Justin Tatlow started off the pole in the Crate Late feature and led the first circuit. Chad Silleman came from fourth for the runner up spot with pole sitter Ward Schell third. At the end of the first five laps Tatlow was quickly catching the field when the yellow flew for Jason Genco. Cody Mason failed to negotiate turn one on the restart for yellow number two. Zack Carley was the next to have problems with a half spin in turn four. Eight laps were complete. Bob Dorman was third after the restart with Schell fourth. After lap ten Skip Jackson, Mason and Wade Mohawk tangled for caution three. Caution four collected Dereck Frank, Mark Thrasher and Brian Haggerty with thirteen laps completed. Tatlow was still in control with Silleman second and Schell back in third and veteran John Haggerty fourth. Tatlow won going away for his second win of the season.

Greg Oakes and Chad Valone were on the front row of the Super Late Model feature and Oakes led the first two circuits giving way to Valone on lap three. Dave Scott moved up alongside Oakes on lap four and completed the pass two laps later then on lap seven Scott got up into the marbles making hard contact with the turn one concrete. Valone, Oakes, Andy Boozel, Scott Gurdak and Chris Hackett were the restart leaders. Hackett passed Gurdak for fourth and Dick Barton was pressing Gurdak for fifth. Gurdak lost the position to Barton on lap 13. Barton continued advancing passing Hackett two laps later. The top three remained with Valone firmly in control. Valone was pinned to the outside of the speedway while Oakes went high in turns one and two and low thru three and four. Oakesís strategy worked with two to go passing Valone in turn four. Valone caught a piece of the turn one wall on that lap losing two more spots but fought back over the final two laps to finish second as Oakes got his first Stateline win.

Steve Kania led the first five laps of the Limited Late Model feature. Tyler Green caused the first caution. Kania, Jake Finnerty, Mike Moon, Dennis Asel and Ryan Scott were the top five. Scott picked up two spots right after the restart and Asel one as Moon fell to fifth. By lap ten Moon and Chris Ottaway had both passed Asel and were contesting the fourth spot. Green had more problems for yellow number two. Kania, Finnerty, Scott, Ottaway and Moon were the restart leaders. Scott took second on the restart with Ottaway in tow. Finnerty was now third. Scott slowed, pulling into the infield at the two to go signal moving Ottaway to second. Kania cruised for the last two laps for his third win in seven starts.

Greg Johnson led the first lap of the E-Mod feature and John Woodard Jr. led the second. John Boyd, Mike McGee, Steve Rex and Al Cressley brought out the first yellow in a tangle in turn four with three laps complete. Woodward, Johnson and Justin Carlson were the leaders. Randy Hall and Scott Gurdak caused yellow number two on the restart. Two laps were completed then Gurdak and Al Cressley caused caution three. Alex Froman caused caution three with seven laps complete. Woodward, Johnson and Justin Carlson led with John Boardman fourth and John Eschrich fifth. Boardman beat Justin Carlson for third with eleven laps complete and a multi car incident left Butch Southwell facing the wrong way for caution four. Kyle Bedell and John Boyd were also involved. Boardman charged by Johnson on lap fourteen. Johnson stopped up against a track tire for yellow five. Johnson was sent to the back for the restart. Woodward, Boardman, Eschrich and Justin Carlson were the leaders. With five laps remaining Woodward led Boardman by three car lengths and Boardmanís charge had ended. Chad Carlson lost a wheel and slid down the back stretch concrete for caution six. Woodward won his second of the season.

The leaders, Dan Nocero Jr. and Ben Burgess Jr. tangled on the start of the Super Sportsman feature but kept going as several cars stopped to avoid the leaders who pulled away. Burgess was the leader after the restart then the yellow flew for Jason Schumaker in turn four. Wade Watson became the new leader on the restart. The race remained green for two more laps then Hank Francis stopped for caution three. Watson nearly tangled with a lap car on lap seven then narrowly missed Mike Genco who had spun in turn four. Nocero made an inside move to pass Burgess after the restart for second and Watson led. Jake Eller stopped on the speedway on the white flag lap setting up a one lap dash for the win. Watson was up to the challenge winning his first of the season.

Todd Bacon spun on the first lap of the Street Stock feature as Chris Withers led. Jeremy Williams was second with Kyle Weilacher third. Withers was into lap traffic on lap six then the yellow flew for Chery Sweet stopped in turn four. Several cars tangled on the restart. Jeff Keith, Mike Brown, Jerry Fish and James Britt were some of the cars involved. Jeffery Keith spun to a stop in turn four for caution four with eight laps complete. Elaine Best lost a wheel in turn four for caution five with twelve laps down. Withers showed why he has won all of the Street Stock features this season in an unchallenged green to checkers run for win number seven.
