Pontoon Beach, IL (May 13th, 2011) Tri-City Speedway was able to dodge all the wet weather and kicked off their 2011 racing season with some great racing action.

Dewayne Kiefer of St. Genevieve, MO claimed the UMP DIRTcar Late Model season opening feature event. Kiefer was able sweep the nights racing action as he also won the heat and dash events. Kiefer took the lead at the drop of the green flag in the main event and it appeared that he was going to run away with the win, but Billy Laycock worked his way to the second spot and then ran down Kiefer in the closing laps to challenge Kiefer for the top spot. Laycock tried all kinds of moves to get the lead from Kiefer, but Kiefer held him off to take the win. Rick Salter would cross the line in third with Craig Smith taking fourth. Chad Zobrist rounded out the top five.

Vance Wilson of Frankford, MO put on a dominating performance enroute to winning the UMP DIRTcar Modified main event. Wilson started in the seventh position in main event quickly charged toward the front. On lap seven, Wilson drove past early leader Scott Weber and pulled away to a big lead. The only thing that could slow Wilson down were a couple of late cautions. However, Wilson would take command on each of the restarts and would go to victory. Weber would take the second spot with Mike Harrison finishing third. Tim Hancock took the fourth spot and Bobby Regot III rounded out the top five.

Jordan Bauer claimed his first event UMP DIRTcar Pro Late Model feature event. Bauer took the lead at the drop of the green flag and held off the challenges of Matt Santel to pick up the win. Jason Zobrist finished third with Bobby Martintoni taking fourth. Ed Lenhardt would come home in fifth.

Gaither, piloting the only pickup truck in the Street Stock division, used the outside lane to power past early leader Todd Erickson to get the win. Erickson would finish in the second spot with Stephen Fohne taking third. Buddy Love would cross the line in fourth with Fred Sparks taking fifth.

Jacob Rexing continued his hot streak of winning UMP DIRTcar Sport Compact feature events.
