Partridge wins NASCAR West race at Colorado National

      DACONO, Colo. (Aug. 24, 2015) – Ryan Partridge didn’t lead the entire NAPA Auto Parts 150 at Colorado National Speedway, but he led enough laps to get his point across.
      Partridge won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race in convincing fashion, leading 149 of the 150 laps around the 3/8-mile CNS oval.
      Goodyear is the exclusive tire supplier for the K&N Pro Series West. The same line of bias-ply tires Goodyear manufactures for the West Series are also supplied for the K&N Pro Series East and the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. The tires are made in Goodyear’s Innovation Center in Akron, Ohio.
      Partridge started on the pole and surrendered the lead once for one lap on his way to averaging 65.483 mph for the race distance. The race was completed with just 11 laps run under the caution flag and the winner averaged 65.483 mph. Partridge’s pole-winning lap during time trials was 79.966 mph.
      Blake Williams finished second in the race, 1.7 seconds behind the winner. In the closely-competitive world of the K&N Pro Series West, the margin of victory was unusually large.
 Chris Eggleston, who led lap 29, finished third, followed by David Mayhew and Brandon McReynolds.
      Eggleston and Partridge are tied for the lead in the championship standings with 396 points. Noah Gragson is third with 390.
