Wood entered V8 Supercars in 2007 when he competed in the Fujitsu DVS V8 Supercar with Greg Murphy Racing. He impressed during his debut season, ultimately earning the Mike Kable Young Gun Award as the best first year driver in the category.

In 2008 Wood had a taste of the V8 Supercars Championship, co-driving for Sprint Gas Racing, and then earned a full-time drive with Kelly Racing in 2009, running the first 10 races solo and co-driving with Jack Perkins at the endurance rounds.

After another endurance season with Kelly Racing he then moved to the co-driver seat at Wilson Security Racing teaming with Tony D’Alberto. The pair finished ninth at the year's Bathurst 1000.

Wood re-entered the Dunlop Series in 2012 with Greg Murphy Racing, to come home sixth inthe Championship.

The following year was a highlight, with Wood switching Dunlop Series teams to Matthew White Racing and winning the drivers’ championship. He also completed the endurance season as a co-driver with Chaz Mostert in a DJR Falcon, the two a promising combination.

Wood again stepped up into the V8 Supercars Championship for 2014 with Brad Jones Racing, with a podium finish at Winton and a top 10 qualifying effort and shootout attempt at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 highlights.

This year he is back with the Kellys, set to drive a Nissan Altima in the 2016 V8 Supercars Championship.
