TC Daily Pit Stop: Supercars Team 'Wouldn't Stand in Way' of NASCAR Effort for Shane Van Gisbergen in 2024; Entry Lists for Atlanta, Mid-Ohio
TC Daily Pit Stop: Wednesday, July 5th, 2023

After a historic victory in Sunday’s Grant Park 220, the first-ever NASCAR Cup Series event on the Chicago Street Course, many questions arose about the possibility of the Auckland, New Zealand native pursuing a full-season effort in NASCAR.
The 34-year-old driver has one more season left on his contract with Triple Eight Race Engineering in Australian Supercars, the series in which he’s captured 80 victories and won back-to-back championships in 2021 and 2022.
There may be some wiggle room for the newly-crowned NASCAR Cup Series winner, though, should he decide he wants to run NASCAR in 2024, says Triple Eight Race Engineering team principal, Jamie Whincup.
