Dale Wood has been handed a 35-point penalty for opening lap contact with James Moffat in Race 15 at the Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint.

Moffat was spun as the pair battled towards the rear of the field at the Turn 3 hairpin in the opening stages of the 120km race.

While Wood went on to finish 23rd, Moffat eventually pitted on 21, with his Holden going to the garage for repairs before rejoining and finishing eight laps down in 28th.

Adding insult to injury, the #34 Commodore was dealt a 72 second post-race time penalty for failing to undertake a compulsory pitstop.

The pitstop rule for the race required each car to stop in its pit bay and change a minimum of two tyres.
