Pontoon Beach, IL (June 22, 2007) Bryan Collins of Elsberry, MO won the Super Late Model feature event. The Super Late Model feature event provided one of the best races of the season on the new 3/8 mile oval. Rusty Griffaw jumped out to the early lead and led the field till the first caution fell on lap ten. Once the field was restarted, four cars of Rusty Griffaw, Mark Voigt, Bryan Collins and Mark Faust began a battle at the front that kept the fans on their feet. On lap eighteen, as Rusty Griffaw and Mark Voigt battled for the lead, the two made contact down the front straightaway. Their two machines both spun as they reached the end of the straightaway with Voigt's machine sliding into the outside wall. Both cars pulled away on their own, but they were both placed at the rear of the field on the restart. Collins took over the point on the restart and battled with Mark Faust and Chris Smyser in the closing laps. Collins got into the wall slightly on several occassions through the turns, but Faust and Smyser couldn't find a way past and Collins took the win. Mark Faust was second and Smyser was third. Rick Salter took the fourth spot and Tim Ratajczyk completed the top five.

Marty Smith, Jr. put on a dominating performance in the Modified division. Smith jumped out front on the start and pulled away to a full straightaway lead over Tim Hancock, Ray Walsh, Bobby Martintoni and Brent Mullins before a caution late in the race closed up the field. On the restart, Smith held off a challenge by Walsh and went on to victory. Walsh was second with Martintoni third, Mullins fourth and Hancock fifth.

Nick Lyons was also dominating in the CARS Late Model division. Rylan Dagg got the early lead and led the first six laps before Lyons found a way around him. Lyons then pulled away to win in convincing fashion. Dagg would take second with Ron Sensel third, Darin Walker fourth and Ray Emling, Jr. fifth.

Tommy Gegg made a late race pass on Josh Jackson to earn the victory in the Street Stock division. It appeared Richie Gabriel took the third spot but a post race inspection found him illegal. Ricky Huebner, Robby Benson and Fred Sparks, Jr. would complete the top five.

Ryan Eilers won the Factory Stock feature over David Shaw and Chad Burgess. Andy Jackson and Nick Knebel complete the top five.
