The latest reports in the saga of Jacques Villeneuve's impending switch to stock cars say it won't be happening just yet.

As we reported earlier, the former world champion was talking with Roush Racing, one of the biggest outfits in stock cars, to race in the second-tier Busch series for 2007 in preparation for an anticipated assault on the big-league Nextel Cup for 2008. Roush is now calling any such prospect "an outside shot", leaving the French Canadian driver without a ride for next year.

With a Busch race scheduled for Villeneuve's home town of Montreal next season, he had looked like a shoe-in, holding the F1, CART and Indy 500 titles, but it looks like he may have to start even smaller – like fellow defected F1 driver Juan Pablo Montoya has – if he hopes to make it in the world of moonshine racing.
