What won the race: Doug Eck of Corry, Pa., inherited the lead when Mike Pegher Jr. lost a motor on lap 26 and held off frequent Greg Oakes challenges over the remainder of the 38-lap distance to pick up his first career UFO Championship Challenge feature victory. Eck earned $2,500 in winning the opening event of the two-day Stateline Shootout.
Key notes: Matt Urban paced laps 1-9. ... Oakes took command for a single lap on the 10th circuit before Pegher grabbed the point on lap 11 and held it until his demise. ... UFO points leader Dylan Yoder struggled, coming home with an 18th place finish after winning a consolation event. ... Max Blair drew a lap-five caution. ... Rob Blair, John Lobb, Chad Valone and Bump Hedman collided one lap later, eliminating all but Hedman. ... Dutch Davis slowed on lap 10. ... Waylon Wagner and Christ Hackett were charged with a lap-14 yellow flag. .... After Pegher's demise with 25 laps complete, the final yellow came on lap 31. ... Joe Layfield scratched from the feature, while Kirk Bradley, Rick Tripodi, Jason Dobson, Ryan Scott and Bob Dorman failed to qualify. ... Series action continues Saturday with a 55-lap, $5,000-to-win program at Stateline.
On the move: John Volpe of Lakeville, N.Y., improved 13 positions to finish ninth.
