Once again the V8 Supercars Australia put on quite the show and today was no different when Will Davison put the moves on Garth Tander to take the lead on lap 2 at Homebush.
Jamie Whincup helps teammate Craig Lowndes to victory at Homebush to allow him to hold second place in the points over Mark Winterbottom. Hot temperatures in Australia cause drivers to suffer heat exhaustion.
First Jamie Whincup did not make it into the top 10 chasing for the pole, and then Will Davison made unusual errors. Tim Slade is one happy pole winner in the V8 Supercars Australia season finale weekend.
Rain played a factor in the first qualifying for the Sydney 500.The track dried at the end but several top drivers will not have a shot at the pole; including Whincup!
