NASCAR's premier series on the West Coast, the K&N Pro Series West, celebrates 60 years in 2013. Spokane County Raceway will be part of that celebration as the series returns to the half-mile oval for only the second time in over 35 years. Eric Holmes was the winner of the 2011 race and will be back to defend that victory on August 24. The race will be one of two series events to be held in Washington state as Evergreen Speedway just outside of Seattlewill be up first on Aug. 17.
The win for the driver of the No. 20 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota out of Escalon, Calif., was especially sweet after a disappointing finish in his last start at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway at which he experienced engine problems while leading the race. He was forced to settle for a 23rd-place finish. Additionally, the win was the 50th for Bill McAnally Racing comprised of 49 championship events and one special event.
