Street stocks were the first feature races. Chip Shaddox and Brian Welliver raced side by sided early on battling for the lead.

Moss was uninjured but his night was done. The field took the green with Shaddox at the point with Welliver and Henry Whalley hot on his heels. Shawn Hendren worked his way into the mix running the high side and looked to be a threat to win until engine problems retired him for the evening. Shaddox Welliver and Whalley battled in a tight group for the lead with Shaddox taking the win.
