Trackhouse Racing‘s co-owner Justin Marks has confirmed his Project 91 initiative won‘t run Kimi Raikkonen at its next NASCAR Cup appearance but has a ‘done deal‘ with a new driver and sponsor.

Raikkonen raced to a 29th-place finish at Austin‘s Circuit of the Americas on Sunday, having run as high as fourth entering the closing stages. The next road course on the Cup schedule is June‘s Sonoma race, which Trackhouse won last year with regular driver Daniel Suarez, and while Marks confirmed a new face would be joining his team, he refused to be too specific.

“Project 91 is going to race more this year,” Marks told SiriusXM. “We‘re going to have a different driver in the car the next time we‘re out. We‘ve closed a great sponsor for that, so the deal‘s done.
