Nissan Motorsport driver Todd Kelly will race with another new look after Trucksales took major backing the #7 Nissan Altima at the Winton SuperSprint.

The Supercars veteran recently returned from a jet ski trip from Victoria to Tasmania and will feature another updated look for his car as he hopes to continue the team's recent strong showings at Winton.

Kelly, who is also Nissan Motorsport's co-owner, is known to drive the outfit's transporter on occasion.

"Last year I got to drive to the track and around the circuit, but I haven’t been in the truck for a little while now, so I’m probably a little rusty," said Kelly.

"But I’m surely about due to blow the cobwebs off and get behind the wheel soon.

"I am very fortunate to have the support of carsales and their entire network.

"All their different platforms cover most of my interests and I’ve loved trucks ever since I was a young boy.

"Back in Mildura, my parents had trucks. I remember driving around the property and having a ball."

Kelly, who has driven the team's truck to Darwin and back from Townsville has expressed an interest to do the drive to Perth for a future event.

"Once you have a love and passion for machinery like that, you have it for life," he added.

"Fortunately, back when I first got my license, changing gears in a truck was not too foreign to a race car gearbox in a lot of ways.

"You just had to make sure you’re at the right revs for it to go in.

"But with the two Mack SuperLiners we have, all you do is press the D button and relax and enjoy the ride."
