LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Jim Inglebright made a late-race charge back to the front to win the Orleans 222 at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday night.

The victory marked Inglebright's first win in only three races in the NASCAR Grand National Division, Winston West Series.

Inglebright, who dominated the first half of the rough and tumble event on the 3/8-mile paved oval, lost the lead on lap 151 and began to fade. He quickly recovered, however, and made his way back to the front - taking the lead from Mike Duncan on lap 200.

C.T. Hellmund finished on Inglebright's heels in second, with Mark Reed close behind in third. Fourth place went to Steve Portenga, while Gene Woods took fifth.

The win moved Inglebright into the early lead in the championship standings for the series.
