Pevely, MO (May 16, 2009) Tim Manville had never won a UMP DIRTcar Super Late Model feature event before the start of the 2009 racing season, now he has two feature wins in the first five events at I-55 Raceway! Manville, from Highland, Illinois, took the lead at the drop of the green flag from his front row outside starting position and opened up a lead of several car lengths over second place Randy Korte who battled past Ed Dixon for the second spot. However, Korte would quickly reel in Manville as they reached lapped traffic. As the lapped traffic got heavier, Korte was able to move up to the middle of the track and move past Manville as he was slowed by a lapped car. Korte would then pull away to a lead of several car lengths through traffic but Manville as the lapped traffic varied, Manville was able to catch Korte again. Then, as the race began to wind down, Manville would make the exact same move that Korte made on him earlier in the event as he went to the middle of the track to move past Korte as he was held up by lapped traffic. A late caution would set the field for a one lap shootout with Manville out front and Korte in second. Manville would pull away on the restart and go on to victory with Korte finishing second. Dixon would take home a solid third place finish with Tim Ratajczyk taking fourth. Jeff Johns completed the top five.
