BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Brett Thompson made a late-race charge to win the STARNURSERY.COM 150 at Mesa Marin Raceway on Sunday. He slipped past Mike Duncan just 13 laps from the finish and then held off a challenge from Mike David to score his first career win in the NASCAR Grand National Division, West Series.

Duncan dominated the competition on his home track - winning the Bud Pole Award and pacing the field for 137 laps. He began to fade, however, as Thompson began his charge to the front late in the race.

After taking the lead, Thompson then had to hold off David when a late-race caution set up a four-lap dash to the finish. Following Thompson and David to the line were Sean Woodside, Austin Cameron and Duncan.

Rounding out the top 10 were Tim Smith, Carl Harr, Daryl Harr, Scott Lynch and Tim Woods III.
