2020 Supercars Townsville Supersprint race results

Jamie Whincup scored a double win in the opening leg of the Townsville Supersprint to slash the points deficit to championship leader Scott McLaughlin.

In Race 1, Whincup got a clean start from pole position to lead the field into Turn 1 and was then able to carve a three-second lead, enough to prevent Chaz Mostert from undercutting him when the Walkinshaw Andretti driver pitted on Lap 16.

The Triple Eight Holden driver eventually won the race by a comfortable margin of 6.885s, while Mostert slipped behind the Tickford Holden of Cam Waters in the final laps of the race.

McLaughlin recovered from a difficult qualifying session to take seventh at the flag, his charge aided by by a multi-car collision at Turn 2 on the opening lap.

Race 2 was more of the same for Whincup as he secured another lights-to-flag victory, with Mostert finishing second in his WAU Holden.

McLaughlin recovered from another poor qualifying to finish sixth and limit the points loss to Whincup.

The DJR Penske driver bounced back in the final race of the weekend to win from pole position, while chief rival Whincup finished two spots behind in third.

Whincup's Triple Eight teammate Shane van Gisbergen managed a best finish of third across the three races.
