Noah Gragson Wins Wild K&N West Series Race at Sonoma

Noah Gragson took the lead from Hailie Deegan on lap 1 of the Procore 200 at Sonoma Raceway, and he dominated nearly the entire first Stage of the race.

However, on a restart in the closing laps of the opening stage Gragson was flagged for jumping the start. This sent the leader of the race to pit road and to the back of the field.

Ryan Preece assumed the lead and looked to be cruising to a victory, that is until he was busted for jumping the restart himself on an overtime finish.

Gragson had routed and gouged his way to second, which made him the winner of the race when Preece’s restart was deemed illegal.

Daniel Hemric came home second, Austin Dillon was third. Cole Custer and David Mayhew rounded out the top-five finishers.

Preece was scored the last car on the lead lap in 20th.

Deegan did not lead a lap in the race and finished eighth, while the point leader — Derek Kraus — encountered numerous issues en route to a 19th place finish. Kraus now leads Deegan by just one point in the championship race.

  1. Have not seen the end of the race, but it has to be the most frustrating move NASCAR can make……..especially after the MENCS race two weeks ago had drivers complaining about exactly this action from a top tiered driver. All that aside, congrats to Noah G for hanging tough and maintaining after getting called out for exactly that same think one start earlier…..Wow, it’s like every play is an adventure. Just like Sunday softball. I can’t seem to find where Austin Dillon and That Keegan Girl finished. Anyone know?

  2. Well, darn, nevermind my last question about Austin Dillon. I read close and he finished 3rd.

  3. I wasnt able to watch the race on fan choice like a few others….i wanna see where Noha Jumped the restart Compared to Ryan Preece…What is your thoughts People? Do You Think RP. Jumped The Restart? I like to see/hear Peoples views
