POST FALLS, Idaho — Aaron Nevers driver of the #17 Bobs Body & Fender Firebird entered the night with a 21 point lead over Ned Penningtons #55. Nevers began the night with the top qualifying spot for the final night of racing for the State Line Speedway Street Stocks. Confident after his qualifying lap Nevers continued his quest for the championship and rounded out the night with a sweep of all events in the Street Stock division. Mike Burkhart #58 did not go down with a fight and kept Nevers on his toes with some great side by side racing action all night long. Crowd favourite Will Whitlow #56 also picked up the needed points to secure a second place points finish for 2011.

"The Northwest Modifieds once again showed why they are still one of the premier divisions in the Northwest."

The Northwest Modifieds once again showed why they are still one of the premier divisions in the Northwest, Frankie Volzs Jr. entered the night with the points lead with Greg Ochs in second followed by James Spiering III in third. With a short car count drivers certainly did not disappoint the crowd with an action packed heat race followed by a 50 lap main with racing for positions taking place for the complete 50 laps. With the field set and a complete invert in place drivers took the green flag, Volz #98 jumped out to the lead and opened an impressive lead over the field. Back in the rear of the field Greg Ochs #1 had his hands full as he made his way through the field and picked his way to second place. Lap 35 things looked like they were going all in favour of Frankie Volz Jr. when the fist of only one caution came out on lap 38. Volz #98 now with the company of Greg Ochs #1 on his rear bumper and the race to the finish was on. Ochs patiently waited and from lap 43 Ochs made his charge and pursuit for the lead. Side by side exciting action and fans on their feet, lap 47 Ochs drove to the outside of the front stretch and make his way forward around Volz and take the lead and finish. Northwest Modifieds return on September 17th for their championship final.
