He will made the leap to the main game after six years in the Dunlop Super2 Series which included a successful title-winning season in 2016 with Tickford Racing.

“This is the biggest opportunity of my racing career and I can’t thank Rabble.Club and Kelly Racing enough for having faith in me,” said Jacobson.

“Ever since I was a kid, I dreamt of being a full-time Supercars driver. It is what I’ve always strived for, and now that I’ve made it, I feel good, but I feel like the job isn’t even half done. I have a lot to learn, but I’m up for the challenge.

“It’s a very exciting time, but I know that the real business starts at the test, so I’m putting every focus into making the most of my opportunity.”

Jacobson, whose day job is a school bus driver, will become the second rookie on the grid this year alongside Macauley Jones who will pilot the #21 Brad Jones Racing run Cooldrive entry.

The #3 Rabble.Club Nissan Altima is expected to be revealed today.
