Jason Bright stepped back from full-time Supercars competition at the end of 2017, and then joined Lee Holdsworth at Preston Hire Racing for the '18 PIRTEK Enduro Cup.

Bright was a Supercars mainstay for nearly 20 years, having made his debut with Stone Brothers Racing in 1998, winning Bathurst that year.

He won Australian Formula Ford and Formula Holden titles in 1995 and '97, and put his Supercars career on hold for a US sojourn in 2000.

In addition to a race-winning Indy Lights campaign, Bright made his Champ Car debut on the Gold Coast, and contested the American Le Mans Series race in Adelaide in a Panoz.

He returned home full-time with the Holden Racing Team in 2001 then switched to Team Brock within the Walkinshaw umbrella, taking third in the standings in '01 and '04.

Bright joined Ford Performance Racing in 2005, and established his own operation, Britek Motorsport, which he moved to two years later.

Seven seasons from 2010 with Brad Jones Racing followed, Bright taking the squad's first Supercars victory at Barbagallo Raceway in '11.

His most successful season with BJR was 2013, taking four poles and two wins – including an emotional victory at Pukekohe to claim the Jason Richards Memorial Trophy – and seventh in the points.

After that stint with the Albury-based team, he returned to what was Ford Performance Racing for a final full-time campaign.
