Bryce Fullwood says his focus is 'staying out of trouble' in the Dunlop Super2 Series, rather than worrying about his title bid.

Fullwood rejoined MW Motorsport in 2019 for his fifth Super2 season and currently sits first in the points, with four race wins to his name.

In Townsville, Fullwood claimed a perfect 300-point weekend to extend his lead to 133 points over Nissan team-mate Zane Goddard.

His victory in the opener came after penalties for first-across-the-line finisher Thomas Randle, before Fullwood put an assertive move on Tim Blanchard in Sunday's second leg.

"The car was absolutely awesome all weekend," Fullwood said of Townsville.

"I think we probably didn't have the qualifying speed, but the race pace was awesome and it showed.

"I'm really fortunate and really happy; it's a credit to the guys at MW Motorsport, they've given me an absolute rocket this year and that showed.

"I'm not really thinking about the championship, I'm really just trying to stay out of trouble, finish every race and [the championship will] do its own thing."

After three events and seven races, Fullwood's lowest result is a fourth-place finish recorded in Perth.

The 21-year-old claimed his maiden Super2 victory in the Adelaide opener and has been atop the standings since.

Fullwood is the only driver to have finished on the round podium at each event so far, but believes the level of competition is picking up.

"We came out of the box really well in Adelaide and it's one of those categories, and Supercars is the same, you just can't stop, you have to keep moving forward," Fullwood said.

"As soon as you stop moving forward you get swamped.

"We are always trying to move forward and I think Adelaide we sort of caught everyone napping a little bit, the car was absolutely awesome, down to the MWM guys again.

"Everyone has certainly stepped it up, Perth was tougher again and absolutely Townsville wasn't made easy for us."

The fourth round of the 2019 Dunlop Super2 Series takes place on July 26-28, as part of the Century Batteries Ipswich SuperSprint at Queensland Raceway.

Fullwood will contest the PIRTEK Enduro Cup later this year with Kelly Racing, sharing the Plus Fitness Nissan with Andre Heimgartner.
