In 2020, Hazelwood claimed a maiden podium in Sydney and a maiden pole in Townsville, with the young gun battling at the front with aplomb.
The South Australian native has risen through the ranks since starting in karting in 2003, with the Hazelwood family well-known for their sausage sizzle fundraising efforts.
Hazelwood won numerous titles in both dirt and sprint karting before progressing to Formula Ford and Formula 3.
During his 2013 Formula 3 season, Hazelwood won the reality television series Shannons Supercar Showdown, landing a test driver role with Ford Performance Racing for ’14.
He also embarked on his first full Dunlop Super2 Series campaign with Matt Stone Racing in 2014, guiding an FG Falcon to an impressive eighth overall.
From there, he rose to fourth in 2015, third in ‘16 and finally, champion in ’17.
With lessons learnt and new hardware secured, the combination took big steps forward in 2019, headlined by qualifying fourth at Townsville and finishing fifth at Pukekohe.
He was forced to fight for his future though as MSR opted to go a different direction.
A new home presented itself at BJR, with Hazelwood stepping into the #14 Commodore previously driven by Tim Slade.
After two topsy-turvy seasons, Hazelwood returned to MSR, with the Super2 title-winning combination brought together once again.
