Closing in on his second consecutive Supercars title - currently 573 points ahead of his closest challenger with eight races to go - McLaughlin could find himself in a position where racing in Australia is no longer a challenge for him.

However, driving for American-owned DJR Team Penske, McLaughlin could find himself uprooted from Australian racing to head stateside, his employers also owning teams in NASCAR and IndyCar.

Speaking to media in promotion for this weekend's Pukekohe race, though, McLaughlin says that he's happy where he is - for now.

"I don't know, I'm going out there to try and do the best I can," McLaughlin said.

"What will be will be.

"I know I'm secure in Supercars at least for as long as I am with the team, we just signed a new deal.

"That's good, we'll worry about the rest later on."
