1tricity 042514-75Pontoon Beach, IL (April 25th, 2014) It was a big night for the Tri-City Speedway 4 Cylinder Factory Stock division as $1,000 was on the line to win. Thirty-seven Factory Stocks signed in to compete for the big money. Adam Gates from Cedar Rapids, IA would lead all twenty laps enroute to the win and the $1,000 payday. Jeremy Reed would work his way up from the sixteenth starting spot to finish a close second. Trey Harris would take the third spot.

Randy Korte grabbed the UMP DIRTcar Late Model feature win. Jim Shereck paced the field early on but Korte would wrestle the lead away from Shereck in lapped traffic on lap nine. Korte appeared to be on his way to dominating win, but a couple of cautions late in the event would restack the field. Rickey Frankel would give Korte a big challenge for the lead on the restart. Frankel would actually pull along side Korte and battle side by side for a lap before Korte moved back out front. Frankel would settle for a close second place finish with Billy Laycock taking third. Jim Shereck would take a fourth place finish with Paul Bailey rounding out the top five.

Michael Long jumped out to the early lead in the UMP DIRTcar Modified feature event. But Kenny Wallace would power under Long going into turn one of the second lap and get the lead. Wallace would lead the rest of the way enroute to the win. Ray Walsh moved in and battle Long for the second spot for many laps before finally taking control of the position. Walsh would finish second with Long taking third. Rick Stevenson would finish in the fourth spot and Josh Russell came home fifth.

Kolby Vandenbergh won his first ever UMP DIRTcar Pro Late Model main event. Vandenbergh powered past pole sitter Aaron Heck going into the first turn of the opening lap and never looked back. Vandenbergh would win by nearly a half track over second place finisher Tim Hancock. Josh Jackson would finish third with Charlie Heck fourth and his brother Daniel Heck fifth.

Dan Pilkington held off the challenges of Cody Thornhill to win the Street Stock feature. Fred Sparks would take third with Matt Hancock and Erik Sedlack completing the top five.
