Pontoon Beach, IL (June 24, 2011) Dan Schlieper of Sullivan, Wisconsin claimed his third career UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals victory at Tri-City Speedway and claimed the $10,000 payday.

The race got off to an odd beginning when one of the favorites to win, Brian Birkhofer, lost his left front tire as the cars rolled out onto the racetrack to lineup for the main event. Birkhofer would have to go to the pit area and replace the tire, which ruined his chances for victory as he lost his second row starting spot and was forced to start from the rear of the field. On the initial start, trouble would find two more top contenders as Billy Moyer and Chad Simpson would get together in turn three on the first lap. That would end Simpson’s night, but Moyer would be able to restart. It was Pinconning, Michigan’s Jeep Van Wormer grabbing the lead at the drop of the green flag. Van Wormer would open up a decisive lead in the early laps and lead the first twenty-two laps of the forty lap main event. A caution on lap sixteen for Brian Shirley, Jason Feger and Brian Birkhofer would take away Van Wormer’s big lead. Schlieper went to work on Van Wormer immediately after the restart, with the two racing side-by-side for several laps before Schlieper would finally take control on lap twenty-three. Meanwhile, Billy Moyer started moving in on the lead duo. Moyer would soon dispose of Van Wormer to take the second spot and began trying to reel in Schlieper. Moyer would finally catch Schlieper with five laps to go. Moyer tried every line to get past Schlieper for the lead but would not be successful and would have to settle for a second place finish. Shannon Babb had his car dialed in for the feature event as he charged from the sixteenth starting spot and moved past Van Wormer late in the race to claim the third spot. Van Wormer would hold off Matt Miller to finish fourth with Miller taking fifth.
