It was a weekend of contrasting fortunes for the Border's Supercars contingent in Darwin with David Reynolds securing third spot in the championship with two podium finishes.
But down the other end of pit lane, Brad Jones Racing had all three of its cars involved in major crashes - requiring a huge effort from the crew to get them on the grid for both races.
Reynolds continues to shine in 2019, to the point of being the highest-ranked Holden in the championship, with only the two Penske Mustangs ahead of him after 10 rounds.
His second and third-place finishes pushed him past Shane Van Gisbergen into third, which is also where he finished his best ever Supercar season in 2015.
Reynolds was quick from the first practice, qualifying second on Saturday and third on Sunday to set up his double podium weekend.
He then drove superbly in both races to bag 267 points and reinforce his place as one of the only real threats to the Penske domination.

"Saturday was really good, I had a great qualifying session and ended up second fastest and not far off pole," Reynolds said.
"I got an average start in the race, we went three-wide down into turn one and Anton (teammate Anton de Pasquale) was on my outside after he got a really good start too.
"We were hanging onto third and pitted at the same time as Will Davison in second.
"We completed a better stop, and that forced them into an unsafe release - it was a remarkable job by the crew and that's what ultimately gave us the podium.
"Sunday was much the same - I am super happy, I had such a great day - from qualifying to the race.
"I got a good start and ended up second by the first corner, I also tried to have a lunge at Scott, but he was too far in front.
"It was going well, and the guys in the pits did the best job, they had perfect stops and we were the fastest cars in pit lane.
"My car was much better than it was on Saturday, we tuned it up overnight and second was a good result for everyone's hard work."
BJR's season had been tracking solidly with Tim Slade and Nick Percat inside the top ten and Macca Jones finding his feet in his first Supercars season.
They struggled for pace in qualifying, and, on the first lap of Saturday's race, Slade was punted off and into the fence, all but destroying the front of his BJR racer.
It was a late night for the pit crew to get the car ready for Sunday - Percat went on to finish 12th and Jones 22nd.
But if the BJR boys thought they had done all their repairs for the weekend, they were wrong.
In Sunday's qualifying session Percat and Jones both made driving errors at the quick turn 10 and put their cars into the wall - Percat front on and then seconds later, Jones went in backwards.
Percat went on to finish a credible 15th - up ten places from where he started to remain eighth in the championship, with Slade slipping out of the top ten to 11th.
