Todd Gilliland led the way among Bill McAnally Racing drivers as the trio all finished in the top five at All American Speedway on Saturday night in the Toyota NAPA AUTO PARTS 150 presented by TriCo Welding Supplies.
The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West event, before a packed crowd of enthusiastic fans, was part of the 10th Annual October Classic at the historic third-mile short track in Roseville, California. The race was won by Michael Self.
Todd Gilliland and Chris Eggleston, who are battling for the series championship, finished second and third, respectively – with series rookie Derek Kraus close behind in fourth.
“We definitely missed it a little bit tonight with our NAPA Toyota, but still coming home with a second-place finish is really strong,” Gilliland said. “I’m really proud to be part of this Bill McAnally Racing team.”
Gilliland, the defending series champion, and Eggleston, the 2015 series champion, have dominated the series competition this season – combining to win 10 of the first 11 races.
With his second-place finish, Gilliland maintained his 11-point lead in the championship standings heading into the final event on this season’s 14-race schedule.

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.
