Ryan Unzicker, Michael Long, Randy Korte, Dave Armstrong & Vincent Shehorn take wins at Tri-City Speedway
Pontoon Beach, IL - May 25th, 2012 - A great field of UMP DIRTcar Late Models were on hand and they provided one of the most exciting nights of racing that you can ask for. Randy Korte jumped out front from his front row outside starting spot a opened up a small lead over Dewayne Kiefer in the early going while Ryan Unzicker, Mark Burgtorf and Jason Feger were trading slide jobs for the third spot. They would soon reel Kiefer in and make it a crazy battle for the second spot with the four of them trading positions in each corner. Just past the half way point, Korte ran into lapped traffic and this allowed the foursome behind him to close right in on him for the lead. Feger would soon take over the second spot and was right on the rear bumper of Korte as they circled the high side. A slip in lap traffic by Feger would allow Unzicker to move into the second spot. On lap 22, Unzicker dove to the bottom through turns three and four and pulled along side Korte for the lead. As they exited turn four, Korte's car would lose power causing him to slow as he came down the front stretch. Feger would be unable to avoid Korte and ran into the back of him, causing front end damage to Feger's car and sidelining him along with Korte. That would setup a restart with two laps to go with Unzicker out front with Burgtorf and Kiefer in second and third. Unzicker would hold on for the win with Burgtorf holding off Kiefer for second. Kevin Cole would cross the line after Kiefer for fourth while Steve Lance, Jr. rounded out the top five.
