PORTLAND, Oregon. (July 19, 2009) – The return of the NASCAR Camping World Series West to Portland International Raceway featured a thrilling dash to the finish on the final lap, with Jim Inglebright taking the victory over Greg Pursley and Brian Wong in the BI-MART Salute to the Troops 125.

The Hasa team suffered from clutch issues which cut their practice short. However, with only a few practice laps completed, Moses managed to qualify the #16 Hasa Pool Products / White Flyer Toyota Camry in eighth position.

On race day, Moses’ car proved to be fast and he raced the first twenty-two laps within the top six. However, two flat tires forced the #16 Hasa Pool Products / White Flyer Toyota Camry down a lap. Later in the race, Moses became the victim of some contact among the leaders, which caused more damage to his car. The Hasa Team had to settle for a disappointing fourteenth place finish.

Hasa Fans Enjoy The Midway

The Hasa Hospitality tent held over eight-hundred Moses Smith race fans. The weather was warm and the food was delicious. The Hasa guests had an excellent view of the last corner of the course. Their cheers could be heard each time their Hasa driver maneuvered into their vision.

This event marked the return of the series to the 1.98-mile road course, which it last visited in 1986. Hershel McGriff, who won that race 23 years ago, was back at the age of 81 to defend his race title and finished 13th, just ahead of Moses.

The next event on the schedule for the NASCAR Camping World Series West will be at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah on August. 1, 2009.
