The 2023 Australian Supercars Champion, Brodie Kostecki, has further NASCAR ambitions, and Richard Childress is keen on making that happen. While at the Adelaide 500, a prestigious Supercars Race over the weekend, Richard Childress told Fox Sports that he wants Kostecki to race 2-3 times on road courses plus some time at an oval in 2024. Which race teams and which races could Kostecki run in 2024?

Race Teams

SVG’s development deal for 2024 has opened up some interesting possibilities for Kostecki. He likely will get some opportunities in the Cup Series, but what about the Xfinity Series as well? There are a couple of race teams that Kostecki will most likely race for.

Richard Childress Racing (Cup OR Xfinity)

Given that RCR has fielded a third Cup Series and a third Xfinity Series car part-time before. They fielded a third car for Kostecki at the Indianapolis Road Course Race, and they fielded a car for Ty Dillon for 2 Xfinity Series races this season. Given the fact that Childress is spearheading the effort to get Kostecki into the Cup Series again, Kostecki should race for RCR at some point.

Kaulig Racing (Cup OR Xfinity)

Kaulig Racing uses ECR Engines in both the Xfinity and Cup Series. That company is owned by Richard Childress himself, and Kaulig runs an All-Star car in the Xfinity Series along with a part-time third entry in the Cup Series. With Childress looking to find the sponsorship on his own, he could potentially convince Kaulig to field Kostecki for a race or two.

Jordan Anderson Racing (Xfinity)

Jordan Anderson Racing is also an ECR Engines client, and they have fielded a third car at times in the Xfinity Series this year. This makes them a candidate for Kostecki, and they are a team that has won races before. Quality of equipment is very important for Kostecki, and Jordan Anderson Racing provides solid, but not spectacular equipment for him to race in.

Races

There are plenty of eligible races for Kostecki to run in 2024. However, these are the four that may be the most interesting to see him compete in.

Sonoma

Sonoma falls on an off-weekend in the 2024 Supercars schedule, so, Kostecki could make a start during this weekend. It would be an interesting road course for Kostecki to compete on given the elevation change and twisty nature of the circuit. It’s not too dissimilar to another track he has competed on before, Mount Panorama.

Watkins Glen

Richard Childress may not be a fan of fielding a third car during a Playoff race, but, the other two regular season road course races, Circuit of the Americas and the Chicago Street Race, fall on Supercars race weekends in 2024. It’s not an elimination race, so, it’s not as risky as running him at the Charlotte Roval, which is an elimination race.

Spring Race at Martinsville

The spring race at Martinsville falls within about a four-week break in the Supercars schedule. In order to round out Kostecki’s skills on ovals, going to an oval that only NASCAR goes to should be near the top of the list for Kostecki. It could be a good weekend for Kostecki to learn some of the nuances of NASCAR racing on ovals.

Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway

The Coca-Cola 600 sits on an off-weekend for the Supercars schedule, and Kostecki has experience in endurance races. He finished 2nd in the most recent edition of the Bathurst 1000, so, the Coca-Cola 600 actually falls within his strengths more than one may think. It would also give him some much-needed experience on an intermediate, with the shot of confidence from knowing he has raced in endurance races before.

What will Brodie Kostecki’s 2024 NASCAR schedule look like? Who will he race for and what races will he participate in?
