Nabs Pair of Top Fives in Thaw Brawl!
1, 2018) Chad Simpson and the Brinkman Motorsports team
kicked off their final season together on March 30-31 at LaSalle
Speedway in LaSalle, Illinois, as the Lucas Oil MLRA Series presided
over the 7th edition of the 'Thaw Brawl.' On Friday night in the
$5,000 to win weekend opener, Chad timed in second fastest in
Group A during qualifying, won his heat race, and later claimed
a strong fifth place performance in the 50-lapper behind only
winner Shannon Babb, Ricky Weiss, Dennis Erb, Jr., and Brandon
Sheppard. During Saturday's 'Thaw Brawl' finale at the 1/4-mile
bullring, which carried a whopping $15,000 paycheck, Chad won
his heat race once again in preliminary action and led the first
seventeen circuits of the 75-lap main event before winding up
fourth in the final finishing order behind only race winner Chris
Simpson, Rusty Schlenk, and Ricky Weiss! Full results from the
'Thaw Brawl' doubleheader can be viewed online at www.mlraracing.com.

Eager to Start Silver Anniversary Season!
22, 2018) When Chad Simpson jumps behind the wheel of
his potent Brinkman Motorsports #25 Black Diamond Chassis next
weekend at LaSalle Speedway in LaSalle, Illinois to the lift the
lid on his 2018 campaign, he will be embarking on the start of
his 25th season of racing! Chad started racing go-karts in 1993
at the age of fourteen and later moved up to full-bodied stock
cars in 2000. Just four years later in 2004, Chad joined forces
with current car owners Bud and Denise Brinkman and the team has
racked up numerous special event wins - highlighted by a 2015
Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series triumph at the storied Knoxville
(IA) Raceway - and eleven series championships (6 Corn Belt Clash,
2 WDRL, 1 MLRA, 1 Indee Open, and 1 USRA)!
What will make this Silver Anniversary season for the Mount Vernon,
Iowa native so emotional and bittersweet is that this will be
the FINAL CHAPTER for Brinkman Motorsports. While Chad's racing
career is far from over, Bud and Denise have decided that 2018
will be the final year of car ownership and they will be selling
out their equipment at the conclusion of the season. According
to Chad, "They have had a lot of fun at the racetrack over
the years and enjoyed racing with me, but they are ready to do
other things in life and I can't blame them." | full
