Pontoon Beach, IL (July 17, 2005) Shannon Babb of Moweaqua, IL roared to his fourteenth win in the grueling United Midwestern Promoters (UMP) Summer Nationals Series. Babb has won all but eight of the twenty-two events that kicked off back on June 24th and winds through eight different states in the Midwest with racing almost every night at different tracks.

Babb took the lead in the main event on the opening lap and held off the challenges of Kentucky's Steve Francis for all forty laps and claimed the $10,000 first place prize. Francis followed Babb across the line to earn the second position. Following the top two across the line was fast qualifier Jeep Van Wormer who claimed the third spot. Brian Birkhofer took the fourth position and Brian Shirley rounded out the top five.

Bobby Martintoni of Livingston, IL took home the victory in the UMP Modified division. Martintoni, who's car had a severe vibration in the closing laps, nursed his car home just ahead of second place finisher Rusty Griffaw. Ray Walsh wasn't as fortunate as his car succumb to mechanical problems after dominating the first half of the main event. Jim Lafferty claimed the third position, followed by Steve Meyer, Jr., and pole sitter Chad Fraunfelder completed the top five.

Dennis Wernle continued his dominance in the Sportsman division by earning his third straight and eighth overall main event win of the season. Wernle led wire to wire in the fifteen lap main event that went green the entire distance. Don Grimm claimed the second position with Terry Chester taking the third spot. Marty Kopp took the fourth spot and David Walker rounded out the top five.

Next Sunday night, July 24th, Tri-City Speedway presents Fan Appreciation Night with grandstand admission only $5 and kids 12 and under FREE. There will also be a nickel race for kids.
