Pontoon Beach, IL (August 15, 2008) Randy Korte of Highland, IL picked up his first Super Late Model victory of the 2008 racing season at Tri-City Speedway. Korte, making on his third start at Tri-City Speedway after sitting out much of the first half of the racing season with a back injury, had his hands full with Billy Faust throughout the event. Korte jumped to the lead as the green flag waved, but Faust would get the lead from Korte just a couple of laps later and he would lead the next fifteen laps. However, Korte stayed right with Faust and made his move as the two worked lapped traffic. Korte and Faust would continue to battle for the lead for the remaining few laps, however Korte would hang on and take the victory by a nose over Faust. Billy Laycock had a very impressive run as claimed the third position. Laycock was the only other car to keep the two leaders in sight as the race went the final fifteen laps without a caution. Tim Manville would finish in the fourth position and Chad Zobrist completed the top five. Bryan Collins earned the STLRacing.com Hard Charger $200 award as he passed the most cars with his ninth place finish after starting fourteenth.
In the Modified division, Scott Weber of Festus, MO also claimed his first victory of 2008 at Tri-City Speedway in a spectacular race in which the top seven cars were swapping positions lap after lap. Ray Walsh paced the field for the first ten laps, with Weber, Bobby Regot III and Marty Smith, Jr. all over him for the lead. In didn't take long for Bobby Martintoni to join the battle at the front after he starting in the tenth spot. Weber would get the lead from Walsh and soon Martintoni would take second from Walsh. Martintoni then reeled in Weber and the two battled side by side the final three laps with Weber winning by a half-car length at the line. Martintoni would finish second with Walsh taking third. Mike Harrison put on his own show, after starting dead last he used the high side and sending sparks off the concrete wall lap after lap, he would come all the way to a fourth place finish. Steve Meyer, Jr. stayed right in the mix for the top five throughout the feature event and would edge Regot out for the fifth spot after Smith spun in turn four as they came down for the checkered flag.

Bobby Dauderman of Alhambra, IL continued his dominant ways in the UMP Pro Late Model division. Dauderman picked up his eighth win out of only ten events that the UMP Pro Late Models have run in 2008. Dauderman led all twenty laps enroute to victory. Tyler Deibert was able to keep close to Dauderman, but was never able to mount a serious challenge for the lead and settled for a second place finish. The Heck brothers, Aaron and Daniel battled each other for almost the entire twenty laps for the third spot. The two raced side by side and swapped around the position lap after lap. Daniel would get the edge at the finish line to take third with Aaron finishing fourth. Gordy Gundaker finished off a great run with a fifth place finish.

Josh Jackson, the current UMP Street Stock point leader at Tri-City Speedway picked up his fourth win of 2008 at Tri-City Speedway as he held back Danny Ems for the win. Ems was all over the rear bumper of Jackson during the final seven laps, and even got underneath Jackson on a couple of occassions, but couldn't get the pass made and settled for second. Jason Zobrist would finish in the third spot with Richie Grabriel taking fourth and Tommy Gegg completed the top five.

Jason Schmidt of Highland, IL, who took over the point lead last week in the UMP 4 Cylinder division (Factory Stocks), extended his point lead this week as he picked up his second victory of 2008 at Tri-City Speedway. Ryan Eilers battled with Schmidt in the closing laps, but couldn't get the lead away from Schmidt and came home with a second place finish. Joshua James finished in the third position with Chris Williams finishing fourth and Mike Mandrell completed the top five.
