DARLINGTON, Wis. — It was the third year for stars of the Corn Belt Clash to highlight the racing season at Lafayette County Speedway and this year was the best yet.

Defending race champ, Dave Eckrich was the early leader and looked good to repeat. Before long Billy Moyer Jr. worked his way to the led and passed Eckrich and was in command.

While all this was going on CBC Champion Chad Simpson was stalking and pounced for the lead and win over Moyer Jr. It was a night of stars and Hall of Famers all trying to tame the tight and fast half-mile Wisconsin oval and the crowd left cheering.

Jason Utter and Home Track Champ, Mike Fryer battled lap after lap. Utter took the forth place position but the Mike Fryer fought hard to get fifth, keeping the local faithful on the edge of their seats.
