David Mayhew brought the fans to their feet as he made a daring pass by Dylan Lupton, last year's winner, in Turn 4 on the final lap of the race to score his third NASCAR K&N Pro Series West victory of the year Saturday.

As the field took the white flag lap, a blanket could have been laid across the top three Lupton, Mayhew and pole-sitter Brandon McReynolds were all racing for the lead.

Mayhew was able to get on the outside of Lupton going in to Turn 4, holding on for his seventh career win. Mayhew's other two wins this season were at Stockton and Iowa Speedways.

McReynolds was able to advance a spot to finish in second with Lupton having to settle for a disappointing third. James Bickford and Giles Thornton completed the top five.

Gracin Raz, Tyler Tanner, Thomas Martin, Dan Moore and Austin Reed rounded out the top 10.
