Simpson and Brinkman's Celebrate Win & Championship!
(October 14, 2018) In the final race of a 15 year run with car owners Bud and Denise Brinkman, Mount Vernon, Iowa ace Chad Simpson wrote a storybook ending on Saturday night, October 13 in the Lucas Oil MLRA Series finale at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri. Chad won his heat race in preliminary action and later rolled off starting eighth on the grid in the 'Fall Nationals' headliner. In the attrition-filled 40-lap main event, Chad drove to the front and grabbed the point following a lap 28 restart. After leading four circuits, Chad inherited the lead again with only four laps remaining when leader Logan Martin hit the turn three wall. He then beat Jack Sullivan, Raymond Merrill, Terry Phillips, and Payton Looney to the checkered flag to record the $5,500 triumph, which also secured Chad his second career Lucas Oil MLRA Series Championship!

Simpson Seventh in Twin 25 at Eldora; World 100 PPD

However, with the rainy remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon postponing Friday and Saturday's action at the "Big E" until October 12-13, only Thursday night's $10,000 to win Twin 25s escaped the wrath of Mother Nature. In the wee hours of Friday morning after a lengthy rain delay, Chad Simpson timed in 32nd fastest during the qualifying session before scoring an impressive win in his heat race. After starting fifth on the grid in his 25-lapper and running up front early, Chad eventually slipped back to seventh in the final finishing order.
