Nelson Piquet Jr.’s decision to detour from a difficult situation in Formula One to a new life in NASCAR is looking better and better.

Piquet became the first Brazilian to score a victory in a NASCAR national series Saturday when he won at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis.

It was no fluke. The former F1 driver, son of three-time F1 champion Nelson Piquet, led 19 laps, including the final 17, and won by two seconds.
