Stock Car Scoop: How Will Kimi Raikkonen Fare at Watkins Glen?

It’s a weekend of left and right turns for the NASCAR Cup Series field at Watkins Glen International, but with a Formula 1 champion in the mix.

Kimi Raikkonen returns to stock-car racing for the first time since 2011, so Adam Cheek and Michael Finley debate how well the Finn will perform at the New York road course, how the Next Gen will perform at the track and if there will be a 16th winner to fill up the playoff field ahead of the visit to Daytona International Speedway.
