MONROE, WASH. – Todd Gilliland dominated the field in the NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by Toyota to earn his fifth NASCAR K&N Pro Series West victory of the season and his sixth win overall.

The 16-year-old Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, NASCAR Next driver led the field to green after winning the 21 Means Pole Award earlier in the day. He paced the field throughout the race to lead all 150 laps at Washington’s Evergreen Speedway. 

The big battle came from Gilliland’s Bill McAnally Racing teammates Chris Eggleston and Riley Herbst for the runner-up spot, with Eggleston securing the spot with a pass on the backstretch with 44 laps to go.

With his win, Gilliland has a 12-point lead over Partridge in the series championship points standings with five races remaining.

Gilliland joins his grandfather, Butch Gilliland, and his father, David Gilliland, on the winners list at the .646-mile oval.

Gracin Raz and Partridge rounded out the top five. Cole Rouse, Blaine Perkins, Julia Landauer, Nicole Behar and Cole Moore completed the top 10.

The NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by Toyota will air on NBCSN Thursday, Aug. 25 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will be back in action Saturday, Aug. 27 at Oregon’s Douglas County Speedway.
