Bill McAnally Racing will field two female drivers in the K&N Pro Series West this season.

Brittney Zamora, a 19-year-old development driver for Toyota Racing Development from Kennewick, Washington, will be driving the No. 99 Camry for BMR.

Zamora will join teammate Hailie Deegan, who made history last year as the first woman to win a K&N Series race.

Zamora, who will be sponsored by ENEOS and NAPA filters,  was named rookie of the year last season in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series for Washington and won her second consecutive championship in the Northwest Super Late Model Series.

“Bill McAnally Racing is an elite NASCAR K&N Pro Series team who has won multiple championships and I’m proud to drive for them,” Zamora said in a release. “This is a dream opportunity for me and I’m here to win races and compete at the highest level every day.”

Zamora will attempt to be the fourth straight driver to win K&N West rookie of the year for BMR, following Deegan, Derek Kraus and Todd Gilliland.

Said BMR president Bill McAnally, whose team has a record eight championships and 90 wins in K&N: “We are lucky to have the opportunity to add a quality driver of Brittney’s prestige to our team for 2019. We are already looking forward to the competition meetings because this may be as talented of a group as we have ever had on this team.”

Zamora and Deegan will be teamed with Kraus, who also is part of the latest NASCAR Next class. The trio also will compete in select K&N Pro Series East races, starting with the Feb. 10 race at New Smyrna Speedway.
