Pursley and Mayhew exchanged the lead four times over the final 36 laps of the 150-lap chase around Kern County’s half-mile oval.

Pursley, Mayhew and the remainder of the cars in the field raced on Goodyear tires. Goodyear is the exclusive tire supplier for the West Series, as well as for the K&N Pro Series East and the Canadian Tire Series. The three series share the same rulebook and race on the same line of tires.

Each tire Goodyear manufactures for the three regional series is constructed in Goodyear’s Innovation Center in Akron, Ohio. That is the same plant where Goodyear makes the tires used by NASCAR’s Cup, Nationwide and Truck series.

Pursley led the first 114 laps after starting on the pole. Mayhew wrested the lead away twice over the remaining laps, but Pursley finally had a chance to used lapped traffic to put Mayhew behind him for good and held on to win. The margin of victory was just .797 of a second.

Dylan Lupton finished second after Mayhew struggled with the lapped traffic and ended up third. Brandon McReynolds was fourth, followed by Jesse Little.

Pursley averaged 57.532 mph for the race distance. He averaged 99.015 mph during his pole-winning lap during time trials.

The championship standings look like the race did over the closing laps, with Pursley leading Mayhew, 216 points to 198.

Goodyear employs about 69,000 people at manufacturing plants and facilities in 22 nations. Based in Akron, Ohio, Goodyear is among the largest tiremakers in the world and is the worldwide leader in race tire innovation.
