MOSCOW, 26 Jul – Russian driver Daniil Kvyat will make his National Stock Car Racing Association (NASCAR) debut with Team Hezeberg, according to the team’s Twitter page.
The first race for Kvyat in this car series will take place on July 31 at the track in Indianapolis.
In February, the International Automobile Federation (FIA) announced the cancellation of the Russian Formula 1 round amid the situation in Ukraine and allowed Russian drivers to take part in competitions only in a neutral status. In March, Kvyat refused to sign the FIA declaration of commitment to the principles of peace and political neutrality.
Kvyat is the most successful Russian driver in Formula 1 history. He has three podiums, one fastest lap and 202 points. The Russian was a Formula 1 driver from 2013 to 2017 and from 2019 to 2020. In the 2021 season, he was a reserve driver for the Alpin Renault team.
