Pontoon Beach, IL (July 20, 2007) Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR picked up the $10,000 victory at Tri-City Speedway's Lucas Oils Series Miller Lite 50. Don O'Neal took the lead at the drop of the green flag from his front row pole starting position and led the first fifteen circuits. Moyer, who started third, slipped back to fifth in the first stages of the event but found the fast line around the 3/8 mile oval after about ten laps and started moving back toward the front. Once Moyer got to the lead, he held off all challenges and led the last half of the event to earn the win.

Shannon Babb, who started on the outside of the front row, battled early on with O'Neal for the lead, then slipped back to fifth before coming on in the later laps and earning a third place finish behind O'Neal.

Terry English, who had to use a provisional to earn a starting spot in the main event, charged through the field and picked up a fourth place finish.

Earl Pearson, Jr. finally got things going in the closing laps and passed several cars near the end to earn the fifth position.

Bryan Collins, the defending track point champion at Tri-City Speedway had a stellar run as he started in the twentieth position and charged all the way up to the third position in the first twelve laps. However, some suspension damage to his car late in the race would cost him several spots as he ended up eighth at the checkered flag.

A stellar field of thirty-eight UMP DIRTcar Modifieds were on hand at Tri-City Speedway for the $1,000 to win special event. Fans were treated to a spectacular race Jeff Leka took the early lead from pole sitter Chad Kinder. Leka led the first fought off the challenges off Kinder and then Mike Harrison as he led the first eleven circuits of the twenty-five lap main event. Harrison would finally make a successful bid for the lead on lap twelve after several previous attempts failed. Harrison of Highland, IL then pulled away to a comfortable lead but left eight other cars running in a pack for the second spot. In the final two laps, those eight cars swapped positions around more times than anyone could count. Leka would get a second place finish in the event and Scott Weber rallied back to a third place finish after running as far back as eighth with just five laps remaining. Marty Smith, Jr. made a spectacular save down the back-stretch on the final lap as he got turned into the outside wall causing his car to climb the wall. The fans in the grandstands could only see the roof of his car as it almost got upside down on the wall, but it seemed he never got out of the gas and brought the car back down off the wall and held off the field for a fourth place finish. Kinder would complete the top five.

Ron Sensel picked up his first career crate late model feature win with a sensational last lap pass on Nick Lyons. Sensel used the high side and drove the car in very deep into the turns on the final lap and just edged Lyons at the start/finish line for the victory. Lyons would finish second with Ray Emling, Jr. taking third. Darin Walker and Garrett Britton would compete the top five. Britton earned the STLRacing.com Hard Charger Award as he passed the most cars in the feature event with his fifth place finish after starting fifteenth.
