The Mini Stock feature was a great chase for the lead that Nick Hebrank held. The only caution came out for Cody Kinsey's spin on the backstretch in which the 11 came trapped by the mud. The likes of Shirlene Hammond, Ray Folwell, and Roberto Morfin, Jr. were given the task of chasing Hebrank, but he held his 9H at the point until the end. Shirlene Hammond had a career night with a heat win earlier to add with her runner-up finish, Ray Folwell built on his points lead with a 3rd place finish, Stephen Hahlbaugh would settle for 4th, and "TacoSon" Roberto Morfin, Jr. rounded out the top 5. However, after a teardown in tech, everyone moved up 1 spot as Hebrank was illegal. Shirlene Hammond took career win #1, Folwell moved up to 2nd, Hahlbaugh up on to the podium, "TacoSon" a strong 4th, and Brittany Yates put the 53 in the top 5.

Feature #3 was the UMP Open-Wheel Modifieds with 25 scheduled laps. Down the backstretch on lap 1, Kyle Bronson and Larry Mott found themselves out of line and facing a different direction. The complete restart went 1 completed before Jim Smith had a problem down the backstretch and found the wall. On lap 5, Larry Mott spun where he had earlier as Garret Stewart, Jim Passino, and Ronald Soltis made contact and traded sheet metal. At the same time, Scott Kurtzner found himself trapped in the dirt at the bottom of the course. Lap 12 saw Kevin Bryant spin in turn 4 forcing a yellow flag. As the race progressed, Steve Whitener took the lead from pole sitter Jason Davis. After 4 laps, under a cution for Scott Kurtzner, the Mathews Motorsports cars pulled to the pit entrance for new helmets with fresh tear-offs. Twice on lap 19 debris was found on the clay. Ronald Soltis set up a Green/White- Checkered that cut the feature down by 3 laps. Whitener held on to the win as Jeff Mathews held on to the points lead with 2nd, Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. finished 3rd, Jason Davis a strong and much needed 4th, and Donnie Hall rounded out the top 5.

The Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks were given extra motivation with $500 on the line and double points. Lap 2 was the first caution as Richard Calmes spun the 4C and Jason Blackmer stalled, ending his night. Another lap went in the books and John Thorpe made contact with Tim Mathieu, both going to the rear with Mathieu spinning to the back. The lap 4 caution was thrown for debris. Chris Shea had a flat on lap 8 which slowed his 76 significantally and the yellow was brought out once more. Todd Roberts found himself in the mud at the bottom of the turn, ending his night at what would be 2 laps early. Gordon Cade and Jeff Baer made contact setting up the Green/White- Checkered. Chad Scranton won his 2nd of 2011 with team-mate Brian Mullins in 3rd. Luke Sadler had some new paint and put it in 2nd, Jonathan Appleby quietly drove to 4th, and Brian Shea rounded out the top 5.

The final feature of the night was the Gladiators. On lap 1, Jason Brown slowed and Robert Graham had nowhere to go but the back of the brand new #112. Both were okay, but the cars weren't as fortunate. David Anthony spun on lap 4 and would have some work to do if he wanted a 'money finish' on the night. Lap 12 saw the S&S Roofing Cars of Larry Langston and Steve Cox almost collide as Langston had lost his wheel. Langston's wheel was long gone as it bounced over the backstretch fence. The third Green/White-Checkered of the night wasn't enough for Steve Cox to make it 5-0 in 2011, but Scott Sullivan doesn't mind. Sullivan was 1st with Cox 2nd, Reid Christensen 3rd, David Anthony drove back to 4th, and Jerry Taylor was last of the 'money cars' in 5th.
