Chris Eggleston drove his No. 99 past James Bickford with five laps remaining and Eggleston would hold on from there to win the Bill Schmitt Memorial 150 at Shasta Speedway in Anderson.

It was Eggleston's third win in nine career NASCAR K&N Pro Series West races.

Bickford inherited the lead on Lap 92 when pole sitter David Mayhew, who led for most of the race up to that point, pulled off the track with mechanical issues.

But Eggleston slowly reeled in Bickford and made the late pass to grab the win.

The Bill Schmitt Memorial 150 will air on Thursday, June 4th at 4 p.m. on NBCSN.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will be at Sonoma Raceway June 27th for the Carneros 200.

Speedway officials said Saturday night's race was the first time a NASCAR racing series had appeared at Shasta Speedway in more than a decade.
