Nissan has confirmed it will remain in Supercars beyond this season - announcing a two-year deal to continue backing Kelly Racing.

Nissan has provided funding for Kelly Racing since 2013 followed suit after Holden announced it would continue to provide funding to Red Bull Racing Australia a couple of weeks ago.

The team has run four Nissan Altima V8s throughout that time.

The announcement, at Sandown Raceway ahead of this weekend's first endurance event, also saw veteran driver Michael Caruso extend his stay with the team for a further two years.

Both Kelly brothers - Rick and Todd - will continue racing for the team in 2017.
