Oil Problem Hampers

Saturday’s O'Reilly Auto Parts 200 marked the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West's first visit to the Bullring since 2003. The weather peaked at 96 degrees and was windy. The Bullring offered family entertainment at family-friendly prices. The concession stand features $1 hot dogs, $1 sodas and $1 beer. However, Las Vegas, Nevada was not too lucky for the #16 Hasa Pool Products / NAPA Filter Toyota Camry.

After qualifying thirteenth, Moses had patiently worked his way into eighth position. Unfortunately, his charge to the front was hampered on lap 81 when his car went up in smoke.

“What a tough night for us. We had a good car, but went eleven laps down when I had to come in to fix a low oil problem.” Moses finished the race in twentieth place.

The O’Reilly Auto Parts 200 will air on SPEED on Thursday, June 23 at 6 p.m. ET.
The next event on the 2011 schedule for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will be the Thunder Valley Casino Resort 200 at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif., on Saturday, June 25.

Greg Pursley leads the championship standings with 920 points. He is followed by Moses Smith with 719, Martinez with 715, David Mayhew with 701 and Brett Thompson with 686. Completing the top 10 are Self at 683, Holmes at 657, Jonathon Gomez at 647, Daryl Harr at 631 and Kwasniewski at 578.
