Paul Bailey, Ray Walsh, Jacob Rexing, Terry McCann take feature wins while Dustin Griffin doubles up at Tri-City Speedway!
Pontoon Beach, IL (July 1, 2011) Paul Bailey claimed his first ever UMP DIRTcar Late Model victory at Tri-City Speedway! Michael Kloos took the lead at the drop of the green flag and used the low line around Tri-City Speedway as he tried to hold off Chad Zobrist and Paul Bailey for the top spot. Zobrist would make his move on lap eleven as the leaders exited turn two and headed down the backstretch. As Zobrist went to the high side exiting turn two, he and Kloos would make just slight contact, but enough that Zobrist would get into the back stretch wall, cutting down his right front tire. That would move Bailey up to the second spot on the restart and he would show plenty of patience while trying to make the pass for the lead. Bailey would get several runs on Kloos for the lead as they exited turn two and headed down the backstretch, but wouldn’t be able to get far enough along side Kloos to make the pass. Finally on twenty, Bailey would get a great run on the high side through turns one and two and shoot past Kloos for the lead. Bailey would then pull away over the final five laps to take the victory. Kloos would get second with Rusty Griffaw having a great run to take third. Mark Voigt would claim the fourth spot with Frankie Martin rounding out the top five.
