Villeneuve's "Deal" Still $16 Million Short

Former Formula One champion Jacques Villeneuve has reached an agreement with Roush Racing to help him begin his NASCAR career next season, though there are still abut 16 million hurdles left to clear.

Roush Racing President Geoff Smith said yesterday that Villeneuve could race in the Craftsman Truck Series next season, before eventually graduating to the Busch Series. He said there is 50/50 chance that Villeneuve could take part in the inaugural Busch Series race at Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve next August, but that Villeneuve needs to come up with 16-to-18 million dollars in sponsorship to make the deal happen.
