NASCAR Winston West Series:

Before the running of the NAPA 150 at Tri-City Raceway in West Richland, Wash., Jason Jefferson was what racers term a veteran rookie. Jefferson, 26, had won races at the track in his weekly racing Late Model car and in the Raybestos Brakes Northwest Series. The NAPA 150 was his first start in a Winston West car.

Now Jefferson is what racers call a Winston West Series winner. He beat series veteran Kevin Richards to the finish of the 150-lap race by just .535 of a second. Jefferson averaged 74.586 mph.

Richards finished second, despite winning the Bud Pole Award with a lap averaging 95.541 mph, exactly matching the series record at the track.

Scott Gaylord finished third in the race, followed by Mark Reed and Jeff Jefferson, the winner's brother.

Steve Portenga leads the standings with 779 points, while Jim Inglebright is second with 748.
