Pevely, MO (May 9, 2009) After heavy rains pounded the area most of the day on Friday, Mother Nature brought beautiful weather on Saturday that provided some great racing action. In the U.M.P. DIRTcar Super Late Model division, Randy Korte of Highland, Illinois was on a mission after a tough outing two weeks ago at I-55 Raceway when his night ended with a twenty-second place finish. Korte started on the pole for the main event after winning the G&M Steel Dash earlier in the evening. Korte bolted to the lead at the drop of the green flag and led all twenty-five laps of the main event. Billy Laycock on Marine, Illinois made his first appearance of the 2009 racing season at I-55 Raceway and had a great night and was Korte's only serious threat during the main event. However, Laycock would settle for a solid second place finish. Tim Ratajczyk had his best outing of the 2009 season and claimed the third finishing spot. Jeff Johns would take the fourth spot with Brian Collins rounding out the top five.
