Pontoon Beach, IL (August 17, 2007) Randy Korte of Highland, IL won his second Super Late Model main event of the season at Tri-City Speedway as he led all twenty-five laps of the main event enroute to victory. Korte, who had spent the morning at Ft. Knox, KY watching his son Dustin Korte graduate from US Army Basic Training, had to hold off a late surge from current point leader Bryan Collins. Collins second place finish gives him a slim eleven point lead over Mark Faust (who finished fourth) for the Tri-City Speedway Track Championship in the Super Late Model division. Six time 2007 Tri-City Speedway feature winner Billy Faust battled Collins for the second spot, but had to settle for a third place finish. Kyle Steffens late season surge continued as he got another top five finish as he took fifth behind Mark Faust.

NASCAR veteran Ken Schrader made a surprise visit to Tri-City Speedway and thrilled the fans with a last lap pass for the win in his heat race followed by a big win in the dash as well. However, Mike Harrison, who had six modified feature wins this season at Tri-City Speedway starting the night, held Schrader off in a classic duel to earn his seventh victory of the season. Harrison led all twenty laps of the main event, but Schrader continously pressured Harrison for the lead throughout the event. Tommie Seets, Jr. crossed the finish line in third with Marty Smith, Jr. fourth and Robbie Eilers completed the top five. Marty Smith, Jr. now holds a fifteen point lead over Bobby Martintoni for the Tri-City Speedway Track Championship in the Modified division.

Nick Lyons secured his sixth victory of the season at Tri-City Speedway in the CARS Late Model division. Lyons had opened a big lead early in the event, but Mark Oller closed the event out with a strong run at the end and just came up short at the finish line and had to settle for second. Ron Sensel took third with Rylan Dagg fourth and Garrett Britton fifth. Lyons increased his point lead over Dagg and now leads by 43 points. Sensel sits another ten points behind Dagg in third for the CARS track championship at Tri-City Speedway.

Andy Beavers won his first ever Street Stock main event in a photo finish over Richie Gabriel. The event featured eight cars battling in a pack for the lead with two and three wide battles over the entire fifteen lap distance. Ricky Huebner took the third position with Danny Ems fourth and Josh Jackson fifth. Josh Jackson now holds a twenty-two point lead over Ricky Huebner in the chase for the Street Stock Championship at Tri-City Speedway.

David Shaw cruised to his third Factory Stock feature win over Ryan Eilers. Rob Shaw took the third spot with Bobby Funderburk fourth and T.J. Eilers fifth. Ryan Eilers leads the Factory Stock point standings at Tri-City Speedway with a thirty-four point lead over David Shaw.
