Garry Jacobson has received a three-place grid penalty for impeding Scott McLaughlin during qualifying for Race 24 at the Robson Civil Projects Townsville SuperSprint.
McLaughlin tagged the back of a slow-moving Jacobson at the exit of the final corner, leaving the Shell V-Power Racing Mustang to start 10th.
Jacobson though qualified last, meaning his grid penalty will be served at a future event.
The second-year main game driver apologised to McLaughlin after the session, taking full responsibility for the situation.
David Reynolds has meanwhile been given a two-place grid penalty for impending Andre Heimgartner's Kelly Racing Mustang.
Heimgartner came across both Penrite Racing Holdens at the exit of Turn 7, aborting his lap as a result.
Reynolds qualified 19th for Race 24 and will start 21st, while teammate Anton De Pasquale escaped sanction and lines up fourth.
