Pevely, MO (August 10, 2013) Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 paid tribute to Laura Jones-Jumper with a great night of racing action.
The UMP DIRTcar Late Models would have a bizarre ending in which race winner Tim Manville didn't even know he had won the race. Bobby Pierce had opened up a full half track lead under a long green flag stretch and appeared to be on his way to a dominating victory. However, coming through turn four on the final lap with the checkered flag in sight, Pierce would have to get on the brakes hard to avoid a lapped car that cut across his nose. The hard braking would kill the motor in Pierce's car leaving him coasting down the front stretch towards the finish line. Manville would beat Pierce to the line to get the win. Manville was unaware that he had passed Pierce and after he crossed the scales was heading back to the pit area when track officials guided him to victory lane. Pierce would hold on for a close second with Rickey Frankel taking third. Brent Kreke would cross the line fourth with Jeff Herzog rounding out the top five.
