Day One is over for the 13th annual running of Napa Auto Parts Idaho 200. Twenty Five Super Late Models towed in to attempt to qualify for the 200 lap main event, but only 22 cars would make it. Larry Todd was the first to drop out, as he suffered from engine problems in the final practice. During the last chance qualifier, Chris Kellogg hit the wall and Tom Plybon’s car filled up with smoke. So, there you have it. It was Jay Sauls on the pole with the fast time of 13.181 and Johnny Gamble picking up the 22nd spot.
The NW Outlaw Figure 8′s ran their first race ever at Stateline Speedway tonight. Twelve cars started their 50 lap figure 8 main, and all of them towed in from out of town. The shortest tows were from the Seattle area, and some of the longest tows were from California and Indiana. Those boys were not disappointed with their long tows, as the 00 of Corey Turner from Indiana won the main and the 38 of Kendall Scheidecker from California took second.
