A pair of late cautions pushed the NAPA Auto Parts 150 to 160 laps. Despite a fierce challenge from Mayhew on every lap, Sargeant was able to out-last the 33-year-old Atascadero, California Native. Sargeant’s Jefferson Pitts Racing teammate Noah Gragson brought the Alert I.D. Ford across the line for a third place finish. 2014 Sunoco Rookie of the Year winner, James Bickford finished fourth, and Chris Eggleston rounded out the top five.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will head to Irwindale, California for the King Taco Catering/NAPA Auto Parts 150 race at Irwindale Speedway on April 11th.
