Roseville’s McAnally Racing has three cars ready for NASCAR Pro Series West
Bill McAnally Racing’s No. 20 car, driven to three NASCAR K&N Pro Series West championships by Eric Holmes of Escalon, will be wheeled by several pilots this season.
Brandon McReynolds, son of NASCAR TV analyst and former crew chief Larry McReynolds, will shoe the Toyota Camry this weekend in the Talking Stick Resort 60 at Phoenix International Raceway. The Pro Series West season opener also will serve as the series debut for McReynolds, who won an ARCA race at Talladega last year.
Holmes will drive the No. 20 car May 4 at Stockton 99 Speedway, and two-time Daytona 500 champion Michael Waltrip will drive Aug. 24 at Spokane County Raceway in Washington and Oct. 12 at All American Speedway in Roseville.
Sergio Pena, 19, will drive the No. 16 Toyota Camry for McAnally. A third BMR racer will be driven by Jamie Krzysik this weekend and by NASCAR Canadian Series hotshoe D.J. Kennington in four races on the circuit.
Also entered in Phoenix is Cameron Hayley, who won the first UNOH Battle at the Beach last week at Daytona International Speedway. Hayley, 16, who drove for BMR the last two seasons, departed for Gene Price Motorsports and took over the seat vacated by 2012 Pro Series West champ Dylan Kwasniewski, now driving in Pro Series East.
Pena, Hayley, Kwasniewski and Elk Grove’s Kyle Larson, the young driver who went airborne last weekend at the end of the NASCAR Nationwide Series opener at Daytona, all are members of the Next9, NASCAR’s list of predicted future stars.
