Pontoon Beach, IL (June 24, 2011) Creg Cannon claimed his first ever feature win in the UMP DIRTcar Factory Stock (Street Stock) division at Tri-City Speedway! Cannon had his hands full for the entire feature event as track point leader Tommy Gaither pressured him for the lead for the last ten laps of the main event. Cannon would also benefit from a lucky breaks, when Gaither got past Cannon for the lead at the half way point, only to have the caution fly, giving the lead back to Cannon on the restart. Cannon would drive the race of his life in the closing laps as Gaither tried intensely to get past Cannon for the top spot. Gaither would get a run on Cannon again coming out of turn four as they head to the checkered flag, but would come up just a few feet short as Cannon reached the finish line first. T.J. Eilers would finish in the third spot with Richie Gabriel finish fourth and Ricky Huebner fifth.


 

Dustin Griffin paced all twenty laps of the UMP Pro Late Model feature as he claimed his third win of 2011 at Tri-City Speedway. Nick Lyons, piloting the Pirates of the Caribbean 8BALL car would get clipped from behind by Jerry Lierly on lap two while running second, sending him spinning and ending his hopes of challenging for the win. Daniel Heck would settle into the second spot and give chase to Griffin for the lead but would settle for a second place finish. Mark Oller made a charge through the field and moved up to finish in the third spot. Jerry Lierly would cross the line in fourth with Bobby Martintoni rounding out the top five.
