Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts 150 - Race Notes

Race Notes

The race … The Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts 150 is the 11th of a 12-race schedule this year for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West. The series kicked off the season at Roseville in March.

The procedure … The starting field is 24 cars, including provisionals. The first 20 cars will qualify through two-lap time trials. The remaining four spots will be awarded through the provisional process. The race will be 150 laps (50 miles).

The track … All American Speedway is a .333-mile paved oval with eight degrees banking in Turns 1 and 2. Turns 3 and 4 have progressive banking, beginning at 10 degrees and graduating to 14 degrees. The track hosted five NASCAR K&N Pro Series West events between 1977 and 1982, when it was a quarter-mile oval, and five races since it was renovated prior to the 2008 season.

The records … Qualifying: Jason Bowles, April 4, 2009, 88.218 mph, 13.589 seconds; Race: Eric Holmes, April 4, 2009, 67.576 mph, 44 minutes 21 seconds.

Special Fan Fest On Friday Race fans will be treated to a special free event with a special Pick-N-Pull-sponsored NASCAR Fan Fest from 5:30–8:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 15.

The event — which includes food and beverages, while supplies last — will be held on the midway at the Placer County Fairgrounds, adjacent to All American Speedway.

A variety of activities for the entire family are planned — including NASCAR K&N Pro Series cars and haulers on display, a driver autograph session, a Pick-N-Pull hit-a-car for charity, inflatable jumpers, a mechanical bull, a surfing game and a UTI Pit Crew Challenge.
