Villeneuve to test with Penske: Jacques Villeneuve will return to form for the NASCAR Nationwide the best possible manner: by testing in NASCAR Nationwide Series. From what RueFrontenac.com has learned the driver is currently in the workshops of Penske Racing in Mooresville, in the Charlotte area, in order to locate its headquarters and to custom tailor the cockpit of one of Dodge Challenger team. The team is preparing a test day on the road course Road Atlanta on Wednesday. Brad Keselowski will test at the wheel of his #22 Dodge while Villeneuve could drive the Challenger usually entrusted to Sam Hornish Jr., one adorned with the #12 made famous by Villeneuve's father. Nothing is assured for Montreal, Road America or at Watkins Glen.(translated from Rue Fontenac)(5-17-2011)

Reading the article in French and from my point of view, it is difficult to say but I feel that both goals were aimed by Roger Penske...

As well as Penske has shown his interest in JV and, finally, he has attracted medias' attention...

4 targets reached with only one move = Roger Penske.

MVHO.

NASCAR: Jacques Villeneuve joins Penske Racing for road races

http://www.autoweek.com/article/20110524/NASCAR/110529897

By GREGORY LAHOOD on 5/24/2011

Jacques Villeneuve will drive the Penske Racing No. 22 Dodge Challenger in the NASCAR Nationwide Series races at Road America on June 25 and at Montreal on Aug. 20.

Villeneuve won the Formula One world championship in 1997. He will be filling the seat of Brad Keselowski, who will compete in the Sprint Cup Series at Infineon Raceway on June 26 and Michigan International Speedway on Aug. 21.

"I am really looking forward to joining Penske Racing and getting the chance to race at two of my favorite tracks with the series championship team. I am excited to work with the Discount Tire/Ruby Tuesday Dodge Crew, and we should be very competitive in both of these events," Villeneuve said.

Villeneuve has had success at Road America and Montreal during his career. He won CART Series races at Road America in 1994 and 1995. The French-Canadian driver also finished in third place in the Nationwide race in Montreal last season.

"It's great to be able [to] bring aboard a driver like Jacques, who has raced and won at the highest levels of motorsports," said Tim Cindric, president of Penske Racing. "Jacques has run well at both of these tracks before and he'll be a good fit on the No. 22 Discount Tire/Ruby Tuesday team."

I thought Ganassi would give JV a look before Penske, but it's nice to hear of the respect Roger has for JV.

We knew JV would find a ride for the road races, and it's important to focus on Nwide as that's where he has the chance to find a competitve car. In Cup, all the good seats are occupied by the regulars for the roadies.

Road America and Mtl are the 2 stand alone races, so I guess that's why the deal didn't include the Glen, where I assume Brad will drive. It will be interesting to see what JV does for the Glen as far as other offers go.

JV is essentially a hired gun, but I'm OK with it since Penske, in return, gives JV as good a shot as any team for victory. Put Jv in a top car for the first time, and people are going to expect dominance after what we saw in second tier equipment in previous years. There may not be a future at Penske, but a win or two would be a game changer on the sponsorship front.

Best of all, we're in for another memorable summer of JV racing at the sharp end of the field.
