Will Davison has laid down the challenge for the other 27 cars tomorrow, with a dominant showing in the second qualifying race, ahead of the Wislon Security Sandown 500 race. 

The Pepsi Max FPR driver got the jump on Red Bull's Jamie Whincup, who was alongside, and led from start to finish to take ARMOR ALL Pole Position for tomorrow.

Plenty unfolded in the 20-lap race as Garth Tander, starting from fourth, did not get off the line. Cars fanned out on track to get around the stranded Commodore.

An incident followed at turn one, seeing Maro Engel’s Mercedes and Dean Fiore’s Commodore turned around off track.

The practice lap record had continually been lowered at the Wilson Security Sandown 500, and the race lap record was also broken with nine cars going quicker than the previous time – and Davison amazingly recording a 1min09.4118, 17 laps into the race.

A battle ensued between Chaz Mostert and Mark Winterbottom in the closing laps – and while the young gun held his own, a determined Frosty got by to claim fourth.

The top 10 was rounded out by Reynolds in sixth, Courtney, Slade, McLaughlin and Todd Kelly.

The main series V8 Supercars drivers will be joined by their co-drivers for tomorrow's endurance race, the first of the PIRTEK Enduro Cup – click here for driver pairings.
