Landen Lewis challenged for the race lead after the halfway break during the ARCA Menards Series West action at Portland International Raceway on Saturday evening.
Both Bill McAnally Racing drivers took turns challenging for the win on the 1.967-mile road course. The event was the third and final road course race of 2022 and took place during the NTT IndyCar weekend.
Lewis had the fastest lap in Saturday practice driving the No. 16 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevrolet SS, leading his teammate Cole Moore in the No. 99 Adaptive One Chevrolet SS. Lewis then qualified fourth. Lewis and Moore battled hard and clean for the third position early in the race.
Moore was crowded off the track on the restart by another competitor after the halfway break. Lewis seized the opportunity to drive into second and challenge for the lead.
Lewis suffered a broken rear axle, however, but his BMR team got him back into the race quickly. He ran out of time to rebound and eventually finished ninth. Moore overcame a pit stop, and a pass-through penalty for a restart violation, to finish fourth.
Bill McAnally Racing’s home race is up next with the NAPA AUTO PARTS 150 at All American Speedway in Roseville, Calif. on October 1.
Start / Finish: 4 / 9
Points Standing / Total: 11th / 191 pts.
