PIT BOX: Home Track Edge At Riverhead

K&N Pro West Returns To Douglas County

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

• After a trip to Tennessee for the "World's Fastest Half-Mile," the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour returns to Long Island for Saturday's Riverhead 200 on the tight quarter-mile Riverhead Raceway. And there is a host of tour drivers looking forward to the homecoming, led by Bristol race winner Eric Goodale. Goodale won at his hometown track in 2014, while Timmy Solomito from nearby Islip won there earlier this year. In fact, of the last 18 events at Riverhead, nine have been won by Long Island drivers. Donny Lia has four wins and Justin Bonsignore three in that span. Bonsignore enters the event trailing championship points leader Doug Coby by 32 with six races remaining.

• Todd Gilliland will look to continue his hot streak as the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West returns to Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon, for the Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts 150. Gilliland has extended his championship points lead to 12 over Ryan Partridge and 31 over defending series champion Chris Eggleston with a three-race win streak. The 16-year-old from Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, has won five times in the West and six overall in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. Gilliland and Eggleston may have the edge going to the .375-mile oval. While the series hasn't raced there since 2010, the Bill McAnally Racing won the last five events at Roseburg.
