And all the while, Kimi is still sporting Red Bull helmets and hat insignia - even on the otherwise brown Perky Jerky hat, lol. It is cool in a nostalgic way that Red Bull continues with some kind of sponsorship because they have been there from the start. Even if that road got bumpy here or there...

Why does kimi get a 7-11 logo on his #87? Is this his team sponsor?

Not sure, but I was trying to look for pics of Joe Nemechek's car and I didn't see the 7-11 logo on it...

Spencer: Raikkonen test car damaged

Kimi Raikkonen tested at Virginia International Raceway, the 3.27-mile road course in Danville.

Reports came in early Tuesday afternoon that after just a half-dozen laps, the former Formula One champ ripped the nose off the front end of the No. 7 Dodge he was testing for Robby Gordon Motorsports, according to multiple sources at the track.

Raikkonen, 31, finished 15th in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut Friday night driving a car prepared by Kyle Busch Motorsports. Raikkonen will race this weekend in the Nationwide Series race in the No. 87 Toyota.

Sorry, my English found its limits here.
I know what's to rip the nose in F1, but for a Nascar car what does it mean? That he lost the bumper à la Jari-Matti?

If that's all... well it's not that bad. Jari-Matti can do it 5 times during a rally and still do very well :lol:

The Glen would be HUGE! Great track and events. But top5? Kinda hard for Kimi.
