Raikkonen picked up the 27th spot in his lone Xfinity Series (then Nationwide Series) start at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2011, coming home four laps down. To Formula One fans, Raikkonen needs no introduction, as he won the 2007 F1 championship and has 21 race victories so far, as well as holding the record for most F1 starts with 330 and counting.
