NASCAR has always had its eyes on the global stage, dreaming of zooming across tracks far and wide, with drivers hailing from every corner of the globe. Shane Van Gisbergen’s entry into the fray was a step in that direction, but it seems like they’re still hungry for more international flair. The buzz is that Cameron Waters, another star from the Supercars world, might be revving up for a 2024 debut with RFK Racing.

As per the latest reports, there’s a hush-hush deal brewing between Waters and RFK Racing. They could be joining forces on a full-time gig. However, the big reveal appears to be on hold, likely because Waters just recently renewed his ties with his current Supercars team. It’s all about timing, and it seems like they’re waiting for just the right moment to drop the exciting news.

Thanks to Justin Marks’ Project 91, Shane Van Gisbergen got a taste of NASCAR, and boy, did he make a splash by winning his first-ever NASCAR race! Since then, Supercars Racing has been on everyone’s lips, with NASCAR teams eyeing their top drivers for a spot on their rosters. One big draw could be the familiarity with next-gen cars. Dale Earnhardt Jr, a NASCAR legend, pointed out that NASCAR’s Next-Gen cars share a lot with V8 Supercars. He reckons this similarity could be a real game-changer for Supercars drivers looking to switch lanes to NASCAR.

That might just be the secret sauce behind the success of NASCAR’s newbies. Remember Brodie Kostecki teaming up with Richard Childress Racing? Now, as per speedcafe.com it’s Cameron Waters’ turn to rev his engines. He’s set his sights on three NASCAR Cup starts with Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing. The deal’s all but sealed, just waiting for the green light, especially since he recently re-upped his contract with Tickford Racing. Waters reportedly got into a discussion with RFK Racing during a Stateside trip before the Bathurst 1000. His ties with Monster Energy played a big part in this, with the brand eager to fuel his NASCAR ambitions.

Waters’ commitment to Tickford was penned about three months ago, but the announcement got tangled up in some contract kinks. This new arrangement gives Waters the green light to chase NASCAR dreams next year before he buckles down with Supercars in 2025.

Stage 60, RFK Racing’s third car, is all set to make its grand entrance, aiming to blaze a trail at the Daytona 500 in February. They’ve handed the keys to David Ragan, a two-time winner making his big comeback to the Cup Series with Build Submarines as their primary sponsor.

The team’s got plans to roll out the No. 60 Ford in several races throughout the 2024 season, though they’re keeping the details under wraps for now. It’s been a while since RFK Racing flexed a three-car lineup in a Cup race – not since 2016, when Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Greg Biffle, and Trevor Bayne were tearing up the track.

Ragan’s also pumped to be back in the driver’s seat for RFK. “It’s really exciting to be back in an RFK Ford. I spent some of the best years of my career driving for Mr. Jack (Roush) and the team at RFK. They really gave me my first opportunity in the sport and I have to thank BuildSubmarines.com for helping make this happen. We had a really strong run going in my last year at Roush at the 500, and hopefully we can go back and finish what we started.”

With so many exciting prospects on the horizon for RFK Racing, it remains to be seen how the team fares in the upcoming season? Will they be able to turn their fortune around? Only time will tell.

Controversies, gossip, and breakneck speeds? Count me in! While F1 has its charm, NASCAR helps me relive those "Roadrash" gaming days. My favorite among the drivers has to be Tyler Reddick. The 23XI Racing pilot is not only likable but also a complete beast when he is on track, more specifically, road courses.
