Korte, Weber, Nations & Fisher take wins at I-55 Raceway's Race Night for Special Champions!
Pevely, MO (July 14, 2007) Shop N Save and WIL 92.3 partnered with I-55 Raceway to put on a special event to raise money for the Special Olympics. A large field of cars and a huge fan turnout raised lots of money for the Special Olympics.
A field of thirty UMP DIRTcar Late Models were on hand for the $5,000 to win special. In the main event it was Randy Korte of Highland, IL that put on a dominating performance as he lap all but the first eight finishers in the thirty lap main event that went caution free. Korte crossed the finish line with a full half track lead over second place finish Jeff Johns. Tim Ratajczyk started on the pole for the main event after winning his qualifying heat and the dash and would lead the first three laps before Korte would sweep past him and pull away. Bryan Collins charged through the field as well as he moved from his eighth starting position to finish third behind Jeff Johns. Tim Manville also was impressive as he came from the tenth starting spot to finish fourth. Billy Faust completed the top five.
