Pevely, MO (August 28th, 2010) Billy Moyer has visited I-55 Raceway three times during the 2010 racing season and has won all three times he has been there. With forty cars on hand for the MARS/UMP DIRTcar Challenge and Moyer drawing a high pill number and having to start near the back of his qualifying heat race, it wasn't an easy task to claim his third win at I-55 Raceway this season. Moyer would start the main event in the outside of row three with Dennis Erb, Jr. and Jeremy Payne on the front row. Payne would get the lead at the drop of the green flag from his front row outside starting spot. Erb would move into the second spot and constantly badger Payne for the lead in the early laps. Shannon Babb would get into the third spot and make it a three-way race for the lead. As the laps began to click off, Moyer was on the move toward the front. It didn't take long for the leaders to get into lapped traffic and that would cause the battle for the lead to intensify. Moyer would drive around Babb for the third spot on lap ten, then he would move past Erb for the second spot just two laps later. Just before the half way marker, Moyer flew past race leader Payne. Moyer would proceed to pull away from the field and checked out to win by nearly a half-track margin. It took Moyer less than twelve minutes to finish the entire forty lap feature event that went caution free. Another amazing note, all twenty-four cars that started the main event, took the checkered flag. Shannon Babb would work his way past Erb and Payne to finish in the second position. Payne would hold on for a third place finish with Erb taking fourth. Brian Shirley would round out the top five.

Matt Mevert from Steeleville, Illinois would claim his second UMP DIRTcar Modified feature event of 2010 at I-55 Raceway. Mevert started on the pole and held off an early challenge from Rusty Griffaw to earn the win. A great battled ensued for most of the twenty lap feature event between Tim Hancock, Bobby Bittle and Jim Black for the third spot. Those three drivers swapped the positions back and fourth throughout the main event. Bittle would get the third spot late in the race and then almost ran down second place finisher Griffaw but came up short at the line and settled for third. Hancock would take fourth with Black finishing fifth.

Jeff Herzog led all fifteen laps of the UMP DIRTcar/AARA Sportsman main event en-route to the victory. Troy Naeger stayed on the rear bumper of Herzog for the entire distance, but could never mount a challenge to get along side Herzog for the lead and settled for the second spot. Brad Paquet would move past Trey Harris late in the race and take the third spot with Harris finishing fourth. Steve Edgecombe completed the top five.

The UMP DIRTcar/AARA Pro 4 Stocks had yet another amazing battle for the lead that would see six cars battling for the top spot for most of the event. Jeff Turner led the early laps with Rob Shaw, Justin McCallister, Aron Faulkner, Philip Stuart and Gerald Buechting all battling for the lead. As the cars rubbed fenders and traded paint, Rob Shaw would move into the lead in the closing laps and hang on for the win. Justin McCallister would get the second position with Jeff Turner taking third. Aron Faulkner would get fourth while Philip Stuart rounded out the top five.
