Rubens Barrichello struggles in stock car season debut in Brazil, comes 25th after blown tire

Former Formula One driver Rubens Barrichello struggled in his first race after joining a stock car series in Brazil, finishing 25th after blowing a tire at Interlagos circuit Sunday.

The 40-year-old Barrichello started in the middle of the 34-car grid and stayed there during most of the race until a blown right-rear tire forced him to make a pit stop.

Barrichello is competing in Brazil again after more than two decades racing abroad. He ended his F1 career two years ago and couldn't secure a seat for a second season in the IndyCar Series in 2012.

The Brazilian says the "result was horrible" but he's "enjoying" the experience.

Barrichello drove three races as a guest in the stock car series last season, finishing no better than 22nd.
