A championship win would also be Triple Eight's seventh title since 2008 while Story's squad last won with James Courtney in 2010 as Dick Johnson Racing.
Both drivers and their teams, though, will face the unknown of a brand-new, 2.6km street circuit.
“We have to go for it, we have to throw caution to the wind, so to speak, and give it the best shot we possibly can,” Story said.
“There’s a lot we can do in prep, there’s a lot we’ve been doing and thinking about, in having access to the topography of the circuit and knowing what the layout was going to be. There’s a lot you can do on computer tools like that.
“In addition to that, it’s a good opportunity for our engineering group to go down there a little bit early, and understand the layout’s all about.
“Know where the grates are, it’s a street circuit, of course, vicissitudes that are associated with that there that we have to take encounter as well.
“There’s a lot of things we’ll be doing in the lead-up to that event to give it everything we’ve got.”
