What won the race: Threading the needle with a three-wide pass on a lap-11 restart, Chad Simpson of Mount Vernon, Iowa, earned a $5,000 victory in Friday’s 40-lap makeup of Friday's Dairyland Showdown at Mississippi Thunder, adding a $2,000 victory in a second feature at the third-mile oval.
Quotable: “I screwed up a couple of times (and) I didn't how (close second-running Jimmy Mars) was to me, but I knew he had to be pretty decent because he started 10th and was up to second," Simpson said. "We just had to run the wheels off this thing. It felt like the tire was doing down a little bit on the right rear, or it was shredding one of the two. I know I was fading a little bit there at the end and we just hung on there."
Key notes: Simpson won his first two features of the season. ... Fast qualifier Jake Timm led the first 10 laps, dropped out of the top three near halfway and retired on lap 24. ... Lance Matthees drew a caution with a lap-28 spin. ... Sixth-running James Giossi hit the wall hard between turns one and two early in the 40-lapper, drawing a red flag; he wasn't hurt. ... In the $2,000-to-win feature, Simpson won over Dustin Sorenson, Lance Matthees, Jimmy Mars and A.J. Diemel. ... The Dairyland Showdown was rained out Aug. 21 after prelims. … Seventeen of 25 scheduled drivers returned for the event. … Lance Hofer won the USRA-sanctioned Limited Late Model feature.
On the move: Runner-up Jimmy Mars of Menomonie, Wis., started 10th.
