At Mount Vernon Raceway, there were 18 UMP Late Models on hand for the Saturday race program. Butch Smith win the timetrails with a time of 14.222. Only half of the field timed in the 14's.
In the dash, Rodney Melvin took the win with Bobby Melvin, Jimmy Burwell, Butch Smith and Bill Millikan following. In the first heat, Jeff Johns got the victory over Steve Lampley, Brent Kreke, Vince Grondzki, Donie Tudor and Tony Boyles. The second heat saw the win go to Scott Hutchinson over Kyle Monroe, Terry james, Kevin Seago, James Burrell and Rylan Dagg.
The 25 lap feature did something that is rare at Mt Vernon as it went 25 laps of green flag racing. Bobby Melvin got the jump on brother Rodney and went on to hold off Rodney for his first win in 2002. Rodney finished second, but pressuring his brother the whole way. Millikan moved up to third from his fifth starting spot while Morris held on for fourth. Finishing fifth was Burwell. Rounding out the top ten was Johns, Monroe, Hutchinson, Kreke and Grondzki.
