DaltonFresh off a solid second place finish in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series (NKNPS) East season opener at New Smyrna Speedway just outside of Daytona Beach, Florida, the rookie Dalton Sargeant headed out west to try his hand in the NAPA Auto Parts 150 at Kern County Raceway in Bakersfield, California. The 17-year old Boca Raton, Florida native drives for HScott Motorsports in the NKNPS East series and has earned himself a seat with the first-year team Jefferson Pitts Racing in the NKNPS West series.

Dalton Sargeant started off his weekend with a strong qualifying run earning himself the 21 means 21 Pole Award presented by Coors Light. Sargeant led the first 16 laps of the NAPA Auto Parts 150 before surrendering the lead to series veteran David Mayhew in the number 17 MMI Service Chevrolet. Mayhew led the next 85 laps, taking the Autolite Iridium XP Lap Leader honors, however, Sargeant was able to once again take control of the race on lap 102.

Despite a fierce challenge from Mayhew on every lap, Sargeant was able to out-last the 33-year-old Atascadero, California Native. Sargeant’s Jefferson Pitts Racing teammate Noah Gragson brought the Alert I.D. Ford across the line for a third place finish. 2014 Sunoco Rookie of the Year winner, James Bickford finished fourth, and Chris Eggleston rounded out the top five.
