Pevely, MO (July 25, 2009) For the second time this season, Randy Korte of Highland, Illinois has won both the UMP Late Model and UMP Modified main events on the same night at I-55 Raceway. This time however, he completely swept both divisions by winning his heat race, dash and main event in both classes and led every single lap of both main events. In the UMP Late Model main event, Mark Voigt made a great race of it, but Korte used lapped traffic in the closing laps to distance himself from Voigt enroute to the victory. Voigt would finish second. Ed Dixon had one of his best runs of the 2009 season at I-55 Raceway as he ran a close third to the leaders while holding off the hard charging Tim Manville who finish fourth. Jeff Johns completed the top five. This was Korte's seventh UMP Late Model feature win in ten visits during the 2009 racing season at I-55 Raceway!
As Korte dominated for his second UMP Modified feature win of 2009 at I-55 Raceway, three cars put on a classic battle for the second spot throughout the entire twenty lap event. Ray Walsh, Eric Mabery and Bobby Bittle had a fierce battle raging between them as they swapped the second position around lap after lap and ran side-by-side throughout the event. Bittle finally laid claim to the second spot in the closing laps and held on for second. Eric Mabery took the third spot with Walsh finishing fourth. Mark Miner rounded out the top five. A great display of sportsmanship from different raceteams when Tim Hancock suffered a broken right front tie-rod in the early laps as crewmembers from several teams made repairs and got him back on the track during a caution period. Hancock would storm back to an eighth place finish.

Troy Naeger claimed his fifth UMP Sportsman feature event win of 2009 at I-55 Raceway. It was also Naeger's fourth win in a row. Naeger started on the outside of the front row and led the first two laps before pole sitter Scott Henseler used the high side to move past Naeger. Henseler would lead the next four laps before Jason Keller moved into the lead. Keller's lead would be short-lived as he spun going into turn one and collected five other cars in the melee. That would turn the lead back over to Naeger who would pace the field for the remaining laps enroute to the victory. Alan Gieseking would take the second spot with Trey Harris finishing third. Ronnie Bader took the fourth spot with Jimmy Cummins completing the top five. Henseler would slide back to a sixth place finish.
