Pontoon Beach, IL (May 1, 2005) Another huge field of racecars were on hand at Tri-City Speedway Sunday night. There were 135 cars that checked in through the gates to compete.

Mark Oller of Highland, IL claimed the UMP (United Midwestern Promoters) Late Model main event. Twenty-nine UMP Late Models took to the track to battle for a spot in the twenty-four car main event.

Oller, who started on the third row inside of the main event, quickly worked his way to the front and took the lead from last week's winner Michael Kloos on lap eight. Oller was able to work the lapped traffic superbly and soon had opened up a comfortable lead over Kloos. A late caution with just two laps remaining tightened the field again, but Oller still had four lapped cars in between him and the second place running Kloos on the restart. Oller roared on to claim the win. Kloos held off the hard charging Matt Taylor who started twenty-first in the main event and moved all the way to a third place finish. Ed Dixon claimed the fourth position while Frankie Martin rounded out the top five. Oller became the fourth different winner in as many nights in the UMP Late Model division at Tri-City Speedway.

Brian Shaw of Robinson, IL made his visit of 2005 to Tri-City Speedway and he bested a stellar field of UMP Modifieds. Shaw took the lead on the opening lap from the front row pole starting position and led all twenty-laps of the main event. Ray Walsh put the heat on Shaw early in the main event. Walsh used the higher line around the 1/4 mile track and moved up quickly from his fourth row starting position to battle with Shaw on lap three. However, the track conditions would change and Walsh began to fade back as the race reach the half way point. Bobby Bittle took over the second position from Walsh and took the runner up spot. Leroy Haney also moved up from a fourth row starting position and claimed the third spot. Walsh held on to claim the fourth spot and John Stanton moved up from deep in the field to finish fifth.

Steve Maisel claimed his second consecutive Sportsman main event. Maisel and Dennis Wernle battled endlessly for the first half of the event as they swapped the lead several times. Wernle would suffer mechanical problems and drop out of the event around the half way point. Jimmy Cummins moved up and put the pressure on Maisel as the event wound down. Cummins came up short and settled for the second spot. Mark Bohnenstiehl, Don Patton and Bryan Slover filled out the top five positions.

Brad Yotter claimed the Street Stock main event. Robbie Benson worked his way up through the field and was reeling in Yotter near the end, but he would come up short and settle for second. Sam Kizer took third.

Josh Porch took the victory in the Factory Stock division. Porch led the entire event and was basically unchallenged for the top spot. Ken Bell and Ryan Kress took the second and third positions.
