Shane van Gisbergen and Brodie Kostecki will both join the NASCAR Cup Series field on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on the weekend of August 13.
Van Gisbergen became the first NASCAR Cup driver to win on debut when he took victory on the streets of Chicago in July, reuniting with Trackhouse Racing’s Project91 program at Indianapolis.
He will be joined by Kostecki, who makes his NASCAR top-flight debut in a third entry for Richard Childress Racing.
“I never dreamed this could have all rolled out this way,” said van Gisbergen.
“Just getting to race in NASCAR is an opportunity I never thought I would get, but then to win and get another chance this year is beyond anything I imagined.
“I can’t thank (Trackhouse founder and owner) Justin Marks, everyone at Trackhouse Racing and NASCAR for this opportunity. Everyone in NASCAR welcomed me to Chicago and it’s been awesome to see how big the reception from that race has been around the world. I am honored to be part of it.”
Three-time Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin will also be in action at Indianapolis that weekend, with IndyCar and NASCAR racing on the same circuit on the same weekend.
Van Gisbergen and Kostecki will head to America following next weekend’s Beaurepaires Sydney SuperNight at Sydney Motorsport Park, which features the only night race on the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship calendar.
Following the Verizon 200 in Indianapolis on August 13, both drivers will immediately head back to Australia for the OTR SuperSprint at The Bend Motorsport Park on August 18-20.
