Pontoon Beach, IL (April 10, 2005) A huge field of racers came out to compete in the inaguaral event under the new ownership of G&G Motorsports at the Tri-City Speedway presented by Missouri/Illinois Dodge Dealers in Pontoon Beach, IL. The overflowing field of racecars quickly filled up the pit area, forcing track official's to come up with an alternate plan for pit parking. A solution was quickly found and some teams were allowed to pit on the back straight-away and turns of the 1/2 mile track since it wasn't being used at this event.

Thirty-six United Midwestern Promoters (UMP) Late Models signed in the gate and provided some heart pounding wheel to wheel action throughout the night. Randy Korte of Highland, IL, set the pace for all twenty-five laps to grab the win. Ed Dixon of Washington, MO, kept the pressure on Korte for the entire event. However, Korte worked the lapped traffic masterfully late in the race and went on to victory. Michael Kloos followed Dixon across the line to finish third. Mark Oller and Mark Voigt completed the top five.

The UMP Modified division provided an equally entertaining battle as Rusty Griffaw of Festus, MO out-dueled John Stanton and Ray Walsh to claim the main event. Walsh battled with Griffaw early in the event before Stanton found his way past Walsh about half way through the event. Jim Lafferty, who started tenth in the main event, worked his way through traffic to finish fourth. John Seets, Jr. rounded out the top five. After a caution on lap two, the twenty-four car field went the remaining eighteen laps under green.

Jimmy "The Rocket" Cummins snagged the lead on lap three and pulled away to a dominating win in the Sportsman division. The Sportsman main event went wire to wire under green flag conditions, allowing Cummins to pull away and leaving the rest of the field to battle for second place. Brandon Hogenson claimed the second spot as he crossed the line ahead of Bryan Slover and Marty Kopp as they had a three way battle going for the second position. Slover slipped past Kopp on the final lap to finish third. Matt Koch took fifth as he followed Kopp across the finish line.

Jeremy Pate claimed the Street Stock main event in his first ever visit to Tri-City Speedway. Pate held off Brad Yotter who could continually get a fender along side of Pate, but just couldn't make the pass. Darrell Morey, Robby Benson and Josh Jackson rounded out the top five.

Aaron Wood took the top spot in the Factory Stock division. Wood held off several challenges from different drivers throughout the main event. David Pulley, Jr. and Ken Bell completed the top three spots.
