Achieving his first V8 Supercars race with at the Gold Coast in 2013, Reynolds continued his rise on the back of a strong 2012, when he made the switch from Kelly Racing to Rod Nash’s #55 The Bottle-O Falcon run by FPR.

Finishing runner-up to Jamie Whincup at Bathurst and taking his first career ARMOR ALL Pole Position in Townsville clearly stood out as highlights and showed the dry-wit Reynolds displays out of the car is very different to the competitive driver in the car.

Reynolds won the Australian Formula Ford Championship in 2004 driving for the well-known Sonic Motor Racing squad, before graduating to the Porsche Carrera Cup with the Melbourne-based team.

Three seasons in the one-make series culminated in becoming champion in 2007, the same year where he made his V8 Supercar debut. Originally to drive for the Toll HSV Dealer Team, he was moved to the Supercheap Auto/PWR team to drive alongside Cameron McConville, however missed out on a drive at Bathurst when the car failed on the warm-up lap.

He moved into the Dunlop Series in 2008 and rounded out the year with two podium finishes and fourth place in the Championship, earning him a berth for the endurance events with Paul Dumbrell at Walkinshaw Racing.

Reynolds then stepped up to drive the Bundaberg Red Commodore for Walkinshaw Racing full-time in 2009 before being moved into a part-time endurance driver role with the organisation for 2010.

He returned to V8 Supercars in 2011 with Kelly Racing before moving to The Bottle-O Racing Team in 2012.
