Tyler Reif started from the pole and led the opening 55 laps of Saturday night’s ARCA Menards Series West NAPA Auto Parts 150 at Evergreen Speedway. But when Sean Hingorani got around Reif to lead Lap 56, it signaled the end of the race for the rest of the field.
The driver of the No. 15 Venturini Motorsports team was unstoppable for the remainder of the 150-lap event, and he easily cruised to his fourth ARCA Menards Series West win of the 2023 season.
With his latest triumph, Hingorani vaults into the points lead with four races remaining in the season. The 16-year-old has a one-point advantage over Landen Lewis.
Tyler Reif was able to hang on for a runner-up finish, while Kole Raz came home in third.
Landen Lewis, the championship leader heading into the race, and the man who has held the point lead since the second race of the season, faded to a fourth-place finish.
In the closing laps, Lewis had worked his way to second and looked to briefly have a shot at catching Hingorani for the lead. But those hopes faded quickly as Hingorani kept his foot on the floorboard.
Eric Nascimento Jr. finished the race in fifth.
After the checkered flag, Bradley Erickson had a hard crash. Erickson was able to walk away from the carnage and was awarded a ninth-place finish on the night.
Next up for the ARCA West Series is the NAPA Auto Care 150 at All American Speedway on September 30th.
