Supercars Star Will Brown Making NASCAR Cup Debut at Sonoma with RCR

Will Brown NASCAR debut Richard Childress Racing Sonoma Raceway 2024

Will Brown, an eight-time race winner in the Australian Repco Supercars Championship Series, will make his NASCAR Cup Series debut for Richard Childress Racing in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway on June 9.

The 25-year-old driver made the initial announcement in the form of a social media post on Wednesday evening. In the post, Brown states, “Absolutely incredible opportunity to be able to head stateside and race at the highest level in America with @RCRracing!! Can’t wait to get to Sonoma and have been working hard to prep, but first we’ve got Supercars in Perth this weekend!”

Per a story on Motorsport, the racer will pilot the No. 33 “open” entry for RCR in the event with primary sponsorship from MobileX and Motorola.

In addition to his incredible resume in the Repco Supercars Championship, Brown has also recorded a championship in the Australian Formula 4 Series and in the Australian Toyota Racing Series.

The Australia-native will join Cam Waters, another driver from Supercars fame in the event as Waters will pilot the No. 60 RFK Racing #Stage60 entry in the race at Sonoma. Waters is an 11-time Supercars race-winning driver, who has also competed in two NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series events this season.

Richard Childress Racing fielded the No. 33 entry for Supercars racer Brodie Kostecki last season, and was expected to again this year with a partnership from Kostecki’s Supercars team Erebus Motorsport, but an odd situation unfolded this season, where Kostecki and Erebus parted ways for the opening two events of the 2024 season.

Kostecki would later rejoin Erebus on April 7, but it appears his 2024 hopes of running a NASCAR Cup Series event with RCR have not materialized.
