Pontoon Beach, IL (October 9, 2005) Tri-City Speedway presented "Cheater's Night" better known as an open competition show in which many drivers and crews spent many hours creating some unique body designs on their racecars. Everything from large plexiglass sideboards to sprint car wings to spoilers mounted in all types of different configurations on all the different classes of cars.

In the late model division, two cars with huge plexiglass side panels put on a dominating performance as they ran away from the field during the first twenty-four laps of the twenty-five lap main event. But it was the final lap when disaster struck for the leader, Kyle Steffens. While battling with Dick Taylor, the other car with huge plexiglass side panels, Steffens tangled with the car of Billy Laycock as he tried to work through several cars they were putting a lap down. Laycock got out of shape in front of the leaders and was almost complete spun when Steffens made contact, completely spinning both Laycock and himself. The caution waved and Steffens was forced to restart at the rear of the field on the restart. Dick Taylor drove away on the restart and claimed the victory. Brian Dively was credited with a second place finish and Mike Hammerle was third after Mark Oller and Kyle Steffens were penalized for jumping the restart. Oller was credited with fourth and Steffens fifth, the last car on the lead lap.

Joe Dresch moved back behind the wheel of his modified after piloting a late model for most of the season and put on a dominating performance. Dresch led all twenty laps of the main event as he pretty much went unchallenged for the top spot. Tim Hancock found a fast line around the top and came on strong in the closing stages of the race and claimed the second position. Jim Shereck overcame handling problems caused by his huge plexiglass sideboards in his qualifying heat and finished third after starting seventeenth. Rusty Griffaw took the fourth spot and Bobby Martintoni completed the top five.

Two sportsman cars with big sprint car wings mounted on top proved too much for the rest of the field as they claimed the two top spots. Gary Walker made a late race pass on the ageless veteran Lenny "FIREBALL" Garson to earn the victory. Garson took the second spot and the young lady Trista Stevenson, who battled with the two front runners throughout the main event, took the third position. Jerry Kaufman took the fourth spot and Jason Keller rounded out the top five.

Kevin Lee claimed his first feature event win ever in the Street Stock division. Lee's car had the body modified with a "HALLOWEEN" look including a skull mounted on the front of the hood that actually had a light flashing in it. His car was also fast as he easily won the main event. Tommy Gegg picked up two spots in the final couple of laps and claimed the second position. Josh Jackson, Todd Erickson and Eric Skinner competed the top five.

John Leahy led wire-to-wire in the Dwarf Car division as he held off a hard charging Ron Wick in the closing laps to earn the victory and points championship. Tony Hobson took the third spot with Jim Black and Brad Paquett rounding out the top five.

Rob Shaw took the win in the Factory Stock division. Five cars battled fiercly for the lead in the closing laps but Shaw held them off at the line. Matt Hamblin took the second position with Justin Shaw third, Nick Knebel fourth and Rob Lee fifth. Trey Harris, who battled with the leaders and crossed the line fourth was disqualified for not having the minimum air pressure in his tires.
