Jack Perkins teams up with James Courtney for a fifth PIRTEK Enduro Cup in 2019, with Walkinshaw Andretti United.

The pair grabbed a victory together on the Gold Coast in 2015, Perkins' maiden Supercars win coming in his first season with the Holden outfit.

The son of Supercars Hall of Famer Larry, Perkins has amassed plenty of experience of his own, since entering the Dunlop Super2 Series from Formula Ford in 2006.

He graduated to the main game in 2007 in an all-rookie line-up with Shane Price, but was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes late in the year and stepped down.

Told he may never race again, Perkins came back the following year and scored two eighth-place finishes with Nathan Pretty in the enduros.

He returned to the championship full-time with Kelly Racing in 2009, was limited to the enduros in '10 with Stone Brothers Racing.

In 2011, Perkins finished second in Super2 with Sonic Motor Racing and reunited the famous Perkins/Ingall combination, co-driving with Russell Ingall at Paul Morris Motorsport.

Two years as a Garry Rogers Motorsport co-driver and a 2013 Super2 campaign with Eggleston Motorsport caught the eye of Charlie Schwerkolt for a main game return.

In an FPR-run Falcon, Perkins made the Top 10 Shootout at Bathurst, before shifting back to co-driver duties in 2015 with what was then the Holden Racing Team.

With Courtney, he claimed a second Supercars podium on the Gold Coast last year.
