Title with Wheatland Runner-Up!!!

secured the 2014 Lucas Oil MLRA Series Championship over the October
10-11 weekend at the state-of-the-art Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland,
Missouri. The two-day 'Fall Nationals' weekend at Wheatland was
scheduled to start with a $3,000 to win program on Friday night,
but Mother Nature had other plans and washed out the opener.
On Saturday evening, the MLRA finale went off without a hitch
and a $5,000 top prize was on the line. Chad won his heat race
in preliminary action and later started the 50-lap headliner from
the inside of the fourth row. The Mount Vernon, Iowa star then
climbed all the way up to second in the 'Fall Nationals' to record
an impressive runner-up effort behind only race winner Ryan Gustin.
"The car was good - we just needed a little more right rear,"
said Simpson following his own 2014 season finale. "These
championships, they're just amazing. We really wanted to get a
win in the series this year. We're consistent, we've got good
equipment, we've got good cars. We made so many changes this year,
for us to still run as consistent as we did, just tells a lot
about our whole team." Full results from Wheatland can be
