Pontoon Beach, IL (April 24, 2009) The 2008 Tri-City Speedway Super Late Model Track Champion Billy Faust of Highland, Illinois grabbed his first Super Late Model victory of 2009 (Faust did win the UMP Pro Crate Late Model feature event last week at Tri-City Speedway). Craig Smith jumped out to the early lead in the main event and used the high side to hold off the challenges of Faust and Chad Zobrist. While leading, Smith would occasionally clip the outside wall through turns three and four allowing Faust to get a great run on him. Faust could not make any of those attempts work to take the lead until lap sixteen when Smith clipped the outside wall exiting turn four with his right rear quarter panel which got his car out of shape coming down the front stretch allowing Faust to make the pass for the lead on the outside. Zobrist would soon dispose of Smith as well and tried to run Faust down, but his effort came up short as Faust took the victory. Zobrist would take second with Smith following in third. Mark Voigt would finish a close fourth and Billy Laycock completed the top five. Kevin Cole claimed the STLRacing.com Hard Charger Award as he finished seventh after starting back in the sixteenth position.
