Korte, Bauman, Medley & Fisher take wins at I-55 Raceway!
Pevely, MO (August 25, 2007) Thirty-four Mid-America Racing Series (MARS) and United Midwestern Promoters (UMP) DIRTcar Super Late Models rolled through the gates at I-55 Raceway for the MARS/UMP Clash which awarded $5,000 to the winner. It was Highland, Illinois' Randy Korte earning the top spot as he held of the challenges of Will Vaught and led all forty laps of the main event. Vaught was looking for a repeat of a race last month at I-55 Raceway when he swept past Korte in the final lap to take the win. However, Korte proved too strong this time around as he worked lapped traffic flawlessly and separated himself from Vaught as they battled through the traffic. Vaught would have his hands full in the closing laps as the lapped traffic allowed Billy Faust, Brian Shirley, Bill Frye, Bryan Collins and Shannon Babb to close in make it a great battle throughout the top ten. At the finish line, Vaught would just hold off Billy Faust for the second spot with Shirley all over Faust for the third spot. Bill Frye would complete the top five.
