Antelope, CA - Two for two is NASCAR K&N Pros Series West Eric Holmes record at winning the first race of the season at All American Speedway. The two-time West Series champion from Bill McAnally Racing is planning on making it three-for-three by once again putting the No. 20 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota Camry in Victory Lane. He'll get that chance on March 27th as the West Series returns to All American Speedway in Roseville, California for the first of the five Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts Bonus Challenge West races.

Holmes led 128 laps of the 150-lap Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts "150" last spring recording his first win of 2009 with hundreds of NAPA customers, employees and store owners in attendance. Holmes and new crew chief Matt Goslant look to once again put the No. 20 NAPA Toyota Camry from the stable of four-time championship team owner Bill McAnally, back in Victory Lane.

"I can't wait to get back in the No. 20 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota," said Holmes. "I'm really looking forward to working with Matt (Goslant). He and the BMR team have done a great job preparing the cars and I believe with some racing luck, we have a shot at getting BMR and NAPA their 5th West Series championship during their 20th anniversary season together."

The West Series has raced at All American Speedway four times with Holmes recording two wins and three top-five finishes at the short track in the heart of California. It is the home track for the Bill McAnally Racing whose headquarters are in nearby Antelope. "My teammates are equally ready to race hard. Moses (Smith) and Paulie (Harraka) will be on my back door. Having all three of the BMR Toyota's on the podium would be a great way end to the day", continued Holmes.

The Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts Bonus Challenge West race will be on March 27th at All American Speedway in Roseville, California. For more information, please logon to www.allamericanspeedway.com.
