New Zealand driver Jason Richards may be battling cancer but he's still won a V8 Supercar race.

Richards made his return to race driving for the first time since he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer in November, and the 34-year-old produced an inspiring performance to take out race two in the second-tier Development Series at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide.
