WRAPS UP BUSY SEASON BOLSTERED BY 5 WINS!
27, 2020) Even with the months of March and April wiped
out due to coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, Chris Simpson and
his #32 team were extremely busy during their 2020 campaign, which
started in January with the 'Wild West Shootout' at Arizona Speedway
and wrapped up over the October 16-17 weekend at Tri-City Speedway
in Granite City, Illinois. Chris won his heat race in the penultimate
Lucas Oil MLRA Series event of the season on Friday, October 16
and later drove to an impressive runner-up in the A-Main behind
only $5,000 victor Mason Oberkramer. (Todd Healy
Throughout 2020, Chris primarily competed in his familiar #32 Super
Late Model, but did also wheel car owner Doug Cue's IMCA Modified
at select events during the year. In all, the Oxford, Iowa standout
entered sixty-one (61) total races throughout 2020 and racked up
five (5) feature victories, twenty-one (21) Top Five finishes, and
thirty-four (34) Top Ten efforts.
Three of his wins came in IMCA Modified action in his home state
of Iowa, while Chris also visited victory lane in his Super Late
Model at Maquoketa Speedway in Maquoketa, Iowa back on June 13 and
at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois on September 24.
The triumph in Lucas Oil MLRA Series competition at Maquoketa was
worth $5,000, while his win in the first night of a tripleheader
at Granite City netted Chris another $2,000 payday. You can read

"I think we had a pretty good 2020 season - especially considering
the circumstances," quoted Simpson via telephone recently.
"Even with missing several races due to COVID postponements,
we were still able to compete in over 60 events, which is more than
what we have been doing the past couple of years. I think we really
picked our program up late in the season when we made the switch
to MB Customs racecars and I'm looking forward to starting off the
year with them in either Arizona or Florida early next season. A
huge thank you has to go out to each one of our sponsors and supporters,
as I could not do it without each one of them along with my family
