Photo of the Day: Simpson vs. Schattschneider

img217 cmop Richard Simpson, leads rival Gene Schattschneider at Algona Raceway when took they tops off.

What a shot! Two of the legends of Kossuth County racing go toe-to-toe. Simpson, smooth and calculating, out in front of charging Schattschneider.

When Simpson recently found the photo, he commented, “I can’t believe I was leading.” And then laughed, “I didn’t think I ever beat him.”

The records show that both earned their share of trophies. Both are inductees in the Kossuth County Racing Hall of Fame.
