Dale Wood rejoins Kelly Racing this year, as Rick Kelly's partner for the PIRTEK Enduro Cup.

Wood entered Supercars in 2007 from Formula Ford, in the Dunlop Super2 Series with Greg Murphy Racing.

He impressed as a rookie, earning the Mike Kable Young Gun Award as the best first-year driver in Supercars.

A maiden taste of the main game came the next year in the enduros with Tasman Motorsport, and the opening half of the 2009 season with Kelly Racing.

Further enduro outings with Kelly Racing and Tony D'Alberto Racing followed, along with a return to Super2 in 2012.

Wood won the Super2 title in 2013 with MW Motorsport, and contested that year's long-distance races with Dick Johnson Racing's Chaz Mostert.

Four full-time Supercars seasons started in 2014, through two with Brad Jones Racing, and one each with Nissan Motorsport and Erebus Motorsport.

He started and finished a career-best third at Winton in 2014 and made that year's Top 10 Shootout at Bathurst.

With Erebus in 2017, Wood took a strong fourth at Bathurst with Chris Pither before linking with Tim Blanchard at BJR in '18.

Wood this year is contesting the enduros with Kelly Racing for the third time and first since 2010, alongside a Porsche Carrera Cup program.
