4, 2017) Chad Simpson and his #25 team unloaded their
Black Diamond Chassis in a pair of $3,000 to win Lucas Oil MLRA
Series duals in the states of Iowa and Missouri on June 2-3. On
Friday night at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa, Chad
won his heat race in preliminary action prior to placing a strong
runner-up in the caution-free 40-lapper behind his brother Chris
Simpson. A similar story was told on Saturday evening at Randolph
County Raceway in Moberly, Missouri, as Chad once again won his
heat race and finished second in the 40-lap headliner behind only
victor Terry Phillips. Full results from both weekend races can

Enters Show-Me 100 Weekend at Wheatland
29, 2017) Chad Simpson Racing made their way to the pristine
Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri from May 25-28 for the
25th edition of the 'Show-Me 100,' which was once again sanctioned
by both the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the Lucas Oil
MLRA Series. Chad Simpson unfortunately missed out on transferring
into the $6,000 to win preliminary programs on Thursday and Friday,
but had high hopes of advancing into the $30,000 to win 'Show-Me
100.' Following a rain-out on Saturday evening, things picked
back up in a big way at Wheatland on Sunday night. Chad placed
seventh in his stacked B-Main and later advanced up to third in
the Non-Qualifiers Race. Unfortunately, the Mount Vernon, Iowa
ace was unable to crack the 'Show-Me 100' starting grid, as only
the Non-Qualifiers winner could start at the tail of the 100-lapper.

special on Thursday night at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson,
Iowa. Chad won his heat race in preliminary action and later drove
to a strong fourth place performance in the 40-lap feature behind
only race winner Chris Simpson, Tony Jackson, Jr., and Jimmy Mars!
Two more $3,000 to win MLRA spectaculars then took
center stage over the weekend at Davenport Speedway in Davenport,
Iowa and Independence Motor Speedway in Independence, Iowa. On
Friday evening at Davenport, Chad placed third in his heat race
and tenth in the 40-lap main event. In Saturday's weekend finale
at Independence, the Mount Vernon, Iowa star finished fourth in
his heat race and tenth once again in the 40-lapper, which ran
caution-free. Full results from the MLRA tripleheader can be accessed
