Self wins first West Series race at Brainerd
Michael Self won the first race of his NASCAR K&N Pro Series West career.
Self, who had made 33 career West Series starts without a win, chased down Dylan Kwasniewski in the final laps on the road course to win the race.
Kwasniewski led a race-high 39 laps, but had gear box problems down the stretch. He was able to nurse his car across the finish line in second place.
Greg Pursley, the reigning West Series champion, was third.
