Ryan Unzicker emerges after his sixth straight victory.
What won the race: Ryan Unzicker of El Paso, Ill., slipped under Tim Manville on the 12th lap and captured the first of three rounds of Late Model action on the undercard of Tri-City Speedway's Mod Mania. Stretching a personal win streak to six in a row, Unzicker's $2,000 victory ended Bobby Pierce's streak of six straight Mod Mania victories; he'd swept all six races of the last two seasons.
Quotable: "This car has been awfully damn good ... we're short on help, but we've sure been busting it in getting the job done," said winner Ryan Unzicker, who took the checkers 2.751 seconds ahead of runner-up Tim Manville.
Key notes: Unzicker, who is chasing UMP DIRTcar weekly points leader Rusty Schlenk, won previously at Tri-City on Sept. 15 and has six straight victories overall. .. Schlenk finished ninth. ... Tim Manville led 10 of the first 11 laps. ... Shannon Babb slipped by Manville to lead the second lap. ... A dozen drivers complete 30 laps. ... Late Models gun for $2,500 Friday and $3,000 Saturday. ... Tri-City’s season wraps up Oct. 27 with the Road to the Dome, a $5,000-to-win UMP Late Model event.
Winner's sponsors: Unzicker's Bob Pierce Race Car has a Pro Power Racing Engine and carries sponsorship from Kingdon Farms, Leman Paint Works, Pro Tire and Automotive and RJR Transportation.
