LAS VEGAS, Nev. - NASCAR Winston West Series driver Austin Cameron made it two-for-two in 2002 with a win in the Orleans 222 at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Cameron, who dominated the season-opener, appeared content to follow the leader in this event.

He waited until late in the race to make his move for the lead. After attempting a pass on the outside, he slipped to the inside of Greg Pursley and charged into the lead on lap 197. Cameron pulled away, leaving his competition to battle for a top-five finish.

Sean Woodside finished second, with C.T. Hellmund taking third by a nose over Mike David. Scott Gaylord was fifth, while Pursley slipped to sixth at the finish. Rounding out the top 10 were Kevin Richards, Jeff Jefferson, Brandon Ash and Eric Norris.
