Cornbelt Clash: Kile Klaims First Series Win at Highway 3 
 
 
ALLISON, Ia. - Aug. 27. Grabbing the lead from his outside front row starting position, Kurt Kile took charge immediately, then held off challenges from
Jason Rauen, and later Chad Simpson, to bag the richest win of his 14-year Late Model career taking the $2,000 Dart  Corn Belt Clash series event here at the Highway 3 Raceway on Thursday.

Kevin Kile held off a stiff challenge from Jason Rauen early on at Highway 3 Raceway, and another late in the Cornbelt Clash main event to post the biggest win of his 14-year career on Thursday. (Mike Ruefer)
Kile motored to the lead with fourth starter Rauen stuck to him like glue for the first 24 laps. Time and time again, Rauen would close, but Kile's momentum kept the #77 machine in front. On lap 25, Chad Simpson replaced Rauen for second, and he tried his best to get Kile startled, but to no avail.
 
The win was Kile's first special event win of the season and second win overall for the year, having won at his home track West Liberty Raceway on opening night. A very happy race car driver climbed out of his winning machine and shared his thoughts.
 
"I've won some races but over my career this is the biggest paying win for me," Kile told his interviewer.  Simpson, who started seventh and finished second, locked up the points championship for 2010, his second straight title. Brother Chris Simpson, who started eighth placed third after pushing Rauen back to fourth. Third starting Jake Meier dropped to fifth.
