CASA GRANDE, Ariz. — Making a late-race charge to keep his Saturday perfect, California’s Justin Sanders wheeled the Bob Ream owned No. 8 to victory with the ASCS Southwest Region at Central Arizona Speedway.

Sanders’ second trip to victory lane with the Arizona-based tour, the first 19 laps saw the field chasing New Mexico’s Wes Wofford.

Riding third the opening 11 circuits to the No. 115, Nick Parker’s misfortune was Sanders advantage. Working through mid-race cautions, the No. 8 shot to the lead on lap 20 and proceeded to gap the field by 3.678 seconds.

Wes Wofford held on for second with J.T. Imperial making a nice run from eighth to complete the podium.

The finish:

Feature (25 Laps): 1. 8-Justin Sanders[4]; 2. 19-Wes Wofford[1]; 3. 75-JT Imperial[8]; 4. 18-Lorne Wofford[5]; 5. 2-Alex Pettas[10]; 6. 47-Charles Davis Jr[11]; 7. 01-Royal Jones[9]; 8. 44-Eric Wilkins[17]; 9. 83-Mike Woodruff[21]; 10. 4-Tuesday Calderwood[15]; 11. 3V-Jim Vanzant[16]; 12. 71H-Robert Horsely[19]; 13. 115-Nick Parker[2]; 14. 57-Jayme Barnes[3]; 15. 6-Logan Calderwood[20]; 16. 12-Jesse Stone[13]; 17. 2B-Billy Chester III[7]; 18. 19AZ-Hayden Reinbold[12]; 19. 29-Cody Sickles[18]; 20. 8AZ-Jordan Stetson[14]; 21. 116-Vance Wofford[6]
