On Saturday night Chris Eggleston won the NAPA Auto Parts/Toyota 150 at Colorado National Speedway in Dacono, Colorado to pick up his first career NASCAR K&N Pro Series West victory in only his second start. The 25-year-old Eggleston is from nearby Erie, Colorado and was the track champion in the Legends Division in 2013.
Eggleston made his West Series debut back in 2011 and finished 11th at the Colorado National Speedway. He also has made six career starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
David Mayhew was on the pole Saturday night and led the first 20 laps before Brandon McReynolds took the lead on lap 21. His lead did not last long as championship points leader Greg Pursley took over the race lead on lap 28. Chris Eggleston moved to the top spot on lap 41 for the first time. Just after a restart after the second caution of the race Pursley regained the lead on lap 90 but Eggleston battled back and took the lead again on lap 92. David Mayhew had crashed which brought out that caution. He lost 16 laps and finished 14th of the 17 entries.
The fourth caution flew on lap 135 and on the lap 140 restart Dylan Lupton was able to get the lead. Eggleston again battled back and on lap 141 took the lead for good. He went on to lead the final 10 laps and 107 total of the 150 in the race to earn the win.
Dylan Lupton finished second, James Bickford third, Greg Pursley fourth, Brandon McReynolds fifth, Thomas Martin sixth, Brett Thompson seventh, Bill Kann eighth, John Wood ninth, and Jairo Avila was the last lead lap car in tenth.
The next race on the schedule is the second combination race of the season with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East at Iowa Speedway. The Autolite Iridium XP 150 will be on Sunday, August 3rd.
