Woodside and Team Walker Motorsports finish fourth at Cajon, second top-five for 2002 season.

March 25, 2002 (Valencia, Calif.) - Sean Woodside and Team Walker Motorsports notched their second top-five for the 2002 season by taking the #45 NAPA Filters Chevrolet to a fourth-place finish in Saturday night's Coors Light "125" at Cajon Speedway, El Cajon, Calif.

The team also finished in fourth-place in the season-opening NASCAR Winston West Winter Heat presented by Bosch at Phoenix (Ariz.) International Raceway in early February.

Woodside worked his way forward from a mid-field starting position in the 41 minute, 125-lap sprint around Cajon's 3/8-mile oval. He had closed in on third-place finisher Frank Maronski Jr. by the end of the race and looked positioned to overtake him, but both drivers maintained their spots.

Woodside threaded his way through several accidents throughout the race, leaving his equipment intact for the push to the front.

"Cajon is a fun track," Woodside said. "When we head to Cajon, we know we can look forward to awesome short-track action and a great show for the fans. The entire team had a good day. They gave me a great car and helped me stay out of trouble on the track. It's really encouraging to have such a good start to the season."
