Pontoon Beach, IL (June 8th, 2012) A solid field of great racers were on hand in all divisions and they were greeted with great weather along with a great crowd.

The UMP DIRTcar Late Model division didn’t disappoint the crowd as the top three put on a great battle over the final ten laps for the top spot. Dewayne Kiefer jumped out to the early lead and opened up a comfortable lead for the first half of the event. But just after half way, Chad Zobrist and Randy Korte began to reel Kiefer in. Zobrist would pull along side Kiefer for the lead on lap sixteen and two would race side by side for a couple of laps before Zobrist would get control of the top spot. Kiefer and Korte would then battle side by side for the second spot and then they both would move in on Zobrist for the lead. Zobrist would work the lapped traffic flawlessly and hold off their challenges to pick up his second win of 2012 at Tri-City Speedway. Korte would edge Kiefer out to finish second. Jason McBride would cross the line in fourth while Tim Manville rounded out the top five.

Michael Long picked up his fourth consecutive UMP DIRTcar Modified win at Tri-City Speedway. Long would once again dominate the feature event as he would win by nearly a full straight away over the second place finisher Tommie Seets, Jr. Seets would try and mount a challenge after the only caution on lap fourteen, but Long would pull away enroute to the win. Don Grimm worked the high side all twenty laps and brought home a third place finish. Rick Stevenson would cross the line in fourth while Josh Russell completed the top five.

Mark Oller and Aaron Heck put on a spectacular two car battle for the lead in the UMP DIRTcar Pro Late Model division. Oller and Heck would battle side by side and swap the lead several times over the entire twenty lap event. Oller would get the edge over Heck and pick up the win. Bobby Martintoni would finish a solid third with Derek Fetter getting fourth. Tim Hancock would round out the top five.

Jason Worley picked up his second Street Stock feature win of 2012 at Tri-City Speedway. Worley would have to hold off the challenge of Creg Cannon in the closing laps. Cannon would try and make a move under Worley in turns 1 and 2 on the final lap but made contact with Worley which sent Cannon spinning to the infield. Worley would go on to victory. Tommy Gaither would get the second spot with TJ Eilers finishing third. Erik Sedlack would get the fourth spot while Morris Booth crossed the line fifth.

Eldon Hemken claimed his first UMP DIRTcar Sport Compact feature win of 2012 at Tri-City Speedway. Hemken worked his way past early leader Vincent Shehorn and then held Shehorn and Rickey Carriker off over the final few laps to get the win. Carriker would get past Shehorn coming out of turn 4 heading to the checkered flag to finish second. Shehorn would settle for third while Sage Thornhill took fourth and Jacob Rexing fifth. Rexing had to start the feature in the back after borrowing the car normally driven by Joe Merritt to run the feature.
