New Zealand streaming platform picks up NASCAR

NEW Zealand motorsport fans have got their wish, with streaming platform ThreeNow striking a deal to show the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity Series live and free.

The arrangement is timely, given Shane van Gisbergen is about to embark on his first full season in the United States.

Van Gisbergen will contest the entire Xfinity Series, at least seven Cup Series races, and the ARCA Menards Series opener later this month at Daytona.

While Kiwi fans had no legal means of watching SVG’s NASCAR cameos last year – including his remarkable win on debut in Chicago – that will not be an issue this time around courtesy of ThreeNow.

“Awesome to hear the news that NASCAR will be shown on TV in NZ this year!” said van Gisbergen.

“It’ll be a few early Sunday and Monday mornings for the Kiwi fans, but hopefully, I can do my best to make it worth it.”

Meanwhile, the Trackhouse Racing driver has aligned himself with KHI Management, the company co-owned by retired champion Kevin Harvick.

“We’ve had a busy off season at KHI, both on the management side and the racing side. On the management side, we’ve added Corey (LaJoie) and Shane which is great for us,” Harvick announced.

“With Corey established in the Cup Series and Shane making his transition to NASCAR, I am confident KHIM can help them navigate their careers and grow their brands.”

Van Gisbergen added: “It’s been a huge change for me moving to the USA for 2024 and beyond.

“It’s an exciting opportunity to team up with Kevin and the KHI Management team.

“I feel like I am in a great place for not only on track but off-track support to help me throughout my NASCAR journey.”
