DUNCAN WINS NASCAR WEST SERIES RACE IN COLORADO

ERIE, Colo. (June 2, 2007) -- Mike Duncan chased the leader early in the race, then held off a persistent rival and won the NAPA 150 NASCAR Grand National Division, West Series race at Colorado National Speedway today.

Duncan is a former series champion but the victory in Colorado was his first of the 2007 season. Duncan is also a former winner at CNS.

Goodyear is the exclusive tire supplier for the Grand National Division, which also includes the Busch East Series. The West Series schedule includes races on road courses, speedways and short tracks like the one in Colorado. For that reason, Goodyear groups the tracks and splits the tire combinations into the same groupings. The tires for the Grand National Division are of bias-ply construction.

Duncan started third and chased pole sitter Brian Ickler before finally leading for the first time on lap 85. Mike David chased Duncan for the remainder of the race and was credited with leading one lap, but Duncan held the top spot for the final 53 laps.

David finished second, about a third of a second behind the winner. Ryan Foster, Eric Richardson and Jason Bowles finished the top five.

Ickler's pole speed was 80.963 mph around the 3/8-mile oval.

David leads the championship standings with 999 points. Duncan is next with 891.
