Thorn rids himself of “monkey” with victory at KCRP

 

The frustration Derek Thorn has had with Kern County Raceway Park came to an end on Saturday night.

Thorn shattered the track record in qualifying (the old mark was his as well), then went on to do something he had never done: Win a Spears Southwest Tour race on his home track.

Thorn took the lead for good from fellow Bakersfield driver David Mayhew on the 24th lap and pulled away for a 2.9-second victory over Mayhew in the DC's RV Center 100 on the paved half-mile oval.

"All of us have been working hard to get this win," Thorn said. "We live 20 miles from here. This was on top of our list."

Thorn came into the race with 21 wins in 51 Southwest Tour races, but a pair of runner-ups were his best finishes in three previous outings at KCRP.

"Man, all the talk about us finishing second here, it was nice to get the monkey off our backs," Thorn said.

It was the second straight win for Thorn, who started defense of his series championship with a win last month in Madera.

Mayhew took the lead on the 11th lap, and Thorn moved into second close behind. Thorn stalked Mayhew for several laps, trying to get by several times on the low side. He did so on lap 22, but Mayhew edged back in front on the next lap.

Thorn was inches ahead on lap 24 then slid in front of Mayhew on the next circuit. From that point on, it was all Thorn.
