Looks like it will be a couple of years before DJR/Penske supercar driver Scott McLaughlin makes a appearance in Nascar.
He resigned last week for a undisclosed period but thought to be only one year.
Mclaughlin has always said he isnt interested in winning multiple Aus championships and would love a shot at Nascar. Penske have said he is a prime candidate but would have to work his way up like Ambrose did. He has a American fiancee who would no doubt be keen to return home. Still only 26 so has a bit of time, with a race win points lead in the championship will no doubt make a 100% attack at the Bathurst 1000 this year which is the only thing not achieved in his supercar career.
I really hope he makes the switch in 2021, honestly think he would be at least as good as Ambrose on road courses and better on ovals.

Forgot all about it, may be raining here some today so I'll watch a little.
Heard that the Xfinity race was a wreck fest.

Those last couple of laps were fun to watch.
Was just glad that the 22 got shuffled back. ;)

agree .... the last couple of laps were throwbacks to the racing that founded NASCAR .... if they truly want to fill the stands, they need to bring that level of racing back into the sport for more than a few laps a race
