Race Results

Chris Eggleston's championship charge is underway.

The 28-year-old from Erie, Colorado, dominated Saturday evening's NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by Toyota at Evergreen Speedway for his fourth win of the season. Coupled with teammate Todd Gilliland's off night -- he finished ninth after a late flat tire put him a lap down -- Eggleston closed back to within five points with four races remaining.

Eggleston's No. 99 NAPA Filters/Bill McAnally Racing Toyota held off Will Rodgers on an overtime finish that pushed the race to 155 laps. 

“We got pressured in the first and second half, but we were able to manage the gap and come home with an awesome win with our NAPA Filters Toyota,” Eggleston said. “I’m proud of all the guys at BMR for working so hard on it.

“It was definitely our race to lose and I knew that even going into the race, because I knew how good a car we had and just wanted to minimize any mistakes. At the same time I wanted to stay out front and keep good track position and stay in clean air. I knew if somebody got around us it would be a lot harder to get back by around them.”
 
Nicole Behar finished third, followed by Michael Self and Tayler Riddle. 

Rodgers was coming off his first career K&N Pro Series win at Watkins Glen International last week, while Riddle, the 2016 Summer Showdown winner in the super late model showcase at Evergreen, was making his series debut.

Evergreen was the ninth career series win for Eggleston, and came at a track where he finished third in 2015 and second last year.

It was the third race of the season Eggleston won after earning the Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day.

Julia Landauer finished sixth, followed by Derek Kraus, Matt Levin, Gilliland and Todd Souza.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West is back on track at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon, on Saturday, Aug. 26 before finishing up with three races between Sept. 30 and the Nov. 4 finale at Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield, Calif.

The NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by Toyota will air on NBCSN on Thursday, Aug. 17 at 1 p.m. ET.
