Kevin Montgomery


TUCSON, Ariz. - Feb. 19.  - Steve Drake captured the finale of the West Coast Shootout vs. Total Seal Late Model Series Saturday at USA Raceway, giving California bragging rights and the fifth annual "Copper on Dirt Championship".


Drake hustled to the front and held off charges from Friday's winner Nick Bartels and podium finisher Clay Daly to notch his second victory at USA Raceway in the last five months.  Bartels settled for the runner spot while Daly and R.C. Whitwell battled for the final podium spot.


Whitwell spun early in the 30-Lap feature, relegating himself to a 20th restart position. Whitwell thrilled the crowd as he raced through traffic to pass Daly for the third spot on the final lap. 


Daly would follow with a close fourth place finish and Lonnie Parker Jr. completed the top five.
