Chad Simpson on Podium in DLM Dream Prelim!
(June 13, 2021) A lucrative, four-day stretch for the Moring Motorsports team took place from June 9-12, as a pair of 'Dirt Late Model Dreams' were held at the famed Eldora Speedway. On Wednesday in the opening night of the 27th Annual 'Dirt Late Model Dream' at the Rossburg, Ohio oval, Chad Simpson ran second in his heat race prior to streaking past a handful of competitors during his Twin 25 feature to land on the podium in third behind only $10,000 victor Brandon Overton and runner-up Kyle Bronson. At the "Big E" on Thursday night, Chad won his heat race and later started the $127,000 to win headliner from the outside of the front row. Unfortunately, the Mount Vernon, Iowa ace ran into issues and wound up twenty-first in the final rundown of the 100-lapper.

The #1 team then set their sights on the 26th edition of the 'Dirt Late Model Dream' over the weekend at the 1/2-mile, high-banked speedplant. In Friday's $10,000 to win Twin 25, Chad placed fifth in his loaded heat race prior to finishing fifteenth at the conclusion of the 25-lap sprint. At Eldora on Saturday evening, Chad unfortunately failed to transfer into the $126,000 to win crown jewel extravaganza after running sixth in his heat race and eighth in his B-Main.

Chad Simpson Seeks Strong Start to MLRA Season
(March 26, 2021) Last October Chad Simpson was on the verge of securing his third career Lucas Oil MLRA title, only to end up a mere five points shy of the top spot to eventual champion Jeremiah Hurst when the final checkered flag waved. Now, with a new Black Diamond Chassis at his ready, the always determined driver from Mount Vernon, IA is excited to get back on track and see where the season takes him. (Fast Track Photos)

While he admits losing out on the 2020 title was disappointing, it has not deterred the team from coming back even stronger in 2021. “It was definitely tough when it was all said and done to know that we lost by five points, knowing that we were to get one more night in and unfortunately that got cancelled on us due to weather. At the end of the day, like I told my guys, you know we gave it up braking a driveshaft at Farley earlier in the year and having a flat tire at Moberly when we were leading. We gave plenty of opportunity and I feel like we gave the championship up rather than losing it just by some mistakes and DNF’s on our behalf.”

The 2020 MLRA campaign found the “Duece Nickel” collecting 13 top 10’s and 7 top 5’s, including four podium finishes en route to finishing as the series runner-up. While he didn’t visit MLRA victory lane he did collect a pair of feature wins at Mississippi Thunder Speedway, a track that now finds itself on the current MLRA schedule for the first time in 2021. | full story
