Jason Utter Captures First Win of Season In Thriller

 

 

Jason Utter Duels Chad Simpson for Iowa Home Win

The Corn Belt Clash roared back into action on Friday night at Cedar County Raceway in Tipton, Iowa. It was a day where rain could have won the show but the staff at the Tipton Bullring had other plans. Heavy equipment was bought in to work the black dirt into a tacky fast racing surface. The track developed a unique top and middle cushion for two fast lanes on the quarter mile oval.

The 30 lap feature was not decided until the white flag lap with Chad Simpson riding high and Jason Utter slinging low. Simpson appeared to have the slightest edge but slipped over the cushion giving Jason Utter his biggest opportunity of the night to take home the top prize. It was an Iowa race and Iowa drivers rounded out the top five. Spencer Diercks had one of his best runs of the year to grab third place with local Tipton, Iowa standout Jake Meier taking Forth. Veteran Denny Eckrich and the “Flying 50” took home Fifth place.
