Scott McLaughlin continues to establish himself as one of the most accomplished race car drivers in the world as he begins his eighth season with Team Penske and his fourth season competing in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES (NICS) in 2024.  McLaughlin produced his best NICS championship finish in 2023 as he closed the season ranked third in the standings while driving the No. 3 Chevrolet with support from Pennzoil, DEX Imaging, Gallagher, Good Ranchers, Sonsio, XPEL, Odyssey Battery and Freightliner. The New Zealander has improved his championship finish in each of his three previous full-time NICS seasons after transitioning from the Australian Supercars Series - the popular full-fender, touring car series where he was a three-time champion and winner of its biggest race, the Bathurst 1000. 

In 2023, McLaughlin continued to build on his impressive resume as a Team Penske driver. The 30-year-old native of Christchurch, New Zealand won at Barber Motorsports Park in April for his 52nd victory since he joined Team Penske in 2017. The victory also placed him third on the team's all-time wins list behind Brad Keselowski and Team Penske Hall of Fame driver, Mark Donohue. In addition to his win at Barber last season, McLaughlin powered to the pole position at World Wide Technology Raceway for his first career NTT P1 Award on an oval track. He and teammate Will Power enter the 2024 season tied for the most pole positions won in Team Penske history with 64. McLaughlin enjoyed a remarkably consistent season in 2023 as he recorded 14 top-10 finishes in 17 races. He also tied series champion Alex Palou for the most laps completed (2,258) over the course of the season.
