September 25, 2010 @ Stateline Speedway - Great weather greated the racers and fans for the Northwest Early Stocks last race of 2010. With fifteen cars and three other classes running that night, the pits were full and the racing action was great. Shawn Priest was fast as always and started out the night being the low qualifier for the fifth time this year. Ken Iverson and Al Tuckness each got a trophy dash win while Bill Robideaux and Clayton Wood won the heat races. There was a couple of spins in the 25 lap main but they did not bring out cautions and at the end there was still a lot of close racing going on around the track. Justin Robideaux worked his way to the front early and stayed out front for his second main event win of the year.

September 11, 2010 @ Stateline Speedway - Remembering 9-11 and close racing action were the thoughts of the night for the Northwest Early Stocks. Fifteen cars were in attendance and they did not dissapoint. Gil Rapp Jr. started out the night by posting his second fast qualifier time in a row. There was close racing in the heats and dashes but no wrecks or yellow flags so all of the cars started the main event. Al Tuckness dropped out early with handling problems but the rest battled until the end with Ken Iverson eventually coming out on top to become the sixth different main event winner this year.

August 21, 2010 -  A late harvest caused several cars to miss the night's action. That, combined with a two car crash early in the night that took out the cars of Mike Robideaux and Gil Rapp Sr., resulted in a smaller than normal field starting the main event. However, the racers didn't let that slow them down and they raced hard for the main event win with Gil Rapp Jr. eventually coming out on top and a fast closing Larry Todd behind him. Rapp became the fifth different Northwest Early Stock main event winner this year. For complete results, click here!

August 6, 2010 - There are 12 tires left at the Stateline track. If they don't sell soon, he's going to send them back so he doesn't have to sit on them over the winter, so, if you're interested, you should get some soon.

July 30, 2010 @ Stateline Speedway - After a wet start to the season with two rain outs, we've had five great race nights and four different main event winners with Will Krasselt being the latest after he took the checkered flag followed by a fast closing Shawn Priest, who was also low qualifier.

July 10, 2010 @ Stateline Speedway - Larry Todd was the fast qualifier for the first time in his circle track career with a 15.23, which bested the other eight teams in attendence for this mid-season race. The Robideaux/Priest teams dominated the night, winning the trophy dash and heat race along with taking the top four spots in the main event.

June 26, 2010 @ Stateline Speedway - Newcomer to the Northwest Early Stocks, Clayton Wood, won the b-dash and the b-heat but was unable to make it a clean sweep in the main. Ken Iverson, driving the venerable yellow #33, got out front and it looked like he might win his first main event of the season. Shawn Priest, driving the #71, worked his way through the field and was right on Iverson for several laps. With a half a lap to go, Priest dove underneath Iverson coming out of turn #2. They were both side by side at about the middle of the straightaway when their cars tangled with Iverson getting the worse of it and Priest going on to win his second main event of the year. 

June 12, 2010 @ Stateline Speedway - Fourteen teams showed up to race for the second full night of racing for the Northwest Early Stocks after the year started with two rain outs. Shawn Priest set fast time and won the main event after an early crash took out the strong running car of the Armstrong team. For complete results, click here.

May 15, 2010 @ Stateline Speedway - Finally, sunny weather with no threat of rain on race night greeted the thirteen cars who were able to make it for our third scheduled race of the year. Four cars broke early in the night which left nine cars to start the main event. Will Behar dropped out early with mechanical problems. Mike Robideaux was leading a tight pack of cars when he spun. Shawn Priest was unable to avoid Robideaux and damaged his car enough that he was unable to continue. On the re-start, Larry Todd and Terry Armstrong Jr., quickly got around the 01 car to battle for the lead. Todd, who also won the A heat race, eventually pulled away to win his first ever main event in only his second year of racing.

May 1, 2010 @ Stateline Speedway

Rain cancelled the days activities before they could even get started!!!!

April 24, 2010 @ Stateline Speedway

With a rainy spring and the threat of more rain on this day, only eight drivers made the race. They were Shawn Priest, Larry Todd, Bill Robideaux, Clayton Wood, Duncan Behar, Will Behar, Justin Robideaux and T.J. Burke. After running a trophy dash and a heat race, the main event was cancelled as a cloud burst hit while the racers were in the staging lanes.
