Last Year's Event

Harraka started from the pole, while Gomez started on the outside of the front row. They swapped the lead of the race four times, with Harraka leading 125 of the 160 laps. He won by a margin of .569 seconds. Gomez crossed the finish line in second, but was later penalized to last place. Josh Combs was credited with second in his first start championship series race Grape King/Sunrise Ford/Lucas Oil Ford. Gary Lewis also had great results in his first NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race - coming away with a third-place finish in the SEFNCO Communications/Montana Raceway Park Chevrolet. David Mayhew recovered from two incidents to finish fourth in the MMI Services/Ron's Rear Ends/KHI Chevrolet. Luis Martinez Jr">Luis Martinez Jr took fifth.

Eric Holmes, who was shooting for a third straight win in the Roseville event, suffered a broken axle and finished 17 laps off the pace in 21st position.
Up Next: Miller Motorsports Park
The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West heads to Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah for an event on April 30.
It will mark the fifth annual visit by the series to the massive road course. Unlike previous years when the series competed on the 3.048-mile outer course, however, this season drivers will tackle the 2.2-mile layout at MMP.
The four series visits to Tooele have produced four different winners. Patrick Long, meanwhile, is the only driver with multiple poles in series action at MMP. He won the pole there the past two years.
