Championship Picture Becoming Clearer with Two Divisions Still Up For Grabs (click here)

Kicking things off was the 20-lap, $600 to win Express Powersports UMP Factory Stocks where the feature winner was Trevor Bitterling of Star City, IN.

Completing the top five were David Hurst, Hayden Lomax, Ryan Coley and Nathan Arterberry.

The win was Bitterling's sixth of his career.

In the 15 lap, 3 Sons Auto Salvage UMP Stock Cars feature Jerrad Krick of Earl Park, IN came out victorious for the second week on a row after he traded places with early frontrunner Braiden Keller after Keller bobbled in turns three and four near the midway mark.

Rounding out the top five were Keller, Jeff Hartzell, Jesse Simmons and Don Hilleary.

It was career win #18 for the now two-time defending track champion.

In the much anticipated 20-lap, Romar Transportation UMP Pro Late Model feature, the victor was Matt Hammond of Bourbonnais, IL.

Giving chase were Austin McCarty, Joe Rokos, Ben Kirchner and Gary Schalmo.

It was Hammond's ninth career trip to Kankakee's victory lane. With a 63 point advantage over McCarty heading into the season finale it's pretty much sealed in stone that Hammond will win his second consecutive track championship, while Kirchner and Amber Crouch will decide the battle for third with Kirchner four points in front of Crouch.

The 20-lap CR Towing UMP Modified feature winner was Mike McKinney of Plainfield, IL who outlasted Trevor Neville of Mackinaw, IL by .442 seconds.

Zeke McKenzie Travis Kohler and Jamie Lomax rounded out the top five.

This was career win #35 for McKinney at Kankakee while Lomax had already secured the track title two weeks ago.

The 15-lap First Place Oils UMP Sport Compact feature winner was Jimmy Dutlinger of Peoria, IL and tonight's Stock 4 Cyl winner Matt Radtke of Clifton, IL.

Top five finishers included Joshua Wright, Danny White Jr., Dale Kohler and Mike Cunz.

The "Traveling Man" Dutlinger was able to jump over David Lauritson (DNF) to grab the point lead by 34 points heading into the September 22nd season championship night, however Evan Eckhoff and Joshua Wright still have unfinished business to decide who takes third as they are separated by just seven points.

The night's 15-lap Crown Victoria division feature winner was again Adam Thibo of Peotone, IL.

Chasing Thibo all race to the stripe were Porter Waskosky, Joe Hillman, Brian Craig and last minute fill in Ben Kirchner. It marked Thibo's fifth visit to victory lane this year.

The 15-lap Miller Hydraulic UMP Pro Modified feature winner was Brandon Bollinger of Kewanee, IL.

Giving chase were Deece Schwartz, Donnie Martin, Ryan Kohler and Pete Argianas.

It was Bollinger's first career win at Kankakee.
