Nelson Piquet Jr will take part this weekend in the first round of the 2011 Pan American Rotax Series East Division karting championship at the Homestead Karting Center in Miami, Florida.
Nelson said: “I love kart racing, it’s so competitive and a lot of fun so I decided to do this race in the break between the NASCAR Truck Series events. It should be a great weekend and I’ll definitely be trying for the win!”
The series has an East and West division in the USA, with each division to host two-double round race weekends. There is then a championship weekend in September, with champions from each division being crowned prior to the beginning of that final weekend. The race at Homestead takes place Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 April.
Nelson’s next NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event with Kevin Harvick Inc will take place on 22 April at Nashville, round five of the championship.
