A freelance photographer will take Kimi's photos on Friday. And he's hired by Sutton for the race so there'd be plenty of them on Sutton Images too.

tweet from Houston F1 Group

Kimi will have to qualify on time for the truck race. 43 trucks entered, only 36 spots. Should be cool!

Per the Charlotte media availability schedule, the #nascar media will get its first audience with Kimi Raikkonen at 12:15 p.m. Friday.

Woooohoooooo thanks Kriss :D

I think Kimi should be in Charlotte already ''hmm''


At least he should already be in the US, but with Kimi you never know :lol:

There're no news about him doing any more tests, right?

I have been asking around. The guys in AS told me that from the 36 spots in the race, 25 are reserved for the "pre-qualified drivers" (those 25 whose constructors have the most points). That means that there're 17 cars that will fight during qualy for the 11 grid spots left. The guys there think that Kimi should not have too many problems to get one of those 11 spots because his car is good.

Moreover, it seems that if Kimi doesn't make it during qualifying, he can pay other teams so they withdraw from the race, until he gets one spot for the race. And even, it is possible to pay one of the teams that qualyfied so they let you use their number, and then you can race :blink:

Truck races are quite shorter than the Sprint Cup ones, they're about 2 hours long. It depends on how many cautions they have. Sprint cup races can be about 4 hours long.
