Pontoon Beach, IL (April 9, 2006) A huge field of racecars came out for the first night of racing in 2006. There were 142 racers that signed in to compete in the five different classes that were competing, including thirty-seven entries for the Northern AllStar/Challenge of Champions Series special event. Wes Steidinger of Fairbury, IL put down the fastest qualifying mark of the evening.

Rusty Schlenk of Jackson, MI outdueled Brian Shirley of Chatham, IL in the first qualifying heat as the two put on classic battle for the entire ten lap event. Springfield, IL's Steve Sheppard topped New Berlin, WI driver Bret Sievert to claim the second qualifying heat. Randy Korte of Highland, IL who was piloting the #69 machine normally driven by Terry Eaglin after Korte's ride suffered engine problems before the nights events got underway, bested Wes Steidinger in the third qualifying heat race and Ed Dixon of Washington, MO made a dramatic last lap pass on Ryan Dauber of Tonica, IL. The last chance qualifiers were won by Ron Sensel and Bryan Collins.

Randy Korte started on the pole for the main event and jumped out front and simply dominated the thirty lap main event. Korte led wire-to-wire and was only challenged for the lead while he worked his way through slower traffic by Steve Sheppard. Sheppard had his own battle to hold onto the second spot as Wes Steidinger kept the pressure on him the entire second half of the event. Rusty Schlenk came home in the fourth position and Highland, IL's, Michael Kloos completed the top five.

Ray Walsh brought out his broom and swept the events in the UMP Modified division as he too was in a borrowed car after he had mechanical problems earlier in the week with his own. He stepped into the 2F normally driven by Todd Ferber and led all twenty laps of the event. The battle raged behind him as six cars fought it out for the second spot. All six swapping the positions back and fourth over the closing laps with Tim Hancock holding everyone off to claim the second spot. Tommie Seets, Jr. crossed the line in third with Bobby Martintoni fourth and B.J. Seets rounding out the top five.

Steve Maisel gave another strong performance in the UMP Sportsman division as he also swept the night's events and sailed to victory over Troy Medley, Trista Stevenson, JR Benton and Jeff LeBaube.

The Street Stocks battled it out over the entire fifteen laps and the top four cars raced in a tight group swapping the lead out lap after lap until Ricky Huebner took command with just a couple of laps remaining and charged on to the win. Matt Koch, Sam Kizer, Josh Jackson and Eric Rensing completed the top five.

Gary Price won his first ever Factory Stock feature as once again five different cars battled for the lead and swapped it lap after lap as they worked their way through lapped traffic. Chris Fisher and Price battled side by side as the crossed the finish line with Price just having a nose in front. Aaron Wood, Ryan Eilers and T.J. Eilers completed the top five.

Tri-City Speedway will take next Sunday off for Easter and will return to action on April 23rd when the CARS Late Model Series will make a special appearance along with Tri-City Speedway's regular show.
