STOCKTON, Calif.-- After dashing into the early lead, Johnny Borneman went flag to flag to win the NASCAR Winston West Series NAPA Auto Parts 200 at Stockton (Calif.) 99 Speedway on Saturday night.

Borneman, who started on the outside of the front row, jumped into the lead at the drop of the green flag and maintained command throughout the 202-lap event on the high-banked quarter-mile oval.

While the 25-year-old driver was en route to claiming his first win of the year and the second of his career, a fierce battle ensued behind him.

Mike Duncan came out on top with the runner-up spot, followed by series rookie Mike David and Eric Norris. Fifth went to Kevin Richards. He was followed by Gene Woods, Greg Pursley, Brett Thompson and Brandon Ash-- all on the lead lap.

With his fourth-place finish, Norris extended his lead in the championship standings over Austin Cameron 1,169 to 1,094.
