YAKIMA, Washington -- It was a rags to riches story for Garrett Evans (E. Wenatchee, WA). On Saturday night at Yakima Speedway, Yakima, Wash. It was the riches for Evans with a win of the Wix Filters 125 presented by Yakima Grinding. After a last place finish at the previous stop for the ARCA West Q-Racing Late Model Challenge Series it was a very strong comeback for the Northwest Legend stock car racer.

Jeff Jefferson (Naches, WA) took the lead on lap 25 of the 125-lap feature. Leading until with just 3 laps to go when a broken master brake-cylinder sent him off the track and giving the lead to Evans. Erick Hargraves (Yakima, WA) finished second just ahead of Wes Rhodes (Yelm, WA).

LMCS point leader Gary Lewis (Bothell, WA) fell back as far as 18th when a driver error cut the engine off accidentally. A valiant recovery to finish 4th aided in his quest for a first ever LMCS Championship. Rick Thompson (Prosser, WA0 was fifth followed by Joe Constance (Mukilteo, WA). Jefferson recovered for a 6th place finish.

In the 25-lap feature for the ARCA West Truck Series, Steve Thompson (W. Richland, WA) had a spirited battle with his brother Rick to get his first win of the young race season. Jerry Chester (Prosser, WA) was third and young Daniel Moore (Snohomish, WA) finished fourth.

Next Up for the ARCA West Q-Racing Late Model Challenge Series will be at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon on Saturday June 2, 2007. The night will feature a 125-lap on the banked 3/8-mile oval.
