Pontoon Beach, IL (June 1st, 2012) Randy Korte claimed victory at Tri-City Speedway after a bizarre ending. Dewayne Kiefer jumped out to the early lead at the drop of the green flag, only to have Korte take over the top spot on lap two. Korte would get out to sizeable lead while Kiefer ran a solid second. Meanwhile, Bobby Pierce was charging through the field and got all the way to third when the caution flew on lap seventeen. On the restart, Korte would continue to lead until Kiefer found a fast line around the high side. Kiefer would move past Korte with three laps to go and began to pull away. As Kiefer took the white flag, he appeared to be on his way to victory. But disaster would strike for Kiefer in turn two as he would suffer a blown tire and get into the back stretch wall. That would set up a one lap shootout between Korte and Pierce for the win. On the restart, Pierce would jump the cushion in turn two and allow Korte to pull away and pick up the win. Pierce would finish second with Dustin Griffin taking third. Rick Salter would cross the line fourth with Scott Schmitt rounding out the top five.
Condolences go out to the Meurer family during this time of sorrow.

PONTOON BEACH, Ill. (May 27) — Billy Moyer of Batesville, Ark., swept around Jimmy Mars on the backstretch on the 32nd lap Sunday at Tri-City Speedway en route to a $10,000 victory in the Budweiser 50.
Moyer stalked frontrunners Steve Francis and Mars through the first half of the race, but moved up to challenge the leading Mars by lap 30 and made his winning move on the icy-slick surface.
