Fullwood, BJR strike multi-year deal

BRYCE Fullwood will remain at Brad Jones Racing until at least the end of the 2025 Repco Supercars Championship after inking a two-year contract extension.

The news comes with Fullwood in the midst of a career year; he holds ninth in the championship, which has helped BJR be on track for third in the teams’ standings.

Next season will mark the Territorian’s fifth in the main game and third with BJR (after an initial two-year tenure at Walkinshaw Andretti United).

“It’s awesome to be back with BJR for next year,” said Fullwood.

“So far 2023 has been a great showing of what we are capable of. We have a really good, solid crew on our car and I have a lot of faith in what they’re able to achieve and we have a great base from this year to build from.”

Also confirmed is that the 2019 Super2 champion will retain Middy’s Electrical major backing on his #14 Camaro into next year.

“It’s even better to continue to have Middy’s Electrical with us for 2024, they’ve been with me and my family for as long as I can remember, and I couldn’t be more excited to have them with us for next year,” Fullwood added.

“I’m so grateful for the support from everyone at Middy’s – they really are just one big family and it’s great to be a part of it.”

Team owner Brad Jones praised Fullwood and spoke highly of what’s to come.

“Bryce has performed exceptionally this year. Keeping him in the BJR fold was important to us, we all work so well together, and he’s shown throughout this year what is achievable,” said Jones.

“There have been a lot of new challenges thrown at Bryce this year and he’s handled them incredibly well. I’m proud to see the development and growth of Bryce as a driver and he’s a valuable asset for us.

“Middy’s Electrical and BJR have many, many similarities in the way we run our businesses and our core values of family, loyalty and trust. It is an honour to be able to work beside them on and off track to achieve our goals.

“2023 has been a challenging year in many respects but it has also been incredibly rewarding – to see our entire team pull together four brand new cars and be where we are now in the championship has been very satisfying. It’s a testament to our team that Middy’s are continuing their support for another year.”

BJR now should have continuity in its lead garage for the foreseeable future, with Andre Heimgartner also staying in 2024 and hinting that he’s under lock and key for multiple years beyond that.
