Pontoon Beach, IL (July 3, 2009) A Tri-City Speedway record 165 racecars filled the pit area to compete in the five divisions. A heavy overcast sky and an occassional drizzle forced track officials to keep things moving rapidly and they were successful and getting the entire event completed. Twenty-two cars were on hand for the UMP DIRTcar Super Late Model division and it was Tim Manville of Highland, Illinois picking up his first ever win at Tri-City Speedway. Manville took the lead at the drop of the green flag and held off Mark Voigt through the early stages. Then Chad Zobrist took over the second spot during the middle stages and tried to challenge Manville for the lead. A late caution would setup a final showdown but again Manville had the right setup and pulled away to victory. Voigt would get the second spot back in the final laps bringing Tim Ratajczyk along with him who finished third. Zobrist would settle for the fourth spot with Rickey Frankel rounding out the top five.

UMP DIRTcar Modifieds came from all over as fifty-four cars filled the pit area to compete including Bobby Malchus all the way from Red Oak, Texas. The modifieds did not disappoint as Dean Hoffman and Michael Long had a great battle for the lead all throughout the twenty lap main event. Long took the early lead before he slipped entering turn one on lap eight, allowing Hoffman to move under him to take the lead. Hoffman would lead the next eight laps with Long right on his bumper. On lap sixteen, Hoffman would miss his line exiting turn two allowing Long to move under to take the lead. However, Long would slip exiting turn four on the same lap, allowing Hoffman to retake the lead. Hoffman would hold off Long for the remaining three laps and earn the victory. Long would finish a close second with Vance Wilson taking the third spot. Michael Bolyard would finish in fourth with Timmy Hill completing the top five.

The UMP DIRTcar Pro Late Models provided another exiting event as Daniel Heck led all twenty laps of the main event but had his hands full the entire time with various drivers including Brandon Imhoff, Gordy Gundaker and Jason Zobrist. Imhoff pressured Heck in the first few laps, then surrendered the second spot to Gundaker who pressure Heck for most of the race. Gundaker was able to pull along side Heck on several occassions, but Heck had just enough to hold him off. Then in the final couple of laps, Zobrist moved past Gundaker to take the second spot, but he too would not be able to find a way past Heck who took the win. Zobrist took second with Gundaker finishing third. Jeremy Hines would finish in the fourth spot with Imhoff rounding out the top five.

Danny Ems dominated the Street Stock main event. Ems led all fifteen laps and pulled away to a comfortable lead as he claimed the victory. Ed Lenhardt would take the second position with Andy Beavers third, Tommy Gegg fourth and Terry McCann fifth.

Chris Fisher took the Factory Stock main event. Fisher got the lead from Joshua James on lap five and pulled away to take the victory. Bob Zbinden battled with James for the second spot for the entire rest of the distance but couldn't find his way past. James would hang on for second with Zbinden third. Rob Shaw took the fourth spot with Justin Shaw rounding out the top five.
