BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – Derek Thorn topped the SPEARS Southwest Tour Collection part of the October Traditional on Sunday at Kern County Raceway Park.

Starting up from the pole following an invert, Thorn dominated the 100-lap function. Inspite of expending his day at the entrance of the subject, Thorn was frequently hounded by veteran late product driver Preston Peltier during the race.

Peltier was hardly ever much more than 50 percent a 2nd behind Thorn right before at some point slipping out of the race in the final 30 laps with a mechanical problem.

That remaining Thorn by himself at the entrance of the field, allowing for him to cruise to the victory above Jace Hansen. The victory was Thorn’s sixth victory of the time with the series.

“That was a exercise routine. That was intense. That was the most intense race I consider I have had in a lengthy time,” Thorn claimed. “Hats off to the 54 (Peltier) and the 08 (Hansen), they both of those experienced truly great cars.”

Christian McGhee, Brandon Farrington and Jacob Gomes completed the major-5 finishers.

Jeremy Doss won the companion Spears Producing Modified Collection feature.

The finish:

Derek Thorn, Jace Hansen, Christian McGhee, Brandon Farrington, Jacob Gomes, Dan Holtz, John Dillon, Blaine Rocha, Carlos Vieira, Kyle Neveau, Buddy Shepherd, Cale Kanke, Chris Clyne, Keith Spangler, Eric Schmidt, Joey Iest, Dean Thompson, Bobby Hodges, Jim Vermillion, Scott Sanchez, Preston Peltier, Mark Neff, Linny White, Andy Allen, Thane Alderman.
