How Kostecki’s 2024 NASCAR plans could look

BRODIE Kostecki will ideally compete in up to three NASCAR Cup Series races next year, according to his manager.

While Kostecki is pouring full focus into securing the 2023 Supercars title, his agent Nathan Cayzer of Cayzer Management is keeping an eye on a slightly expanded American campaign.

Kostecki definitely won’t race in NASCAR again until 2024, having made a one-off appearance last month at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The 25-year-old showed excellent pace on the road course, qualifying 11th in a 39-car field on debut despite getting almost no practice laps.

Damage from a crash after setting that time forced Kostecki to start from the rear of field, from where he worked his way back up to 22nd.

“Richard Childress Racing is pretty keen to have him back and they’ve been very open about that,” Cayzer told V8 Sleuth.

“So once everyone has got the schedule and we know what here looks like, which has always been the priority and what it needs to be, and then we’ll look at what next year looks like with NASCAR – then we can try to work in a schedule that works for both of us.”

Asked how many events Kostecki is looking at, Cayzer responded: “I think if you could do two or three would be great.

“But again, it has got to fit in with what Erebus want and also it has got to fit in with what’s right for the team and for him.

“The whole discussion once we know the schedules, we’ll sit down with Baz (Erebus CEO Barry Ryan) and work out what he’s comfortable with and go from there.”

The bright lights of NASCAR has done little to distract Kostecki from his Supercars charge, with the #99 Coca-Cola Camaro driver’s record since then reading three wins and a second place in four starts.

He’ll team up with co-driver David Russell for the upcoming Repco Bathurst 1000 on October 5-8.

Kostecki’s current deal with Erebus Motorsport is due to expire at the end of 2024.
