Although the winner of the race was the same as last year, getting to Victory Lane was nothing like last year for Alex Tagliani Saturday afternoon at Sunset Speedway.

Tagliani pulled away late to win the Leland Industries 300 presented by Dickies for the second year in a row in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series. Unlike his win at Sunset last season when he lapped the entire field en route to his first win since 2008, he had to hold off Cayden Lapcevich on a restart with 33 laps remaining in the 300-lap race to score his third career series win. Tagliani never had a chance to equal that mark of last season in this race – especially with a pair of caution flags thrown in the final 33 laps to tighten the field. He qualified 10th and took the lead for the first time in the race passing Josh Collins after a restart on Lap 58.
