Trackhouse Entertainment Group has announced the creation of PROJECT91, a program designed to expand its international reach by fielding a NASCAR Cup Series entry for renowned international racing drivers.
Trackhouse’s PROJECT91 will enter the No. 91 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at least once during the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season, with 2007 Formula One World Champion Kimi Raikkonen set to race on the road course at Watkins Glen (New York) International on August 21.
“Kimi Raikkonen is the driver I first had in mind when we created PROJECT91,” said Trackhouse Founder and Owner Justin Marks. “We now have a race vehicle with international technological relevance where world-class drivers from other disciplines can compete at NASCAR’s highest level without the steep learning curve that the previous generation cars required… With the formation of PROJECT91, Trackhouse has opened the door for global champions while beginning the process of scaling into an internationally recognized racing brand.”
Trackhouse Racing is a division of Trackhouse Entertainment Group and fields the No. 99 and the No. 1 Chevrolets with drivers Daniel Suárez and Ross Chastain in the NASCAR Cup Series.
