'Diamond Nationals' on Saturday night, July 14 at the pristine

the second quickest lap in Group A during qualifying prior to
running second in his stacked heat race. After rolling off from

Finds Bad Luck at Lake Ozark...
8, 2018) Current Lucas Oil MLRA Series point leader Chad
Simpson found nothing but bad luck on July 6-7 at Lake Ozark Speedway
in Eldon, Missouri, as he was caught up in late race incidents
while battling towards the front in both weekend point races.
On Friday night in the $3,000 to win weekend opener, Chad won
his heat race and led a couple of different times in the wild
30-lap feature event before a late race wreck relegated him to
a disappointing fifteenth place showing. At Lake Ozark in the
$5,000 to win finale on Saturday evening, Chad placed third in
his heat race and was running third late in the 41-lap feature
distance before an incident heading to the white flag dropped
him to fourteenth in the final finishing order. Full results from
both weekend programs can be viewed online at www.mlraracing.com.

scoring a win in his heat race from the sixth starting spot, Chad
took the victory in the 30-lap Lucas Oil MLRA Series feature event
to secure the $3,000 payday ahead of Payton Looney, Cade Dillard,
Jason Hughes, and Logan Martin. In Saturday night's $5,000 to
win weekend finale, Chad ran third in heat race action before
driving past four competitors during the 40-lapper on his way
to a solid seventh place effort. Chad still finds himself on top
of the MLRA point standings exiting the 'Freedom Classic' doubleheader.
