Pontoon Beach, IL (September 10, 2006) Tri-City Speedway hosted their Season Championship Night and four of the five divisions still had their points title on the line coming into the night's action. In the UMP Late Model division, Billy Laycock held a slim ten point lead over Bryan Collins as the night's racing got under way. After qualifying heat and the dash action, Collins had trimmed Laycock's lead down to only five points. Laycock and Collins lined up for the main event side by side on the front row. On the initial start, the two raced hard into turn one as they tried to beat each other to the turn. Laycock got into the first turn too hot and his car spun into the infield and brought out the caution. Tri-City Speedway's rules state that he had to restart on the rear for bringing out the caution. On the next restart, Jayme Zidar moved up to the front row, who was third in the point standings and only seventeen points out of first place, took the lead at the drop of the green flag. Collins faded all the way back to the sixth spot before he could get into the preferred groove. This allowed Steve Sheppard to move into the second spot as he gave chase to Zidar. Zidar would lead the first ten laps before Sheppard would slip by him on the low side. Sheppard would pull away in traffic to earn the victory. Zidar would come home in the second spot. Mark Voigt took the third spot and Bryan Collins moved back up to finish in the fourth position. Rusty Griffaw completed the top five. Laycock could only manage to get back to the eleventh spot and that gave Collins enough points to take over the lead and win the championship.
