Narain Karthikeyan heading to Formula 1

The Fastest Indian in the World's NASCAR tenure has apparently lived up to the "fast" billing.

However, that fast refers to the length of Narain Karthikeyan's Camping World Truck Series career, not the fact that he outraced his competition.

Karthikeyan announced on Twitter that he'll be in Formula 1 in 2011 to drive for HRT. In what's probably not much of a coincidence, the Indian Grand Prix is on the Formula 1 schedule for the first time in 2011.

The Truck Series Most Popular Driver in 2010 -- no, that's not a misprint, think of the sheer population differences -- ran nine races in 2010 with a best finish of 11th at Texas.
