Jack Perkins teams up with James Courtney for a fourth PIRTEK Enduro Cup in 2018, for what is now 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 Fame member 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 but finished second in Super2 with Sonic Motor Racing in '11.

In 2011, he reunited the famous Perkins/Ingall combination, co-driving with Russell Ingall at Paul Morris Motorsport.

Perkins spent the next two years co-driving with Garry Rogers Motorsport and raced Super2 in 2013 with Eggleston Motorsport, catching 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.
