Pevely, MO (July 26, 2008) A stellar field of 121 racecars filled the pit area and a grandstands packed full of people enjoyed a spectacular night of racing.

Thirty-two UMP DIRTcar Late Models signed in to compete and they provided the fans with one of the most exciting finishes in recent memory at I-55 Raceway. In the feature event, Michael Kloos jumped out to the early lead from the front row pole starting position. Kloos led the first eleven laps before Mark Voigt slipped by to take over the top spot. Voigt would soon feel the heat from Tim Manville and Billy Faust as the three battled it out at the front of the field. A late caution would fly with just two laps remaining with Voigt still out front while Manville was second and Faust third. On the restart, Manville dove under Voigt going into turn one, but couldn't make the pass. Faust used his momentum on the high side to slip past Manville down the backstretch. Voigt led as they took the white flag and he would go into turn one on the low side while Faust went around the top. Voigt would lead as they exited turn two and headed down the backstretch, but Faust had the momentum from the top side and dove under Voigt going into turn three. Faust would complete the pass and beat Voigt by a car length to the checkered flag. Manville would finish a very close third. Kloos would come home with a fourth place finish. Ed Dixon made a great run through the field as he started eleventh and finished in the fifth spot.

Tim Hancock

Once again, the UMP DIRTcar Modified division had another outstanding feature event with Tim Hancock taking the win by half car length over last week's winner Mike Harrison. Hancock started on the pole and led all twenty laps of the main event, however, it took everything he could muster to hold off Harrison in the closing laps. Harrison pulled along side Hancock in almost every turn in the final five laps but couldn't keep enough momentum to complete the pass. Ray Walsh continued his march to the track championship at I-55 Raceway in the modified division as he finished third. Fourth place went to Ricky Horton while Jerry Grither completed the top five. In post race tech, officials inspected the "pull bar" on the rear-end of Harrison's car. They wanted to ensure no holes had been drilled in the "biscuits" in the pull bar in which small springs could be mounted. This type of setup has been found at other tracks and is not legal per the UMP rules. Harrison's car was found completely LEGAL.


Troy Medley

Troy Medley claimed his third straight UMP DIRTcar Sportsman feature event at I-55 Raceway. Medley chased down race leader Troy Naeger and finally caught him with three laps remaining. The two raced side by side for the final three laps with Medley earning the win at the line. Jeff Herzog, who started all the way back in the sixteenth starting spot, came home a close third behind Naeger. Kyle Stolzer took the fourth spot with Jimmy Cummins completing the top five.


Homer Mooney

Homer Mooney claimed the UMP/AARA Pro 4 Stock main event. Mooney led all ten laps of the main event. Aaron Wood would finish in the second position with Jason Crump taking third. Fourth would go to Pat Brewer while Jacob Buechting completed the top five.
