Mark Winterbottom slipped out after losing momentum, opening the door for Shane Van Giesbergen to take advantage and lead.
But Winterbottom caught van Gisbergen and Scott Pyke hit behind Anton De Pasquale.
When the safety car was deployed for six laps, Winterbottom was angry at what had happened.
“This sport sometimes scares me,” Winterbottom was heard in the Fox Sports report.
Five-time supercar champion Mark Skaife couldn’t believe his eyes at the end of the carnage.
“Shane swooped down and rushed in! Can he hold on? He was shot, and Pike told him to turn around,” Skeff said in the comment.
“That is absolute chaos.
“Anton left, they both hit each other. Wow, what a start!”
The crash also involved Todd Hazlewood, his teammate Jack Smith and Sydney’s Fabian Coulthard and Gary Jacobson.
Later, Chaz Mostert won the second victory of the season in the race.
“From the eighth place, I just hope I can pass the first round,” Most said, he eliminated the gap with Van Giesbergen by 56 points.
“I was lucky to get out of corner 1 in third place. I think this is a good result and I hope this car is fine.
“In the beginning I was quick… You were a little worried about the degradation.
“Honestly, I don’t know Shane, I don’t know what happened.
“When you can get them, we will get them. I’ve been on the other side many times.”
