On the last restart of the race, race leaders Mike David and Eric Holmes roared side-by-side around the tight 3/8-mile with Greg Pursley nipping at their heels. Moses took the green flag in fifth position. On the second lap of the exciting Green, White, Checkered finish, David, Homes, and Pursley took the white flag and charged into turn one. David’s car spun as they came through turn two, leaving Moses to weave his way into second for the checkered flag.

Podium at Kyle West race: Moses Smith (L), Greg Pursley (C) and Eric HolmesMoses Smith, with his career-best finish in the Allstate Texas Thunder 150 also managed to earn the Coca-Cola “Move of the Race" award by improving his eleventh place starting position into the second place finish. In an emotional interview, Moses dedicated his race to Mike Curry, the #16 truck driver. “The team was really trying to win this race for Mike Curry, our truck driver who passed away last week. He would have loved this – we had a really good run.” Moses explained.

Mike Curry had been the Hasa Pool Products truck driver, team member, and friend since Moses signed on with Bill McAnally Racing two years ago. He will be greatly missed, not only by the team, his family and friends, but by all those who came to know him throughout the NASCAR Camping World Series.

The next NASCAR Camping World Series West race will be held at the All American Speedway in Roseville, California on April 4, 2009.
