Mark Voigt, Tim Hancock, Jeff Herzog & Dayton Racer take wins at I-55 Raceway
Pevely, MO (June 11th, 2011) Tim Manville left I-55 Raceway highly disappointed after basically giving away a victory in the UMP DIRTcar Late Model feature event. Manville would battle lap after lap with Rickey Frankel for the first sixteen laps of the feature, the two swapping the lead back and fourth the entire time. Then Manville took control and pulled away to a comfortable lead and appeared to be on his way to relatively easy victory. Then disaster struck. As Manville raced through turn four coming for the white flag, he would spin all on his own. Manville would have to go to the tail of the field on the restart. That would give Rickey Frankel the lead on the restart, with Mark Voigt restarting in the second spot. Voigt, who had struggled early on in the feature, slipping back as far as fourth after starting on the outside of the front row, knew his tires and setup were perfect for the two lap shootout to the finish. On the restart, Voigt wasted little time as he shot past Frankel for the lead through turns one and two and proceeded to pull away and take a easy win. Frankel would get the second spot. Tim Ratajczyk had a great run as well and finished in the third position. Jeff Johns would claim fourth with Dewayne Kiefer coming home fifth.
