After trying to secure an Indianapolis 500 ride a few years ago, Kyle Busch will be making his IndyCar debut Saturday — virtually.

The two-time NASCAR Cup champion announced Wednesday via Twitter that he will be driving in Round 4 of the IndyCar iRacing Challenge.

The event will be held Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN from the virtual Twin Ring Motegi in Japan.
