Villeneuve will drive two races in the #22

Brad Keselowski will turn over the drivers seat of the #22 Discount Tire Dodge to Jacques Villeneuve for two road course races this season. Villeneuve will drive the Penske powered car at Road America and at Circuit Gilles Villeneve in Montreal.

The accomplished open wheel driver has made a handful of appearances in the Nationwide Series. Last season he drove the #22 car at Road America and Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. He finished 3rd and 27th.

Villeneuve won CART Series races at Road America in 1994 and 1995. He was said to be still actively seeking full time employment for a NASCAR team. The #22 car is currently eighth in the NASCAR Nationwide owner standings.
