Supercars points leader Will Brown joins Richard Childress Racing for Sonoma

Another Supercars competitor will make his debut in the NASCAR Cup Series as Will Brown joins Richard Childress Racing.

Brown, who leads the points in the Repco Supercars Championship, will drive the No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro at Sonoma Raceway on June 9 (3:30 p.m. ET on Fox).

Brown will make his debut on Friday, June 7, with a practice session at the Northern California road course. He will then qualify on Saturday, June 8.

Brown will cap off his weekend with the 110-lap race that closes out Fox's portion of the NASCAR schedule.

"It's just an incredible opportunity to be able to come out and race at the highest level in America," Brown said in a statement. "I am extremely thankful to Richard Childress and everyone at Richard Childress Racing for the opportunity. I've been interested in NASCAR since I started racing Supercars, and even more so since the recent wave of success that some international drivers have had crossing over into the NASCAR Cup Series.

"I've got some great sponsors that have supported me for a long time in Australia, and I'm lucky enough that MobileX is joining us for the race, along with a long-term partner of mine, Shaw and Partners. Incredibly thankful also for Motorola and everyone else who has come on board for the race. It's been massive to get everyone to support the program, and we wouldn't have been able to do it without them. I'm looking forward to the race and have been working hard to prepare."

Multiple competitors from the Repco Supercars Championship have made their way to NASCAR's national series. The most recent have done so since the start of the 2023 season.

Shane van Gisbergen made the biggest splash. He made his Cup debut last season with Trackhouse Racing and he won the inaugural Chicago Street Race. He then returned to Cup at Indianapolis Motor Speedway's road course and finished 10th.

Van Gisbergen has since signed a development deal with Trackhouse Racing and moved full-time to NASCAR. He competes full-time in Xfinity for Kaulig Racing while making select Cup starts.

Cameron Waters made his NASCAR debut this season. He joined ThorSport Racing in the Truck Series, first at Martinsville Speedway. Waters also drove for ThorSport Racing at Kansas Speedway earlier in May.

Waters will make his Cup debut the same weekend as Brown. He will drive the No. 60 Ford for RFK Racing at Sonoma.

Richard Childress Racing fielded an entry for a different Supercars driver last season. Brodie Kostecki joined the team for the final road course race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and he drove the No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro.

Kostecki's weekend began with an issue in qualifying. He crashed in Turn 11 and had to go to a backup car for the race. Kostecki had originally qualified 11th.

Kostecki started the race at the rear of the field but did not get many opportunities to make adjustments and gain positions on restarts. There was only one caution, which took place on Lap 2.

The remaining 77 laps after this early restart ran under green flag conditions as Michael McDowell won. Kostecki finished 22nd.
