Jack Daniel's Racing's Rick Kelly repeated what Steve Owen did in race one, dominating from start to finish in race two of the of the L&H 500 at Phillip Island.
In fact, Kelly was even more dominant, opening up a five second gap after five laps, his margin only trimmed due to a late-race safety car period. Craig Lowndes took advantage of this but it was not enough as Kelly pulled away again to take the victory.
James Courtney was third for Jim Beam Racing, with the FPR cars of Steven Richards and Mark Winterbottom close behind, while Will Davison held on to finish sixth having come under heavy pressure in the opening laps from the cars behind him.
Jamie Whincup was the best placed of the cars who took their compulsory pitstop in race two in 14th place, and combined with co-driver Steve Owen's win in race one that secured pole position for tomorrow's 113 lap L&H 500.
Alongside him on the front row will be race two winner Rick Kelly with Owen Kelly, followed by championship leader James Courtney with Warren Luff, with Craig Lowndes/Mark Skaife and Garth Tander/Cameron McConville completing the top five.
Jason Bargwanna's second place in race one netted him ninth on the grid with veteran Glenn Seton, just ahead of Steven Richards and James Moffat despite dramas in qualifying and the race for Moffat.
However, one of the dark horses for the race, Fujitsu Racing's Michael Caruso and Greg Ritter, will have a lot of work ahead of them, a DNF in race one and 22nd in race two forcing them to start from 31st position, last on the grid.
