Räikkönen, the 2007 Formula One World Champion and 21-race winner, returns to NASCAR behind the wheel of the No. 91 Recogni/iLOQ Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, introducing two new technology companies to the sport. Recogni, headquartered in San Jose, California, focuses on vision-based artificial intelligence, according to the team’s press release, aiming to allow vehicles to “make driving decisions more accurately than humans while consuming minimal amounts of energy.”

iLOQ is a Finnish-based company that has partnered with Räikkönen, a native of Espoo, Finland, since 2019 that centers around digital locking technology.

Räikkönen, who made respective Xfinity and Truck series starts in 2011, returns to stock-car racing in the Go Bowling at The Glen on Sunday (3 p.m. ET, USA Network, NBC Sports App, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
