Pontoon Beach, IL (May 7th, 2010) A very cool and windy night greeted racers and fans, but after two consecutive rain outs, everyone was ready for action at Tri-City Speedway.

The action kicked off with two feature events that were rained out all the way back on opening night on April 2nd. The Modified feature was first to take the track and it was Quincy, Illinois’ Michael Long dominating the event. Long and Rick Conoyer battled side-by-side for the first four laps for the top spot, but Long would take command lead the final sixteen laps. With the event going the entire twenty laps without a caution, Long would put all but the top six finishers at least one lap down. Conoyer would finish second with Bobby Regot III taking the third spot. Steve Shive would finish fourth and Marty Smith, Jr. rounded out the top five.

The second event to hit the track was the makeup Street Stock feature and it was a classic battle. Buddy Love, Richie Gabriel, Tommy Gegg and Jimmy Bell provided a four way battle for the top spot that kept the fans at the edge of their seats. Love and Gabriel were side-by-side for most of the final eight laps with Bell and Gegg right on their rear bumpers also battling side-by-side. Love would take the victory with Gabriel second and Bell third. Tommy Gegg would finish fourth and Andy Beavers would round out the top five.

In the night’s regular scheduled feature action, Mark Voigt would claim the Super Late Model victory. Voigt would move past early leader Billy Faust to take over the top spot on lap five and would pull away to a convincing victory. Meanwhile, Faust would have his hands full battling for the second spot with Dewayne Keifer. The two would battle it out all the way to the checkered flag with Faust holding on for second. Keifer would take third. Rick Salter was right on their heels and would finish fourth with Craig Smith completing the top five.

The Modified event saw an epic battle for the win between Michael Long and Ray Walsh. The two fought it out for the entire twenty-laps. With the fast line around the very bottom, the two banged doors on several different occasions as each would take turns diving into the corner under the other. In the end, it was Walsh holding on and taking the top spot with Long finishing second. Meanwhile, Tim Hancock and Rick Conoyer also had a great battle going on for the third spot, the two provided the same type of action as the leaders were, banging wheels lap after lap as they fought over the low ground through the turns. Hancock would claim the third position with Conoyer taking fourth. Dean Vickers would charge from a seventeenth starting spot to finish fifth.

The Factory Stock main event saw plenty of wheel banging and rubbing as well. It was started off with a four car crash on the opening lap that would sideline outside front row starter Earl Pryor and third row starter Jacob Rexing. Trevor Isaak and Travis Horner got out front on the restart and got away from the madhouse racing that was taking place behind them. Jonathan Schulte, Jason Schmidt, Chad Burgess, Justin Suhre, Justin Hall and Willie Myers were on a mission as they all banged wheels and rubbed fenders for most of the ten laps as they battled hard for positions. Schulte would take the third spot with Schmidt getting by several cars on the final lap to get fourth. Burgess completed the top five.

The Street Stock feature didn’t get a single lap completed before a hard crash took place as the field exited turn four to complete the first lap. Max Morrison would get hit in the right rear quarter panel turning his car hard to the right and sending it head on into the wall just past the entrance onto the track from turn four. His car actually left the ground (Dukes of Hazard style) and hit the top of the wall, collapsing an entire section of the wall and tearing down a large section of fencing. This would force track officials to reschedule the Street Stock and UMP Pro Crate Late Model feature until next Friday night.
