Two-time outright Le Mans 24 Hour winner, World Endurance Championship champion and reigning WeatherTech Sportscar GTLM champion to boot, New Zealander Earl Bamber is going Nascar racing.

Bamber is going to tackle the Daytona road course on August 15 in the No 21 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Camaro in the Xfinity series.

Bamber will become the first Kiwi to race in a top-level championship. The Xfinity Series sits just under the Nascar Cup Series, but sees a number of Cup Series drivers also race in it.

He joined Mike Hosking to discuss his massive career move.
