Chris Simpson Dominates Clash At West Liberty Raceway

West Liberty, Iowa: Night number two of the back to back Corn belt Clash Open Late Model Racing Events belonged to Oxford, Iowa’s Chris Simpson. Chris Simpson put his #32 Open Late Model on the pole of the Coors Light 40 by virtue of winning his heat race. Simpson led the 40 lap feature flag to flag despite having National Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Scott Bloomquist running in second. The field was brought to Simpson’s rear bumper twice due to minor cautions but Simpson was dialed in and was never really threatened throughout the feature. Chirs’s brother Chad actually passed Bloomquist on a restart and ran second for a few laps before “Bloomer was able to recapture second. Chad Simpson crossed under the checkers in third ahead of Rodney Sanders of Happy, Texas.
 
In support class racing on Tuesday night it was Kurt Kile dominating the 25 lap Performance Concepts Modifieds. The feature went flag to flag and Kile won by more than a straight away. Derrick Stewart ran second ahead of Jeff Waterman. Tim Plummer showed his expertise of slick tracks in scoring the 20 lap feature win in the Weikert Iron & Metal Sportmods. Plummer took the win ahead of Dalton Simonsen and Charlie Weber.
 
Saturday, August 12th will be driver and Fan Appreciation night at the West Liberty Raceway with a full program of racing highlighted by FREE Grandstand admissions. Hot laps will get underway at 6:30 pm.
