After nearly a month away from the track, the ARCA Menards Series West season is set to resume on Saturday night with racing for the NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by Berco Redwood at All American Speedway in Roseville, Calif.
The race is the ninth event on the 2022 ARCA Menards Series West calendar and marks the series’ 24th visit to the 0.333-mile cobbled oval.
With three races to go in the West Series season, Jake Drew continues to hold a comfortable lead in the standings. He has a 52-point advantage over Sunrise Ford Racing teammate Tanner Reif, who will race Saturday at All American.
The West Series made its All American debut in 1977, when Sumner McKnight earned his first series victory. Drivers to claim West Series victories at the track include Jim Bown, Eric Holmes, Dylan Kwasniewski, Michael Self, Gio Scelzi and, most recently, PJ Pedroncelli.
Tickets for the NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by Berco Redwood at All American Speedway are available. Below is everything you need to know about Saturday’s event.

TO MONITOR :
The tight confines of All American Speedway in Roseville, Calif. always provide an entertaining sight when the ARCA Menards Series West comes to town. There’s no reason to think Saturday’s race will be any different.
Drew enters the race as the man to beat, having won half of the eight races contested so far this season. However, only one of those victories came at an oval. He will look to add his second oval win at the All American.
Reif is the only driver to beat Drew since early June. He picked up wins at Irwindale Speedway on March 26 and Evergreen Speedway on August 20. Both Drew and Reif will be among the contenders for All American.
One driver to watch is PJ Pedroncelli, who returns to All American as the reigning West Series race winner. He canceled the last two races and returns to West Series competition, which could be bad news for his rivals on Saturday night.
MORE ALL AMERICAN: Schedule | Tickets
Local favorite Cole Moore returns to All American still looking for his first West Series win. Moore won the 2020 Late Model Track Championship at All American, which means he knows how to navigate the tricky setup.
Landen Lewis, who triumphed earlier this year at Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield, Calif., continues his pursuit of his second victory of the year in Bill McAnally Racing’s No. 16. Veteran racer John Moore returns to the West Series for the first time since 2015 aboard the No. 24 Chevrolet for team owner Alex McAnally.
Joey Iest, Todd Souza, Bridget Burgess and Takuma Koga are among the other series regulars who are expected to compete.
