Tim Slade will be back in Alliance Truck Parts colours for the BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown event at this weekends’ Hidden Valley Raceway. The Darwin Triple Crown has never been won by a driver since its inception in 2006.

This weekend marks a special milestone for Tim, competing in his 150th Supercars round!
