The top 15 Street Stocks lined up for the first feature of the evening with Kevin Golden on the pole and Paul Nelson alongside. Jeremy Williams was in row two with Steve Keith Jr. Golden led the first circuit then stumbled on lap two giving Nelson the lead. Golden slowed before lap two was complete causing the first caution. Nelson, Williams, Gary Fisher and Sam Courson were the restart leaders. Williams won the dash to turn one on the restart to become the third leader in as many laps. Nelson was second with Fisher third and Keith fourth. Keith spun collecting Ken Lamp for the second caution with eight laps complete. Williams, Nelson, Fisher and point leader Chris Withers were the leaders. Withers grabbed third on the restart as Williams started to build a lead. A spin by Doug Moore just in front of the leaders caused caution three with eight laps remaining. Fisher had problems on the restart for caution four and required the hook to leave the speedway along with Patrick Fielding. Withers visited the pits during the yellow and rejoined the field at the end. Williams controlled the restart and once more began to build a lead. Jeffery Keith spun for yellow five. Williams, Nelson, Brian Crandall, Kyle Weilacher and Withers from last on the last restart to fifth. Withers charge continued taking third with two laps remaining. Withers was unable to pass Crandall or catch Williams. It was the first win of the season for Williams breaking the 8 race win streak of Withers.

The second feature of the evening was the Applebee Motorsports UEMS E-Mod Invasion 40 lap event. Kyle Innman and Dan Davies were in row one with John Woodward Jr. and Brian Douglas in row two. Inman led the pack into turn one but before the pack could complete the lap the yellow flew for Dave Shagla spun to a stop in turn three. Inman led after the restart with Davies second and Douglas third. Randy Hall and Brent Rhebergen were fourth and fifth. The yellow reappeared with five laps complete for Justin Carlson. Just one more lap was complete as Shagla slowed to a stop coming out of turn two for caution three. Six laps were complete Inman, Douglas, Davies, Rhebergen and Hall were the leaders. Hall was third at the end of lap seven then second at the end of lap eight. Dave Hess Jr. made it into the top five with Butch Southwell in tow. Hall was now on Inman’s bumper but Rhebergen joined the battle for second along with Hess. Inman suffered mechanical problems allowing Rhebergen to take the lead just before the half way point. Hess was second with Hall third. Rhebergen started showing smoke on lap twenty three then just before the yellow flew for Douglas stopped at the edge of the track in turn two Hess took the lead. Rhebergen was given back the lead for the restart and Hess went high in turn two on the restart losing several spots then stopped up against the wall in turn two for caution four. Rhebergen, Hall, Southwell and Boardman were the leaders. Rhebergen continued to smoke as Hall moved alongside but could not make the pass. Rhebergen’s mechanical problems came to a head with twenty-six laps complete causing caution five after Rhebergen did a half spin to a stop in turn three. Hall was the new leader with Davies second and Southwell third. Southwell became the sole owner of the second spot on the restart as Hall led by five car lengths. Ten laps remained with Hall in the middle groove and Southwell trying the high side. Hall started coming out high to slow the charge of Southwell and the two make contact on lap thirty five and again on lap 36. Southwell would have to make his move down low. Southwell made that move after the two to go signal but on the last lap lost the lead to Hall in turn two but fought back through the final two corners crossing the line in a photo finish with Hall in front by .043 of a second. It was Halls second win of the season at Stateline and his second UEMS victory.

Rob Bates and John Haggerty brought out the yellow on the initial lap of the Crate Late Model feature. Jason Genco and Bob Dorman were in row one with Justin Tatlow and Justin Smith in row two. Just as the lap finished Breyton Santee caused caution two. The next restart saw Bates and Smith spin for yellow number three and just one lap had been completed. It was Genco, Dorman and Tatlow on the restart. Tatlow was tagged by Carley in turn four for caution four with three laps complete. Two more laps were complete when Craig Dean and Smith spun in turn one for caution five. Twenty-two cars remained for the lap six restart.

A lap one spin by Dick Barton slowed the Super Late Model feature with Bump Hedman leading and Randy Lobb second. Doug Eck was third on the restart and passed Hedman as lap three ended for the lead. David Scott was the next by Hedman and Dutch Davies moved up for his shot at Hedman. Eck and Scott were running up against the fence with Davies now third down low. Davies put Scott back to third and caught Eck on lap ten to challenge for the lead. It was side-by-side on lap eleven then Davies firmly in first on lap twelve Scott was third still up against the fence with Lobb fourth and Dave Hess Jr. fifth. Davies started to work lap traffic with ten laps remaining and Hess, Lobb and Scott were contending for third. Lobb took the spot and Scott moved down to the low groove with Hess remaining high. Davies stretched his lead even in lap traffic and with two to go led Eck by nearly a straight away. Davies took the checkers with Eck a distant second, Lobb third and Scott held off Hess for fourth.

The UEMS Non-Qualifiers race was the next feature up and a lap three spin by Clint Brady caused the first yellow as Rich Michael Jr. led followed by Jack Young and Alex Froman. Chad Silleman and Vic Vena tangled as the green flew for caution two. After the restart Michael was the leader with Froman second, Young third and Steve Dixon fourth. Eric Pangrazio caused caution three with a spin in turn four with seven laps complete.

Another spin by Pangrazio caused caution four with three laps remaining. Michael ran the final laps unchallenged for his first win of the season.

Pole sitter Mike Moon led the first lap of the Limited Late Model feature. A lap two spin by Chad Schauers brought out the first yellow. Moon just barely stayed in front as Dustin Eckman and Chris Ottaway pressed him on both sides. Ottaway moved to the high side and Moon followed by Eckman stayed low. Ottaway was able to take the lead on the back stretch then lose it coming out of turn four. Eckman moved to the bottom on lap five and hit turn three too hard spinning the car for yellow two. Ottaway was the next to try the high side making the pass stick as the yellow appeared for Chris Ward stopped in turn three. Ottaway, Moon, Steve Moynihan, Steve Kania and Mike Moore were the leaders. Moynihan took second on the restart and Kania followed him through for third as Moon fell to fourth. A spin by Ward allowed the field to close with Ottaway for a last lap dash to the finish. Ottaway won the dash and Kania lost to Moynihan by half a car length at the line. It was the first win of the season for Ottaway.
