Moses Finishes In Fourth

NKNPS West Race at Portland Road Course

by Lee Elder, Goodyear Racing

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Luis Martinez slipped into the lead on the last lap and won the Bi-Mart Salute To The Troops 125 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race at Portland International Raceway.

Martinez alertly took advantage when race leader David Mayhew spun in turn 12 on the final lap around Portland’s 1.967 road racing gem. It was the final drama of a green-white-checkers finish.

Goodyear is the exclusive tire provider for the K&N Pro Series East and West programs, as well as for the NASCAR Canadian Tires Series. The bias-ply tires Goodyear supplies the three series come from the same line, allowing competitors in NASCAR’s top development programs to race interchangeably without the need to learn about differing tire packages.

Eric Holmes, the former series champion, finished second to Martinez, just .352 of a second behind the winner. Derek Thorn started 11th and finished third. Moses Smith was fourth and Dave Smith took fifth. Martinez averaged 93.424 on his best qualifying lap.

It was a big points night for everyone except championship leader Greg Pursley. Pursley led the race when mechanical woes struck, knocking him out of the race on lap 46. He finished 26th in the big 30-car field. Pursley, who set a record with his fast start this season, still leads with 1,550 points. Moses Smith is next with 1,317.
