Bryce Fullwood will start the opening Dunlop Super2 Series race at the Penrite Oil Sandown 500 from ARMOR ALL Pole after shading Jordan Boys late in qualifying.

The MW Motorsport driver's final run in the session yielded a 1:08.1697s, which proved 0.1692s clear of next-best Boys.

It marks Fullwood's second pole for the season and Boys' best grid start of his career, with a previous best of 10th and a season-best of 11th at Perth.

Fullwood topped the timesheets in Friday practice with a record-breaking lap and improved in qualifying, 0.0533 seconds quicker than his best from yesterday.

"It's taken me quite a while to get one, I felt like I've been so close leading up to Bathurst and then obviously awesome to get another one straight off the back of Bathurst," Fullwood said.

"Huge credit to the guys at MW Motorsport, the car has been an absolute rocket ship this season and I was fairly happy with my lap then, and absolutely stoked to come away fastest."

Eggleston Motorsport's Will Brown will start the race from third, ahead of Tickford Racing's Thomas Randle and Supercars enduro regular Jack Perkins.

As the 15-minute ARMOR ALL Qualifying got underway, it was Randle who set the early pace, before he was displaced by Fullwood and then Boys.

Boys was in first place for the bulk of the session and looked set to score a maiden pole with an impressive 1:08.3389s lap on a final run showdown, before Fullwood swept in.

Matt Stone Racing's Ash Walsh was sixth, ahead of Triple Eight duo Kurt Kostecki and Brenton Grove.

Fulwood's MWM teammate Tyler Everingham will start from ninth, ahead of the third Nissan driver, Zane Goddard who rounded out the top 10.

Dylan O'Keeffe, who made a sudden main game debut at the Gold Coast last month for Garry Rogers Motorsport, finished 12th.

Jack Smith will start from 13th, after shooting off at high-speed at Turn 1 in the SCT Logistics Holden Commodore.

The second-tier category has been let loose this weekend on Supercars’ super-soft tyre, the softer of the two available compounds.

The opening race will commence at 4:15pm local time, with another ARMOR ALL Qualifying and race to come tomorrow.
