Scandia, which backed the #14 at Symmons Plains, also returns for a second round, taking the bonnet sponsor placing on the car.
"I’m super excited to be back racing in my home state for the first time in 2021 and with the return support from TRG Transport Solutions,” South Australian-born Hazelwood said.
“It's fantastic to continue our relationship from last year and I’ll be giving it my all to get the South Australian supported Supercar to the front of the field.
“The Bend has been good to the team in the past and hopefully we can continue that success and score a bag of points.
"The key factor at Tailem Bend will be tyre management as we saw some bad tyre delamination on the soft tyre last year.
"If it’s like that again it’ll definitely make the racing interesting and it’s a real opportunity to score a strong result. I’m pumped and ready for the challenge.
“We’ve got to work a bit on our qualifying as we've been struggling to maximize our performance and every session this season we’ve ended up six or seven spots further back from our race pace which is hurting our results.
"On a positive note, we’ve passed cars in every race so far this year but we need to do better and hopefully The Bend is a turning point."
Tony Musolino, Managing Director of TRG Transport Solutions, said: "We are delighted to showcase our business on BJR’s Supercar for a second year running.
“TRG prides itself on giving back to the community by contributing to local sporting teams and events so it’s a pleasure to assist with this local race at The Bend and support SA’s own, Todd Hazelwood.
"We are honoured and proud to be a part of the BJR team and the 2021 Supercars Championship.”
The Repco Supercars Championship field will return to The Bend Motorsport Park this weekend the OTR SuperSprint across May 7-9. Tickets are on sale now.
The event will be broadcast live on Foxtel and will be streamed on Kayo with highlights on 7 and 7 Plus.
