MONROE, Wash. (July 14, 2012) – Finally Eric Holmes gets to celebrate a win at Evergreen Speedway.

After finishing in the top 10 in his three previous starts at the historic track, Holmes was able to pass Michael Self for the lead on Lap 131 and remained out front the rest of the way to win the NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by Gene Price Motorsports on Saturday for his first win of the season and 17th overall in NASCAR K&N Pro Series West competition.

The win for the driver of the No. 20 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota out of Escalon, Calif., was especially sweet after a disappointing finish in his last start at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway at which he experienced engine problems while leading the race. He was forced to settle for a 23rd-place finish. Additionally, the win was the 50th for Bill McAnally Racing comprised of 49 championship events and one special event.

Derek Thorn, who started from the rear of the field due to a move to a backup car, finished third. The car change was necessitated by a hard crash into the Turn 1 wall during practice earlier in the day. Jonathon Gomez and David Mayhew finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

Holmes qualified third and remained near the front of the pack throughout the first half of the race before making his move and taking the lead from Self.

Completing the top 10 were defending series champion Greg Pursley, who started from the pole, points leader Dylan Kwasniewski, Daryl Harr, Ryan Philpott and Carl Harr.

The win also gave Holmes a locked-in spot to the UNOH Battle At The Beach on the .4-mile oval at Daytona International Speedway next February during Speedweeks.

The NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by Gene Price Motorsports will air on SPEED on July 26 at 3 p.m. ET.

The next event on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West schedule is the NAPA/Toyota 150 at Colorado National Speedway in Dacono, Colo., on July 28.
