Jack Daniel's Racing's Todd Kelly has finished 11th in the 200km Sunday race of the Phillip Island 300.
Teammate Rick Kelly had a tough day with a ruptured radiator water hose ending his hopes after just nine of the 45 lap race.
Todd Kelly qualified in 11th place, but an early safety car (lap #5) and slick work from the Jack Daniel's Racing crew had him up one place, and fourth in-line of the cars that made their stops.
Strong speed had Kelly maintaining his position and through the final pit stop cycle on lap #25, he made his fuel and tyre stop from fifth place.
Two further safety cars compressed the field and Todd Kelly was holding onto ninth position. Despite driving on heavily worn tyres, he did his best to battle with the cars around him and only dropped two spots before the chequered flag.
On the other side of the garage it was a far shorter race. After qualifying 13th, Rick Kelly also came to the pits on the early safety car. However, upon rejoining the race he was called to the pits with an overheating engine.
The crew quickly diagnosed the issue with the radiator hose. Despite their best efforts to repair the issue 10 laps had already been lost and after re-joining the race for just one lap it was decided that further repairs would be required, so the Jack Daniel's Commodore was retired from the race.
In terms of the championship Rick Kelly sits 10th in the standings while Todd Kelly is 12th.
The next round of the V8 Supercars is at Darwin's Hidden Valley on 15-17 June.

"At the end there I just didn't have the car to do it," said Todd Kelly.
"I was hanging on for dear life just trying to maintain position and keep the guys behind me that had better pace at the finish.
"At times the car was pacey, but if the balance is just a little bit out, it doesn't look after its tyres; especially at the end of a stint.
"It is good points and certainly gives us somewhere to aim for at the next race."

"A tough day today which is a bummer," said Rick Kelly.
"We missed the mark in qualifying and really wanted to move ahead in the race.
"We got a good start moving up a couple of spots, but it quickly turned sour after that.
"We sat in the pits working on the issue and that was not what any of us wanted.
"I can't fault the crew's efforts in trying to get us back out there quickly. However, a quick fix was not going to do us any good 10 laps down, so it was better to park it."
