Matt Payne will go up against five drivers competing for the Dunlop Super2 Series title come the final round in Adelaide at the start of next month.
The Kiwi driver is currently 132 points off series leader Declan Fraser and just 57 points off second place-sitter Zak Best.
Cameron Hill is 33 points behind the Kiwi while Tyler Everingham rounds out the top five, 39 points behind Payne.
The five drivers have jostled for positions throughout the season with Payne even leading the championship earlier on after Best crashed out in Perth.
However, the Grove Racing driver had his own misfortunes which saw him drop behind Fraser.
With such a small points gap between the top five, no one will be holding back in Adelaide.
Payne will have his work cut out for him though as he has never driven the circuit before.
“I’ve never been [to Adelaide], first time for me. But everyone’s going to be going for it,” Payne said speaking to Supercars.
Regardless, his solid performance throughout this season gives him confidence going into the final round.
“It’s been going really well so far,” he added about his season so far.
He admits he has made a few mistakes throughout the year but still remains in a good position as it is.
“It’s certainly going to be an action-packed weekend.”
No matter his result this year, Payne will move to the main Supercars championship with Penrite Racing in 2023.
The Dunlop Super2 Series will be held alongside the main Supercars Championship at the VALO Adelaide 500 from December 1 to 4.
