Race Results

Kyle Larson cruised to the victory in Saturday’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race at Sonoma Raceway.

Larson led all 66 laps and outran the field on a green-white-checkered finish. Justin Allgaier, who restarted third, was spun on the final restart, forcing several cars off course to avoid an incident. He finished 14th.

They were among five Cup drivers in the K&N West race seeking more experience at Sonoma. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished fourth with Michael Annett sixth and Austin Dillon placing 22nd after pulling off course with an engine issue.

Larson won by 3.1 seconds on runner-up Greg Pursley.

“We had a great race with Kyle all day,’’ said Pursley, who briefly took the lead with 13 laps to go but slipped off course and gave the lead back to Larson on that same lap.

“We were struggling off (Turns) 7 and 11. Kyle had awesome forward drive off the corners. If I got by him, he was going to get back by me. Happy to come home second.’’

Larson said he learned more about the course but also was proud of the win.

“Having more Cup drivers in the race this week makes this a little more special because I felt like I had to earn it,’’ said Larson, noting he was the only Sprint Cup driver in the ARCA race he won two weeks ago at Pocono Raceway. “Pursely is really good here. It was good to beat a veteran like that.’’

Dylan Lupton was third with Brandon McReynolds fifth.
