Raybestos Brakes Northwest Series, NASCAR Touring: Tom Sweatman slipped by Wes Rhodes with 33 laps to go and went on to win the Pepsi 125 at South Sound Speedway in Tenino, Wash. Sweatman edged points leader Kevin Hamlin by half a second.

Rhodes finished third and said, "Goodyear has a tire that we don't burn `em off every week, so I think we're going to be here for more."

Joe Benedetti finished fourth and rookie Troy Conrad took fifth. Conrad is now just two points behind John Bender in the race for Rookie of the Year.

Sweatman won the Bud Pole Award, averaging 96.726 mph around the 3/8-mile oval. He averaged 55.382 mph during the race.
