Shane van Gisbergen and Kaulig Racing revealed the seven Cup Series races he’ll compete in while driving the No. 16 Chevrolet during the 2024 season on Thursday. The select Cup events coincide with the Trackhouse Racing driver running full-time in the Xfinity Series in Kaulig’s No. 97 Chevy.

The three-time Supercars champion kicks off his slate with a trip to Circuit of The Americas on March 24. Then, it’s off to unfamiliar territory for the New Zealand native as he makes his Cup superspeedway debut on April 21 at Talladega. He will also compete in the playoff race at the 2.66-mile oval on Oct. 6.

Van Gisbergen will then compete in NASCAR’s longest race, the Coca-Cola 600, on May 26.

After winning his Cup Series debut in thrilling fashion at the Chicago Street Course last season, van Gisbergen will look to defend his crown in the Windy City on July 7. He’ll compete on his third and final road course at the Cup level on Sept. 15 as the series heads to Watkins Glen International at the midpoint of the Round of 16 in the playoffs.

Van Gisbergen’s final scheduled Cup race will take place at the start of the Round of 8 when the series returns out west to Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Oct. 20.
