Pontoon Beach, IL (August 21, 2005) The defending UMP Late Model National Champion and current UMP Late Model National point leader Rodney Melvin of Logan, IL put on a dominating performance as he swept the night's events. Melvin, who had to start his qualifying heat race from the back after being late to the staging area, quickly powered his machine to the front of the field and went on to win his qualifying heat. He then backed that up with a victory in the dash which gave him a front row starting position in the main event.

Melvin jumped into the lead at the start of the main event but Wisconsin's Jayme Zidar quickly moved in behind Melvin and began challenging Melvin for the top spot. Zidar was able to get the front nose of his car under Melvin several times in the early stages of the event, but each time Melvin would pull back into the lead. Randy Korte worked his way toward the front and slipped past Zidar and into the second position with just eight laps remaining. A late caution allowed Korte to restart right on the bumper of Melvin, but Melvin pulled away on the restart and went on to claim the checkered flag. Korte crossed the line in second with Zidar third. Tri-City Speedway UMP Late Model track point leader Steve Sheppard took the fourth position with Mark Oller rounding out the top five.

Tommie Seets, Jr. took the lead on lap four from pole sitter Leroy Haney and then held off Ray Walsh for the remainder of the twenty lap UMP Modified main event to earn the victory. Ricky Huebner had his best run of the 2005 racing season as he took the third spot in the finishing order. Bobby Martintoni crossed the line in fourth with Bob Stanton completing the top five.

Jimmy Cummins brought out the broom and swept the action in the Sportsman division. Cummins led every lap of his qualifying heat, every lap of the dash and every lap of the main event as he cruised to a comfortable win. Don Grimm claimed the second position and Trista Stevenson had her best finish of the season as she claimed the third spot. Bryan Slover took the fourth position and Ron Petty took the fifth spot.

Sam Kizer claimed his ninth Street Stock main event win of the 2005 season at Tri-City Speedway. Once again it was another nail biter as Kizer, Tommy Gegg and Robby Benson swapped positions lap after lap. Benson, found a fast line around the 1/4 mile oval after an early caution, took the lead from Kizer. But Kizer fought back on the low side as the two race side-by-side for several laps with Gegg right on the back bumper. The higher line that Benson was running began to go away as the race progressed, allowing Kizer to take the win and allowing Gegg to taket he second spot. Benson settled for a third place finish with Jeff Nash taking fourth and Josh Jackson fifth.

Ralph Bradford jumped out front on the opening lap of the Factory Stock main event and led wire-to-wire to pick up the victory. Ken Bell followed him across the line for the second spot with David Pulley, Jr. completing the top three.
