GREENWOOD, NE (July 22, 2016) – Jared Landers and Chris Simpson will start on the front row of Saturday night’s 6th Annual Silver Dollar Nationals at I-80 Speedway. Landers was the only driver amongst the 57 entrants to win two heat races in Friday night’s preliminary events.

RC Whitwell, Jesse Stovall, Chris Simpson, Jared Landers, Terry Phillips, Jimmy Owens won their respective first round heat races.

Whitwell, the former Crew Chief for Earl Pearson Jr. marched away in his heat race for an easy victory over his mentor. In heat two of round one, the current Lucas Oil MLRA point leader, Jesse Stovall started on the pole and led every lap for the win. Heat three in round one saw Chris Simpson come from the third starting spot to grab an impressive victory by more than a half a lap.

Jared Landers captured the first of his two heat race victories by taking heat four in round one. Landers, like Simpson, came from third for the victory. In one of the most exciting heat races of the evening, defending Lucas Oil MLRA Champion Terry Phillips held off current LOLMDS point leader Scott Bloomquist for the win in heat five of round one. In the sixth and final heat of round one, Jimmy Owens held off a hard-charging Shane Clanton for the win.

Shannon Babb, Shane Clanton, Tim McCreadie, Billy Moyer, Brandon Sheppard won their respective second round heat races.

Hall of Fame driver Billy Moyer came from third to win heat number four. Brandon Sheppard, who did not finish his heat in round one due to mechanical issues, stormed to the victory in heart number five. The twelfth and final heat of the night went to Jared Landers, who came from seventh to win and earn the pole position for Saturday night’s finale.
