Pontoon Beach, IL (August 1, 2008) Mother Nature provided some very hot and steamy weather while the racers at Tri-City Speedway provided the fans with some hot racing action. Even with the very hot weather, track crews provided a very fast, tacky and most importantly a racy race surface. Dennis Erb, Jr. of Carpentersville, IL recovered from a multi-car incident on the opening lap of his heat race to earn a clean sweep in the Super Late Model division. Erb got the entire right from fender knocked off his car and then went sliding into a huge water/mud puddle on the infield that completely covered his car in mud on the first lap of his heat race, but came back to win his heat race along with the dash and feature event. Erb didn't go unchallenged in the feature as Billy Faust, who has four feature wins this season at Tri-City Speedway, kept the heat on Erb lap after lap. However, Erb proved too strong through the lapped traffic in the closing laps and went on to victory. Faust would settle for second with Tim Manville claiming the third position. A huge battle raged on for most of the race for fourth through about tenth place. In the end, it was Ken Schrader edging out Billy Laycock for the fourth spot.
The big $2,000 to win Illinois/Missouri UMP DIRTcar Modified Challenge was claimed by Mike Harrison of Highland, IL. Harrison got to the lead on the second lap and kept the rest of the field at bay as he marched on to victory. Tommie Seets, Jr. ran a strong second. The battle was on for the third spot as Marty Smith, Jr., Ray Walsh, Jerry Grither and Matt Mevert swapped positions three through six around many times in the final fifteen laps. Grither ended up coming out the best as he took home the third position. Walsh would get across the line in the fourth spot with Mevert taking fifth just ahead of Smith. Harrison's win was his second of 2008 at Tri-City Speedway, tying him for the lead for the most wins at Tri-City in 2008 with Bob Martintoni and Ray Walsh. Five other drivers each have one victory this season.

Bobby Dauderman continues to dominate in the UMP Pro Late Model division. Dauderman has now won six of the eight UMP Pro Late Model feature events at Tri-City Speedway in the 2008 racing season. Dauderman appeared to be on his way to a relatively easy win, however the markedly improved Matt Santel made a race out of it in the closing laps, but he would come up just short and settle for the second spot. Tyler Deibert had his strongest showing of the season as he finished in the third spot after running second most of the event. Casey Montague came home in the fourth spot with Craig Bessinger earning his first ever top five finish in a feature at Tri-City Speedway. Bessinger also won his first ever heat race earlier in the evening at Tri-City Speedway.

Danny Ems of Arnold, MO racked up his fourth win of the season at Tri-City Speedway in the UMP Street Stock division. Ems blew past early leader Jason Zobrist and pulled away to a dominating victory. Zobrist would finish in the second spot with Tri-City Speedway Street Stock point leader Josh Jackson taking third. Terry McCann took the fourth position and David Walker completed the top five.

It was a Shaw family one, two, three finish in the UMP 4 Cylinder/Factory Stock division after early leader Bob Zbinden lost a right rear tire while leading with only three laps remaining in the feature event. David Shaw, Justin Shaw and Rob Shaw swapped paint and rubbed fenders as they battled it out over the final three laps. David Shaw would just edge out Justin Shaw for the win with Rob Shaw finishing a very close third. Jason Schmidt finished in the fourth spot with Chris Williams completing the top five.
