Other Supercars personalities also won big bets on SVG, who defied the odds to win on his debut in the NASCAR Cup Series. Speedcafe Newscast also reveals the prize-money riches available to NASCAR race winners.

Van Gisbergen and Supercars championship leader Brodie Kostecki will be at much shorter odds for this weekend’s Verizon 200 on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. But they’ll start as leading contenders, both capable of top 10 or better finishes.

While NASCAR is now wise to the road course prowess of Supercars drivers, and on a track more familiar to NASCAR regulars, SVG and Kostecki will still be worth backing at shorter odds. A local betting plunge is still likely, with win and place bets set to reap rewards.

Jack Le Brocq talks about his remarkable revival, winning a race and roaring into regular contention after years in the wilderness.

Team 18 owner Charlie Schwerkolt outlines why his squad is poised for sustained success after a decade in the doldrums.
