Report: Villeneuve signs with Roush Racing

Jacques Villeneve has reportedly signed a deal to race in NASCAR in 2007.
According to the Italian sports daily Gazzetta dello Sport, the former F1 champion has inked a deal to race with Roush Racing. The report also indicated that Villeneuve would move back to Canada from his current home base of Europe.
Neither Roush Racing nor NASCAR have confirmed the report.
Roush, one of the leading Ford teams in the Nextel Cup series, currently campaigns cars for Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle, Jamie McMurray, Carl Edwards and Mark Martin. However, Martin is scheduled to retire at the end of the season which would create an opening for the Canadian.
Roush also runs six cars in the Busch Grand National Series, which will be making its inaugural stop in Montreal next season.
Villeneuve has maintained that if he were to run in NASCAR in 2007, it would most likely be at the Nextel Cup level, but you can expect a strong push to be made for Villeneuve and other Canadian drivers to take part in the Montreal race.
Villeneuve would be the second Formula One driver to make the switch to NASCAR this year, joining Juan Pablo Montoya who will race for Chip Ganassi's team in 2007.
