The remarkable season continues for Greg Pursley.

Pursley rebounded from having to make a pit stop while leading early in the Evergreen 200 and was able to pass his teammate Dylan Kwasniewski with a dozen laps remaining and hold on to win his sixth NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race of the season.

Kwasniewski finished second behind his teammate with Moses Smith third and Eric Holmes fourth. Daryl Harr completed the top five in the first NASCAR K&N Pro Series West event at the track since 2008.

The first caution flag of the race was thrown on Lap 59 for debris. Pursley made his stop and restarted 11th when the race went back to green on Lap 65.

Purlsey, who now has nine career wins in the series, moved up to fifth by the halfway break and moved up through the top five until he passed Holmes for second on Lap 106.

Kwasniewski led from Lap 62 until Pursley made the pass on Lap 188 for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year Contender. His runner-up showing is his second of the year with the first coming at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in June.

Justin Philpott was sixth with Naima Lang finishing seventh after winning the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series 100-lap event prior to the Evergreen 200.

Local favorite Jeff Barkshire was eighth with Luis Martinez Jr. ninth and Jason Fraser completed the top 10.

The Evergreen 200 will air on SPEED on Thursday, July 28 at 6 p.m. (ET).

The next event on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West schedule is the Bi-Mart Salute to the Troops 125 at Portland (Ore.) International Raceway on Sunday, July 24.
