Infant’s Friend driver Ash Walsh has taken his first V8 Supercars round win with victory in Round 2 of the 2013 Dunlop Series today at Barbagallo Raceway. He backed up his Saturday win with a hard fought 5th place in Race 2 and a sensible 2nd place in the final 20 lapper.

Race 2 was the Top 10 reverse grid race seeing Ash start from P10 after his win in Race 1.
