Supercars championship leader Scott McLaughlin has made a solid return to the track following his big wreck at the Gold Coast 600 last month.
McLaughlin clocked the third-fastest time in Friday's practice at the Sandown 500 in Melbourne, finishing behind Penrite Racing's David Reynolds and Anton De Pasquale.
Reynolds clocked a new lap record at the 3.1km circuit with a one minute and 07.7779 second time.
De Pasquale was second-quickest in the half-hour session with a 1:07.8911 with McLaughlin third on the timesheets with a 1:07.9985.
The DJR Team Penske star was driving a brand-new Mustang after his high-speed crash on the streets of Surfers Paradise last month.
