The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West returned to Phoenix International Raceway for the Casino Arizona 125 series finale race.
After successfully capturing top ten finishes at Miller Motorsports Parks in Utah and Infineon Raceway in Northern California, World Stage Racing and driver Brian Wong looked to continue another solid finish in the K&N Pro Series at Phoenix International Raceway. The new surface and banking definitely posed to be a challenge, leveling the playing field for the K&N Pro Series. During the only practice of the weekend was held for a solid three hours Friday morning. Brian Wong in the #89 World Stage Racing/KevJumba/Privy.net Toyota was consistently in the top fifteen fastest. Still looking for more speed, crew chief, Dave McCarty was focusing on the set up for the race. Qualifying for the Casino Arizona 125 came early Saturday morning, just a few hours from the green flag. Brian Wong qualified the #89 World Stage Racing/ KevJumba/Privy.net Toyota just outside the top fifteen, putting them in a prime position for the long race. Prior to qualifying, a mechanical issue was found, needing to be replaced. The mechanical change is a rule violation in NASCAR, which exempts the #89 World Stage Racing/KevJumba/Privy.net Toyota from starting in the qualified position, but instead starting from the back of the field.
