IRWINDALE, Calif. – Todd Gilliland had them covered in the NAPA Auto Parts Twin 100 at Irwindale Speedway.

Winning a third straight pole in his No. 16 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota, Gilliland swept the show with the race to win the first twin event of the night. The victory stands as the 16-year-old’s ninth NASCAR K&N Pro Series career victory and the Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, native’s second of 2017 and second at Irwindale overall.

Finishing 2.4 seconds in rears of the defending champion, Chris Eggleston put up a fight in his No. 99 NAPA Filters Toyota. Taking the lead on Lap 50, Eggleston lost the top spot to Gilliland with 33 laps to go. Still, the Tucson winner grabbed his fourth straight top-five finish with a second-place finish.

Garrett Archer came home third while Nicole Behar, who started from the rear, rallied back to finish fourth. The 19-year-old was followed by Will Rodgers, Solvand, California, native earned a third straight top-five finish in fifth.

The 100-lapper wasn’t as easy for some competitors, however. Derek Kraus, who finished second to teammate Gilliland last time out at California’s Kern County Raceway Park, cut a tire and crashed on Lap 17. The 15-year-old, Wisconsin, native finished 18th, nine laps down.

Jesse Iwuji retired due to engine failure while a two-car crash on Lap 58 collected Dan O’Donnell and Stafford Smith. Rookie Kody Vanderwal also spun in Turn 2, suffering no damage.

Michael Self, who won practice, finished sixth with Blaine Perkins, Johnny Borneman III, Matt Levin and Julia Landauer completing the top 10.

The NAPA Twin 100 will air on NBCSN Saturday, April 1 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will be back in action March 25, 2017 at 9:30 p.m. PT for the NAPA Auto Parts T-100, the second feature event of the night at Irwindale Event Center.

Gilliland Doubles Up At Irwindale

Paces K&N Pro West Field In NAPA Auto Parts Twin 100s

IRWINDALE, Calif. – It was a clean night at Irwindale Event Center. And that’s just how Todd Gilliland wanted it.

Leading the field from pole, and hot off a win in the first NAPA Auto Parts Twin 100 feature, the 16-year-old from Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, held off a hard-charging Chris Eggleston to win for the third time in 2017 and 10th time in his NASCAR K&N Pro Series West career.  

The victory, his second at Irwindale, also awards him a $10,000 prize for finishing in the top-three spots in the four-race NAPA 500 Challenge Series.

The NASCAR Next driver’s win also marked Bill McAnally Racing’s 14th victory at the California short-track.

With only one caution in the opening 92 laps, it looked as though it would come easy to the reigning K&N Pro Series West champion. However, a spin from Takuma Koga set up a mad dash to the checkered with four laps to go. 

Eggleston, diving his No. 99 NAPA Filters Toyota into Turn 1, grabbed the race lead for the first time of the night from Gilliland… for about 40 feet. 

A swift over-under maneuver from Gilliland and his No. 16 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota quickly gave him the lead back by the time they reached Turn 3.

Repeating the show with two laps to go, Eggleston was unable to make the move work for the win. A second-place finish marks the fourth straight top-five finish for the 28-year-old Erie, Colorado, native. 

Michael Self, 26, from Park City, Utah, was the only other man to win anything Saturday at Irwindale, as he took the top spot in final practice in his No. 9 Sunrise Ford/Eibach Springs/Lucas Oil Ford. In the race, Self grabbed a third-place finish followed by Derek Kraus and Will Rodgers, who earns a fourth straight top five, in fifth.

Julia Landauer finished sixth with Garrett Archer, who rebounded from a start-line violation, Nicole Behar, Blaine Perkins and Todd Souza completing the top 10.

The NAPA Auto Parts Twin 100s will air on NBCSN, Saturday, April 1 7p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT and 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will be back in action May 13 at Washington’s Spokane County Raceway.
