All Three BMR Drivers Score Top-Five Finishes at Orange Show


All three Bill McAnally Racing drivers finished in the top five in NASCAR K&N Pro Series West competition on the tight quarter-mile oval at Orange Show Speedway in San Bernardino, California, before a packed crowed on Saturday night.

The trio ran nose-to-tail in the late stages of the 150-lap race, which was presented by NAPA AUTO PARTS.



Cole Rouse finished third in the No. 99 NAPA Filters Toyota Camry, Hailie Deegan was fourth in the No. 19 Mobil 1/NAPA Power Premium Plus Toyota Camry, and Derek Kraus took fifth in the No. 16 NAPA AUTO PARTS Toyota Camry.

During time trials earlier in the day, the three BMR drivers had qualified in a row – with Kraus second, Rouse third, and Deegan fourth. Kraus, 16, battled for the top spot in the early laps of the race and led in the first half. He shadowed the leader for much of the event, before slipping back to fifth with handling issues in the closing laps.

Bill McAnally Racing (BMR) holds the ARCA Menards Series West record with 11 championships and eclipsed the 100-win mark in 2022. The team has piled on six titles in the last eight seasons with four different drivers since 2015. Second-year driver Tanner Reif takes control of the No. 16 NAPA Auto Care Chevrolet for the 12-race campaign in 2023 and looks to improve on his runner-up finish in the 2022 drivers’ standings to build on BMR’s west coast legacy.
