Pevely, MO (July 25, 2009) For the second time this season, Randy Korte of Highland, Illinois has won both the UMP Late Model and UMP Modified main events on the same night at I-55 Raceway. This time however, he completely swept both divisions by winning his heat race, dash and main event in both classes and led every single lap of both main events. In the UMP Late Model main event, Mark Voigt made a great race of it, but Korte used lapped traffic in the closing laps to distance himself from Voigt enroute to the victory. Voigt would finish second. Ed Dixon had one of his best runs of the 2009 season at I-55 Raceway as he ran a close third to the leaders while holding off the hard charging Tim Manville who finish fourth. Jeff Johns completed the top five. This was Korte's seventh UMP Late Model feature win in ten visits during the 2009 racing season at I-55 Raceway!
