QUEENSLAND Raceway favourite Craig Lowndes has equalled Mark Skaife's record as the most successful Holden driver of all time with his victory at the Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint. 

In doing so Lowndes also brought up his 105th career win and again denied teammate Jamie Whincup his 100th Supercars win.

Lowndes sits alongside Skaife as the most successful driver for Holden, each driver having registered 80 wins for the manufacturer.
