailers across the country, including Home Depot, 7-Eleven, Publix, Target, Sports Authority and many other fine retailers. Keep up with Perky Jerky on Facebook and on Twitter

Raikkonen's NASCAR debut free to view

Kimi Raikkonen's NASCAR debut this weekend will be broadcast live and for free in the UK on digital station Premier Sports.

Sky customers will be able to watch the 2007 Formula 1 world champion racing a Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota in the Truck Series at Charlotte in freeview, thanks to a one-off deal that the channel has agreed with NASCAR.

Richard Webb from Premier Sports, which current broadcasts the top-level Sprint Cup in the UK, said: "It is not that often that European drivers make the switch to NASCAR and the media interest in this event is growing all the time.

"We had a lot of request from fans asking for this race and it made sense to come to an agreement with NASCAR as it is the ideal opportunity for both of us to promote the sport while keeping our loyal NASCAR fans happy."

Premier Sports will broadcast the race on Sky channel 433 from 01:00 on Saturday morning UK time.

The channel has also confirmed that it will continue to broadcast the NASCAR Sprint Cup live, and on a subscription-only basis, in 2012.

Subscribe to premier TV to watch all Sprint Cup events live in the UK. Visit http://www.premiersports.tv for more information.

Raikkonen prepping for Trucks debut

Updated May 18, 2011 1:33 PM ET
CHARLOTTE
Kimi Raikkonen has not been sitting idle since it was announced on April 2 that he would compete in the No. 15 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota Tundra in Friday’s N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

After the 31-year-old former Formula One champion performed a two-day test last month at Gresham Motorsports Park followed by a half-day test Rockingham, KBM officials felt confident that Raikkonen would be ready to compete in the Camping World Truck Series.


“He did a tremendous job,” said crew chief Eric Phillips. “It took him an hour or two at Gresham to get up to speed but when we got to Rockingham, after four laps he was faster than when we’d been there testing with Brian (Ickler) or Taylor (Malsam) last year. So me and Rick (KBM General Manager) were really impressed.”

During last month’s tests, the team worked with chassis adjustments, various shock packages and air pressure changes as the driver acclimated to the truck first on the half-mile track and then at the 1.017-mile speedway at the Rock.

“It was a lot of fun, I really had no expectations or anything to compare it to beforehand but at the end of the day, I am really looking forward to the first race,” said Raikkonen in a team release. “It seems like KBM is a top team and I am excited to work with them.”

KBM also sent Raikkonen additional materials, including videos of earlier races at Charlotte Motor Speedway, to expedite his learning curve in a truck.

“I believe we also sent him a few in-car cameras so he can watch and get used to listening how throttle control was, how much you’re on the gas, how to race people and sometimes what happens when you’re side by side with guys,” Kyle Busch said. “I think I won the truck race there last year and the year before (Ron) Hornaday and I battled it out and we ended up spinning or something. He’ll get a good view of what to expect ... with some in-car camera stuff.

“When he gets back to the States, he’ll go over the NASCAR R&D Center and sit down with those guys and get an explanation of the drivers’ meeting -- the long version of the drivers meeting, the one that tells you all about double file, passing the pace on the wave around, the long version so he can get an idea of how everything works. That’s pretty much it.”

While it was the hope that Raikkonen would visit the NASCAR R&D Center, his schedule might not permit it. NASCAR senior director of communications for competition Kerry Tharp said the sanctioning body was simply extending an invitation and there was nothing required of the driver before the race.

Although there are 43 entries for the truck race and only 36 positions, Busch said driving the truck “is pretty simple, like anything else.” Busch should know. He won the race from the pole last year in his own equipment. It was Busch’s third win and third pole in a truck at Charlotte.

“As far as the truck goes, it’s like any of the other trucks that we have,” Busch said. “We had one in the stable and we’ve been working on it for two months now, probably, ever since we’ve known. We’ve been fine-tuning on it and getting ready along with my truck for Charlotte.”
