The New Zealand driver Jason Richards will return to V8 Supercar racing this weekend after undergoing treatment for cancer.

Richards was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer in November.

34-year-old Richards will drive one of the Brad Jones Racing cars this weekend in Melbourne after Jason Bargwanna generously agreed to step aside for the none-championship AGP races.
