Bill McAnally Racing drivers finished fourth in both Tucson twin 100s that comprised a NASCAR K&N Pro Series West doubleheader at Tucson Speedway on Saturday night.
Derek Kraus drove BMR’s No. 16 NAPA AUTO PARTS Toyota Camry to a fourth-place finish in the first 100-lap race, while Cole Rouse came home fourth in the second race in the No. 99 NAPA Filters Toyota Camry.
Their BMR teammate, Hailie Deegan, had a solid night, meanwhile – finishing eighth in both races in the No. 19 Mobil 1/NAPA Power Premium Plus Toyota Camry.
In addition to the twin 100-lap races, fans were treated to a special bonus with the opportunity to meet NASCAR legends Hershel McGriff and Ron Hornaday Jr., who drove the NAPA-sponsored truck for Dale Earnhardt Inc.
McGriff returned to the series to compete in the event at the age of 90. Hornaday, a member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame and a four-time champion in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, returned to Tucson to serve as the grand marshal of the event.

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.
