Chad Simpson Scores Second Win in a Row in Corn Belt Clash Action

Monday April 22, 2013


Chad Simpson in Victory Lane for the second night in a row in Cornbelt Clash Action.

Continuing his roll from the previous night, Chad Simpson went
back-to-back in Corn Belt Clash Series action. The three-time series
champion captured the $3,000 pay day at Quincy Raceways on Sunday night as
Simpson led all 40 laps on his way to his securing his second straight
series win for the weekend, and third straight win as he also won in MLRA
competition the previous weekend.

A field of 34 cars checked into the Quincy speed plant, with Simpson and
Brandon Sheppard making up the front row of the 40-lap A-Main. Simpson
jumped out to an early lead, with Babb and Sheppard in tow. A series of
early cautions slowed the event, with Simpson able to capitalize on the
restarts to keep his #25 MasterSbilt by Huey out front while Sheppard and
Babb battled back and forth for the runner-up position for most of the

The leaders entered lapped traffic just prior to the mid-point of the
race, with Babb and Sheppard able to close the gap on Simpson who at times
struggled with lapped traffic on the narrow surface. As the laps wound
down, Sheppard was able to secure the second position from Babb and begin
his push on the leader in the closing laps. Simpson was able to hold off
the charging Sheppard to secure the win and sweep the series events for
the weekend. Simpson and Sheppard were followed to the checkers by Shannon
Babb, Brian Shirley, Jason Perry and Tony Jackson Jr.

The Corn Belt Clash Series next race will be Saturday May 11th at Elko
Speedway in Elko, Minnesota as the paved facility once again covers it
surface with dirt and hosts the series. The following week the series will
head to Davenport Speedway in Davenport, Iowa on May 17 for the
rescheduled running of the Karsyn’s Krusaders 40 that was postponed
earlier in the month due to wet and cold conditions.
