MLRA's Iowa tripleheader continues with Friday's race at Davenport Speedway and Saturday's at Independence Motor Speedway. ... Simpson is MLRA's only repeat winner in five trips to Donnellson. ... Among drivers failing to make the feature lineup: Jeremy Grady, Gordy Gundaker, Jay Johnson, Rickey Frankel, Rob Toland, Justin Reed, Todd Frank and Mike Stadel.
On the move: Eighth-starting Jimmy Mars of Menomonie, Wis., finished third.
