Jason Bowles, a driver from Ontario, won the pole for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma on Friday.

It was the 10th West Series pole of his career. The reigning West Series champion has won the previous two West Series races in Sonoma. He is making only his second West Series start of the season, opting to race in other series, including select NASCAR Nationwide Series events.

"It was a good lap," Bowles said. "The car drove really, really good. We made some adjustments there at the end of practice, because we didn’t get a chance to make a mock run. The car drove substantially better. I’m really happy with it. The guys did a great job. It’s a new car that we just got last week. I’m really looking forward to the race tomorrow."

Boris Said, a driver from Carlsbad, qualified second. Greg Pursley, a Canyon High of Canyon Country graduate, qualified fourth. David Gilliland, a driver from Riverside and regular in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, will start fifth.

Brandon Davis from Huntington Beach is starting seventh. Luis Martinez Jr., a West Series rookie driver from Long Beach, earned the ninth starting spot.
