Dale Wood

Dale Wood is the Nissan Motorsport new boy and will be driving the #96 Altima for the 2016 V8 Supercars Championship. 

Dale commenced his full-time V8 Supercar career in 2009 with the newly formed Kelly Racing team, having raced previously for Greg Murphy Racing in the Development Series. After a series of endurance drives with a variety of teams, Dale returned to the Development Series where we took the title in 2013.

A return to the main game in 2014, with Brad Jones Racing, resulted in Dale achieving a podium finish and showing glimpses of strong race pace. In a home-coming of sorts, Kelly Racing has now been transformed into Nissan Motorsport and Dale will take the wheel of a factory-backed V8 Supercar for the first time.
