Waters, Brown on simultaneous NASCAR Cup debuts

SUPERCARS stars Cam Waters and Will Brown say the fact that they’re making their NASCAR Cup Series debuts together will make the occasion even more special.

Two of the very best in the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship field, Waters and Brown will make cameo appearances for RFK Racing and Richard Childress Racing respectively at Sonoma Raceway on June 9.

“Mine has probably been on the cards for four weeks, it came about pretty quickly with Richard Childress,” Brown explained after finishing second, one place ahead of Waters, in Race 1 of the Perth SuperSprint.

“I did a race there with them last year at COTA and I guess I had a pretty good start to the year here with Supercars and thought I could probably reach out again and see if there was any opportunities over there.

“I was able to get a deal done which was awesome, to race over there will be great.

“Hopefully I can get more experiences and more knowledge and bring it back here as well; it’s pretty cool to do a NASCAR race.

“I started talking to Cam and he said he’s doing it as well and I thought ‘that will be pretty cool’.

“Hopefully we can have a good race over there and have a good time.”

Waters echoed those sentiments.

“Obviously I have done two (NASCAR) Truck races which has been a massive experience and a massive eye-opener,” he said.

“It will be great to do Sonoma which is a road course and in a car that’s more similar to what we race over here.

“I was super pumped and then when I heard Will was doing it, I was just a little bit more excited again.

“They race pretty wild over there so hopefully we look after each other!”
