Team Triton's Toby Price took out the Queensland Raceway ECB SuperUtes Series finale, while EFS Mazda driver Ryal Harris secured the round honours.

After finishing sixth and first in the opening two races, Price completed his weekend with a victory, to be second for the event.

The two-time Dakar Rally champion finished 2.4796 seconds ahead of Harris, with Craig Woods a close third, ahead of Cameron Crick and Tom Alexander in fifth.

With the weekend's results, Harris and Alexander are now equal on points, both with 706, leading into the sixth round of the series at Bathurst.

From the rolling start, polesitter Harris controlled proceedings in the EFS 4x4 Mazda BT-50, with Price's Mitsubishi team-mate Cameron Crick a close second.

Team Triton's Crick applied pressure early, with Price close behind in third, until the Mitsubishi driver made a move on the race leaders at Turn 3 on lap two.

Price took the lead of the race from there and pressed on with ease, controlling the contest for the remaining eight laps.

Harris held off Woods and Crick to finish second for the race and round, with Woods third at the chequered flag and Crick fourth for the race and third for the round.

Supercars veteran Steven Richards was seventh aboard the ACDelco-backed Holden Colorado, ahead of Ben Walsh in the Fat Freddy's Toyota Hilux.

Western Sydney Motorsport team boss Craig Thompson finished ahead of Ranger Racing's Christopher Formosa and Mazda driver Ben Falk, who rounded out the top 10.

Jeff Waters ended his final race of the weekend 11th, while Charlotte Poynting was 12th in the third Mitsubishi Triton.

The sixth round of the ECB SuperUtes Series will take place on October 10-13, as part of the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
