TIPTON, Ia. - Aug. 25. Jeff Aikey started fourth on the grid, passed polesitter Denny Eckrich on lap four, built up a good size lead, and was never seriously challenged en route to his second Dart Corn Belt Clash win of the season here at the Cedar County Raceway on Wednesday. Aikey moved through traffic like a fine wine throughout the event, keeping the rest of the competitors at bay.

One driver making his way through the field was seventh starter Justin Kay. Kay moved to fifth by lap 11, third by lap 17, and into second by lap 23, where he stayed the rest of the race and finished strong in the runnerup spot to
Aikey. Denny Eckrich placed third, with Jason Rauen fourth.

Series win and points leader Chad Simpson was relegated to starting in the 24th spot after having mechanical issues that forced him to forego his heat race. Simpson came from last to fifth, passing Kurt Kile on the last lap for that position.
