September 12, 2009 @ Stateline Speedway. Qualifying was close for all the cars with the tightest field in recent history. Billy Husk, driving the Armstrong car, was the fast qualifier over Shawn Priest by one thousandth of a second. Sixteen cars started the main event but several dropped out with mechanical problems. Husk and Justin Robideaux were
involved in a mid race crash which ended their nights. Avoiding trouble and lapped traffic, Priest held off a hard charging Kenny Iverson and took his second main event win of the last three races. For complete results, click here.

August 29, 2009 @ Spokane County Raceway. The SPOKANE PRODUCE 25 was a mid-season addition to the 2009 Northwest Early Stocks racing schedule. Twelve teams were able to make the adjustments to their cars and find the time to run at the legendary 1/2 mile oval. Billy Husk, driving the Armstrong's #20, dominated the evening which started when he set the fast time in qualifying. Shawn Priest, driving his familiar #71, gave Husk a good challenge in the final but there was no denying the Armstrong team, making them the fourth different main event winner of the seven races contested so far this season. Mike Robideaux in the #52, Gil Rapp Jr. in the #19 and Will Krasselt in the #10 had a spirited battle in the main with Robideaux hanging on for the third place trophy.
