2016 Adelaide 500 winner and South Australian-born Supercars driver Nick Percat will call Brad Jones Racing home until at least the end of the 2020 championship.
Percat, who is also a previous Bathurst winner, is in his second year with the Albury-based squad and currently sits 12th in the championship.
“When Brad and Kim told me they wanted to extend my contract I couldn’t have been happier,” Percat said.
“BJR is where I want to be and where I think I’ll get my best result.
“I know the results we have had so far this year are just the beginning, the whole team is working extremely hard to give me a winning package.
“I can’t wait to score my first race win with BJR and continue to improve the car, this will be the longest period of continuity I’ve had in my Supercar career. I believe that continuity is what wins races and lets you fight for championships.”
Percat has twice finished on the podium (in Melbourne) this year and his position in the championship has him pushing to enter the top 10.
Team owner Brad Jones said the opportunity to engage Percat until the end of 2020 afforded his team stability with the team continuing its current all-South Australian combo with Tim Slade.
"Nick’s commitment and pace for us is unquestionable, so we’re really happy to have that stability and consistency going forward with both Nick in Car 8 and Tim Slade in the Freightliner/Alliance Truck Parts Commodore,” Jones said.
“I feel like Nick has grown with us in his time here already and he fits into the team really well; I can’t wait to see what we can achieve as a group over the next three years.
