Running for Redemption … Jack Wood is contesting back-to-back ARCA Menards Series West (AMSW) races for the first time this season and is running for redemption on Friday at Sonoma Raceway. The driver of the No. 16 NAPA Auto Care Chevrolet SS looks to make up for his near miss last week at Portland International Raceway (PIR) when his bid for the lead resulted in an off-track excursion. Wood was in contention for his first-career victory at PIR before finishing 12th and hopes to seal the deal in wine country. The Loomis, Calif. native remains fourth in the AMSW championship standings through three of 12 events, just 16 markers out of the lead.

Roadie History / 2024 Season … The second-consecutive road course event marks Wood’s seventh such appearance in ARCA Menards Series competition. He’s made seven prior road course starts across the ARCA platform, which includes two each at Sonoma, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, and Watkins Glen International. His best-career road course finish in ARCA competition came at Mid-Ohio last season when he finished third. Wood has been a reliable performer in both of his starts at Sonoma with a pair of fourth-place finishes. Wood also competed in the lone NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series road course event this season at Circuit of the Americas where he finished 13th. He scored a season-high seventh-place result in the AMSW opener at Phoenix Raceway and is fourth in the standings after three races. 

BMR in Wine Country … The sprawling 1.99-mile Sonoma Raceway is one of the few venues at which BMR has yet to collect a victory. The winding wine country course has long been a mainstay on the AMSW schedule, hosting 44 previous events on the tour’s schedule. Wood and his BMR teammate Eric Johnson Jr. hope to claim the organization’s first victory in the Sonoma Valley on Friday afternoon. The BMR duo is looking to score the company’s first road course victory since Jesse Love went to victory lane in 2020 at Utah Motorsports Campus.

Tune In … The second and final road course event of the season goes green at 6:30 p.m. ET on Friday and can be streamed on FloRacing ( Stay connected with the No. 16 NAPA Auto Care team by following @BMR_NASCAR on Twitter, @bmrnascar on Instagram, and Bill McAnally Racing on Facebook. 

Jack Wood Quote:

On back to back road courses:

“We’re really motivated to put last week behind us and get a good finish at Sonoma this week. We need to start getting some good finishes and regain ground in the point standings. Our NAPA Auto Care Chevrolet was pretty fast last week at Portland and I think we’ll have some more pace at Sonoma on Friday. Sonoma is a lot more of a technical track than Portland. There are quite a few places to make mistakes, but plenty of opportunities to gain time too. We’re focused on putting a solid day together and it’d be great to put ourselves in position to race for the win at the end of the day.”
