Featherlite Southwest Series, NASCAR Touring: Veteran campaigner Darrell La Moure won his first Series race when he grabbed the Big O Tires 150 at Mesa Marin Raceway in Bakersfield, Calif. La Moure, who is perhaps the FSWS-NT version of Michael Waltrip, finally won on his 127th career attempt.

Goodyear is the only tire supplier for this Series.

La Moure averaged 57.754 mph for the 150-lap chase around the half-mile venue. He edged second-place finisher Craig Raudman by just .185 of a second.

Scott Brandt finished third, Nick Joanides took fourth and Bob Lyon was fifth.

Raudman, who won the Bud Pole Award in qualifying, continues to lead the championship point standings. Raudman has 2,161 points to 1,932 for second-place Auggie Vidovich II. La Moure is third with 1,873.
