V8 Supercars Drivers to Watch
Scott McLaughlin continued his unbelievable 2019 season with two victories at Darwin last week, extending what was already a comfortable lead atop the standings. He has now won 12 of 16 races this season and doesn’t look like slowing down any time soon, and he will head into this event with plenty of confidence.
Jamie Whincup had a slow start to the season but has gradually been working way into form, and he will see this weekend as a great time to make a move towards the top three. He has an unsurpassed record in Townsville, having won ten of the 21 races held there since 2009, and though he isn’t driving at near his best he will still be a danger this weekend.
David Reynolds is sitting in third place in the Supercars Championship, but he has not yet been able to make it over the line first in any race this year, having racked up a string of second, third and fourth place finishes. He has never won at Townsville before, but can he break two ducks this weekend by earning himself a maiden 2019 victory?S
