FARLEY, Iowa. - June 4. Hotter than a firecracker on the fourth of July these days, Chad Simpson passed early leader Jason Rauen on lap 11, managed to stave off a couple of late race cautions, and went on to capture his fifth Corn Belt Clash Late Model feature event here at the Farley Speedway Friday night.

chopping that lead away lap after lap. Finally by lap 11, Simpson motored around for the lead, but Rauen managed to move back ahead, only to have a caution come out and thwart that progress.
 
That moved Simpson back to the point, and once the race was restarted on lap 14, Simpson motored ahead while Rauen, who was running second fell back to fifth. Simpson was able to keep his competition at bay the rest of the way,
winning his fifth late model win of the season for the 2009 reigning Corn Belt Clash Champion.
  Brother Chris Simpson placed second, while Joe Callahan, who has been on a tear of late, had another fine outing, running third ahead of Andy Eckrich. Brother Denny Eckrich, who came from 14th starting spot, finished fifth.
  Rauen, Chad Simpson, and Andy Eckrich were the three heat race winners, while Ron Kelin won the eight lap B-main.
