Narain Karthikeyan made history at Martinsville as he became the first driver born in India to make a NASCAR national series start. Karthikeyan was on the lead lap until Lap 200, when contact with Clay Greenfield sent the No. 60 around and Karthikeyan was unable to get it re-fired, dropping him a lap. Karthikeyan was the benefactor of the free pass, returned to the lead lap and finished 13th.

Thats impressive debut for the NASCAR series...

If he continues to do well, definately he will move to the main NASCAR series.
