Hess Jr. doubles up with two big feature victories at Stateline
The Stateline racing family remembered Paula Southwell, daughter of E-Mod racer Butch Southwell, on Saturday.
Lost in a tragic motorcycle accident two weeks ago, Paula Southwell was honored with an E-Mod Memorial race in her name. It started with a four-wide salute and ended with Dave Hess Jr. in victory lane.
Hess Jr. passed Boom Briggs in the early laps of the Super Late Model race and led the remaining laps. Robbie Blair followed but could not catch the high-flying Hess. Then Hess exchanged his Super Late for his E-Mod and came from fourth to win the Paula Southwell E-Mod Memorial. Hess took the lead from early leader Leonard Enos with a lap 19 pass and out-ran Randy Hall for the win.
Brandon Groters made a late race pass of point leader Brian Crandall to win a caution-filled Street Stock feature.
Jim Kibbe led every lap of the Super Sportsman feature, repeating the feat he first accomplished two weeks ago.
Scott Gurdak won his first Crate Late Model feature leading every lap in the caution-filled event.
Chris Ottaway led every lap of the caution-free Limited Late feature for his first win of the season.
Steve Keith led every lap of the Super Challenger event for his first win of the season.
