Maiolo, the defending series champion, leads the points battle with 1680 points heading into the Round 11 clash at the Perth Motorplex on Saturday February 10.
JK is second on 1636 points and will need to string together a series of podium finishes, and hope Maiolo and the LJM Racing, Myalup WA crew finishes well down the order to close the gap.
Maiolo has won the last two season championships – Kendrick is yet to win one.
So far this season Kendrick has claimed four heat race wins and won a feature race at the Motorplex on January 1.
