Under the threat of on-coming storms, 31 Corn Belt Clash Late Models checked into the high-banked quarter-mile speed plant in Peoria. Second-generation driver, Bobby Pierce of Oakwood, Illinois captured the Isky Racing Cams Heat One over veteran Billy Drake. ‘The Squirrel’ Brian Shirley captured the win in the Comp Cams Second Heat Race with CBC regular Chris Simpson capturing the JE Pistons Third and final heat race.
Just as the final Corn Belt Clash heat race finished, the sky began to open up and once again, the rain began to fall. After a short delay, CBC Officials and track promoters decided to pull the plug on the event and complete the event at a future date.
