Simpson Four Straight With Cresco Clash Checkers

CRESCO, Ia. - June 3. Chad Simpson is making it look easy these days. This time, the Mount Vernon, Ia. driver started in the sixth spot, caught leader Jake Meyer on lap 25, and finished Thursday's Cornbelt Clash 35-lap feature in dominating fashion with four straight wins to his credit.

Meyer sat on the pole and lead the early going through a handful of early cautions, with Jason Rauen in pursuit for the most of the distance.  Meanwhile, Simpson went to work on the field while brother Chris Simpson did the same, moving forward from his 17th starting position.

Jason Rauen held down second for the most of the race before spinning late in the race.

Chad Simpson had made his way into fourth place when Rauen looped his mount with 12 laps remaining. From his new third starting slot on the restart, Simpson slipped IMCA star Jeff Aikey and went after the leader, getting buy for the lead two laps later. Aikey also worked his way by Meier, but would have to settle for second, with Meier holding off the rapidly advancing Chrris Simpson for third. Lance Matthees, one of several upper midwest drivers stepping onto the tour for a special Thursday night makeup race, rolled to fifth.
