Finn Salo, the former Ferrari and Toyota driver, almost made the NASCAR switch a couple of years ago.

"This year it is finally happening," the 44-year-old confirmed to Turun Sanomat newspaper.

Salo, who contested more than 100 Grands Prix and stood on the podium twice, said he will make his debut in the formative Truck series in July.

He was in Turkey last weekend as a commentator for Finnish broadcaster MTV3.

Commenting on his famous countryman Raikkonen's move to NASCAR, Salo said: "Of course it would be nice to race in the same league as him, but I understand that at the point I will be starting he will already be in Nationwide or perhaps even Sprint Cup."
