Waters buzzing after early Sonoma charge

BEING the innocent victim of a multi-car wreck did little to dampen the spirits of NASCAR Cup Series debutant Cam Waters.

A last-start race winner in Supercars, Waters qualified 31st in the 38-car field at Sonoma Raceway but had risen to 11th by Lap 35 of 110 when Josh Berry speared into a group of cars at Turn 11 including the #60 RFK Mustang.

Damage sustained ultimately ended Waters’ race, but the 29-year-old nevertheless raved about his experience.

“This whole week has been a blast, and I honestly can’t thank everyone from RFK Racing and my partners for making this happen,” he wrote on social media.

“First half of the race went so well, we made 20ish spots and the strategy was working perfectly, unfortunately some contact resulted in some damage to the car which put us out, but not letting that take away from how racey we were, and how enjoyable this whole experience has been.

“Hopefully I’ll be back!”

Waters has committed to contesting the 2025 Repco Supercars Championship with Tickford Racing but is hoping for further cameos in the States.

It wasn’t a much better result for Will Brown, with electrical issues restricting him to 31st.

“Tough day, was moving forward at the start but our electrical gremlin creeped back in unfortunately that stuck around all day,” Brown wrote.

“Was awesome to run the whole race and drive against the NASCAR Cup guys, massive thank you to (Richard Childress Racing) for working hard and getting me back out there!”

Shane van Gisbergen yesterday won the NASCAR Xfinity race at Sonoma.
