Pevely, MO (August 14th, 2010) Mother Nature provided the heat and humidity while the racers provided the action! With the heat index over 110 degrees, making it miserable just to be outside, those that ventured out to watch the action at I-55 Raceway were treated to some fantastic racing.

Scott Weber of Festus, Missouri earned his first ever UMP DIRTcar Super Late Model victory! Bryan Collins jumped out to the lead at the drop of the green flag and led the first eight circuits before Weber made his move down the back stretch to move past Collins for the lead. Weber would then pace the field with Collins in his shadow up until the caution flew on lap twenty for Tim Manville slowing in turns three and four. During that caution, Collins would stop on the back stretch for an official to look over his machine. Apparently Collins had run over debris from Manville's car and put a hole in his radiator as well as some other damage and it would end his night. That would move Nick Lyons into the second spot on the restart. Lyons would try a different line on the restart to make a move on Weber for the lead, but it was the wrong decision and Lyons lost his momentum and allowed Weber to open up a lead of several car lengths. Weber would be too strong at the end for Lyons to catch and he would earn his first ever win in the UMP DIRTcar Super Late Models. Lyons would finish second. Danny Haynes charged from the tenth starting spot to finish third. Mark Miner would come home fourth after starting ninth and Ken Rumble came all the way from the sixteenth starting spot to round out the top five.

There were two UMP DIRTcar Modified features on the night's racing card. The racing action kicked off with a makeup main event for the UMP DIRTcar Modifieds that was rained out back on July 24th. It was Ricky Horton taking the lead at the drop of the green flag and Horton led the first fourteen laps before being overtaken by Rusty Griffaw. Griffaw would move past Horton on the low side as they exited turn two and went down the back stretch. Griffaw would go on to victory. Horton would settle for the second spot. Jim Black had his best feature finish of the season by running third. Brian Worley would claim the fourth spot with Paul Bauman rounding out the top five.

In the second main event for the UMP DIRTcar Modifieds, it was Rusty Griffaw backing up the first win with another one. Tim Hancock took the lead from the start, but Griffaw charged from the fourth starting spot to move past Hancock on lap two. Bobby Bittle would also get past Hancock and take over the second spot. That would setup a battle with Griffaw leading using the very bottom line around the track and Bittle using the middle of the track. Meanwhile Mike Harrison was on the move from his ninth place starting spot and working his way toward the front. Dean Hoffman was also on the move after winning the semi-feature and starting nineteenth. Back at the front, Griffaw continued to pace the field with Bittle not far behind, but Griffaw was just too strong and held on to get the win. Bittle would finish second with Harrison third. Hoffman would get the fourth spot with Hancock rounding out the top five.

UMP DIRTcar Sportsman Division National Point Leader and I-55 Raceway Sportsman Point Leader Jeff Herzog powered his way to another victory. Herzog took the lead from pole sitter Trey Harris at the drop of the green flag and the two battled all fifteen laps to the checkered flag. Herzog would edge Harris for the win. Troy Naeger who battled most of the race with Steve Edgecombe for third, finally got the pass completed and finish third. Edgecombe took fourth while Danny Ems rounded out the top five.

Jeff Turner claimed the UMP DIRTcar/AARA Pro 4 Stock main event. Turner battled early on with Earl Pryor for the lead and then held off Justin McCallister at the end. McCallister was second and Pryor finished third. Ben Cochran would finish in the fourth spot with Justin Hall completing the top five.
