Pevely, MO (August 15th, 2009) A large field of 114 racecars filled the pit area in the four divisions for the 2nd Annual Jim Woodrum Memorial presented by Michael Woodrum RE/MAX Realty. Randy Korte of Highland, Illinois was in a class of his own in the UMP DIRTcar Super Late Model division. The twenty-five lap main event went the entire distance caution-free and Korte finished the event with well over a half-track lead over second place and had all except the second through fifth place finishers at least one lap down. Korte exited turn four to take the checkered flag as the second through fifth place competitors were entering turn one after taking the white flag. However, the battle for second place was outstanding as Dylan Sharp had his best outing ever in his young career. Sharp and Jeff Beyers had an insane battle for the second spot as they swapped the position on many occassions throughout the event. That battle was essentially a four car battle as Tim Ratajczyk and Ed Dixon got into the mix during the latter half of the race and the four had a great race between themselves as they manuevered through lapped traffic. Sharp would get the second spot with Beyers third, Ratajczyk fourth and Dixon fifth.
