Race Results

Chris Eggleston used knowledge of his home track to his advantage against the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West regulars.

Making just his second career series start, Eggleston led a race-high 107 laps and held off the top championship contenders in the NAPA Auto Parts/Toyota 150 from Colorado National Speedway on Saturday en route to his first series victory.

The 25-year-old driver from nearby Erie, Colorado, has about a dozen Super Late Model wins in the track's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I, and won the track’s Legends Division championship last year. He made his first K&N Pro Series West start at this event in 2011 and finished 11th.

Dylan Lupton made a late charge following a Lap 139 caution but couldn’t overtake Eggleston. He finished .434-seconds back for his fifth top five of the season and second runner-up finish. Lupton was followed by teammate James Bickford, championship points leader Greg Pursley and Brandon McReynolds.

Thomas Martin was sixth, followed by Brett Thompson, Bill Kann, John Wood and Jairo Avila.

Coors Light Pole Award winner David Mayhew led early in the event, but was overtaken by McReynolds on Lap 22. He would continue to contend for the lead until an accident on Lap 81 forced him to pit road. Mayhew would return to the track just before Lap 100, finishing the event in the 14th position.

Lupton was able to take a couple points off Pursley’s lead, with is now 25 after eight of 14 races. McReynolds is third in points, followed by Mayhew and Bickford.

The NAPA Auto Parts/Toyota 150 will air on FOX Sports 1 on Sunday, Aug. 3, at 9 a.m. ET.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West next heads to Iowa Speedway for the second NASCAR K&N Pro Series East-West combination race of the season. The Autolite Iridium XP 150 is set for Friday, Aug. 1 at 9 p.m. ET.

Each Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET at MRN.com, hosts Kyle Rickey and Buddy Long give you all the news, race results and highlights from NASCAR Modified and K&N Pro Series East and West races from all over the country along with interviews with race winners and news makers.
