Pontoon Beach, IL (September 24, 2005) Ed Shamhart of Olney, IL topped a stellar field of UMP Modifieds at Tri-City Speedway and claimed the largest payday ever for a modified race at the track. Thirty-three UMP Modifieds checked in the gate to compete on the big flat 1/2 mile dirt oval that would pay the winner $5,000.

The night's action was kicked off with the thirty-three competitors taking to the track for two laps of qualifying. Scott Weber of Festus, MO turned in the fastest qualifying lap as he circled the speedplant in 22.856 seconds.

Weber would back up his qualifying effort by cruising to victory in the first qualifying heat race. Shane Cockrum roared to victory in the second qualifying heat race with Ed Shamhart taking the third heat and Mike Harrison picked up the victory in the fourth qualifying heat race. Weber would come back and claim the win in the dash as well.

Weber and Shamhart made up the front row of the twenty-four car starting grid by virtue of finishing first and second in the dash. The two would race side-by-side for the first two and half laps before Weber put his machine out front. The caution would wave on lap four as Brent Keyes spun in turn one. Weber reassumed the lead on the restart and opened up about a ten car length lead. Then, as the race neared the halfway point, disaster nearly struck for Weber as Everett Bradham spun in turn one as Weber was closing in on him to put him a lap down. Weber was able to get his car locked down and missed the spun car of Bradham but in doing so, Weber made significant contact with the outside guardrail with the right rear of his machine. Weber was able to continue and reassumed the lead on the restart. The race would see one last caution when Matt Mevert spun in turn one. Mevert, at the time of the spin, was racing for the second spot with Shamhart when Mevert, Shamhart and Matt Goulden all made contact getting into turn one. Weber once again led the field to the green flag on the restart but the handling began to go away on his machine as the laps wound down. With just five laps remaining, Shamhart moved past Weber and pulled away to take the victory. Jeff Leka also worked his way past Weber in the closing laps to take a second place finish. Weber held on and claimed the third spot. Matt Goulden crossed the line in fourth and Jim Shereck charged through the field after starting seventeenth to take the fifth position.

Persistant rain showers ended up forcing a postponement of the Sportsman and Street Stock main events. The details on rescheduling those events will be released at a later date.
