Kern County Raceway Park is one of three tracks to host a pair of K&N West events this season. The series already has made two trips to Iowa Speedway, with a return trip to Phoenix International Raceway set for Thursday, November 6th.

David Mayhew, coming off his third series win of the season the last time out at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington, came close to a Kern County victory earlier this year. He overtook Greg Pursley for the lead on Lap 114 of the 150-lap event, but a late-race caution changed everything. The Lap 136 caution set up a restart on Lap 142. Mayhew and Pursley waged a side-by-side battle that figured to go all the way to the checkered flag, but as the pair came through Turn 2 on Lap 146, the slowed car of Bill Kann was in Mayhew’s line and he had to put on the brakes to avoid contact. The evasive action dropped Mayhew to fourth in the moment, and Pursley cruised for the final four circuits in the No. 26 GPM/Star Nursery/Real Water Ford to his 19th career victory.
Mayhew would earn back a spot, ultimately finishing third on the evening, but he knew that he missed an opportunity to celebrate in front of a home crowd.
"We gave one away the last time we were there," said Mayhew. "We'd love nothing better than to go to our home track and try and get two in a row."
Mayhew enters the Bakersfield 150 presented by GPS on Saturday in fourth place in the championship standings, trailing points leader Pursley by 40 points. His three victories have come at Stockton (California) 99 Speedway, the May Iowa Speedway event and the last time out at Evergreen Speedway.
K&N Pro Series West points leader Greg Pursley has two victories in two visits to Kern County. He went to Victory Lane in the series’ inaugural event at the .5-mile oval and again earlier this season. Pursley heads to Kern County Raceway Park hoping to bounce back from his worst finish of the season, an 11th place effort at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington. The 2011 series champion had top-five finishes in every event this season before electrical problems caused him to break that streak the last time out.

NASCAR released its 2015 schedule of races for all three of its national series on Tuesday, realigning the dates for several tracks, including moving the Southern 500 back to its traditional spot on Labor Day weekend.
Changes for Atlanta Motor Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway and Darlington Raceway are among the major alterations to the 36-race NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule, plus two non-points events. The season begins Feb. 22 with the season-opening Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway and ends Nov. 22 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, site of the season finale since 2002.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will expand from 22 to 23 races next season, adding an early season date at Atlanta. The NASCAR Nationwide Series, which will gain new title sponsorship in 2015, remains at 33 races. The news was announced Tuesday on FOX Sports 1 and NBC Sports Network.
NASCAR Executive Vice President & Chief Racing Development Officer Steve O'Donnell credited stakeholders across NASCAR with working together to put out all three national series schedules at once in August, earlier than the usual mid-September release date.
"It was really a result of some great collaboration from the entire industry," O'Donnell said. "The tracks recognized this was an opportunity for us if we could collectively, with NBC and FOX coming on board, look at some of the venues that may have had challenged dates and put them in a better position to succeed.
