Chris Simpson and the #32 team finally wrapped up their version of the 2016 racing season on December 15-17 in the inaugural running of the 'Gateway Dirt Nationals' inside of The Dome at America's Center in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. A 1/5-mile dirt bullring was constructed inside of the spacious dome and a large crowd was on hand to witness the historic weekend of indoor action. Things kicked off for the Super Late Models on Thursday night with two rounds of qualifying and Chris was able to lay claim to the sixth quickest lap of the 97 competitors in attendance.

On Friday evening, Chris scored an impressive victory in his loaded heat race and later started the $5,000 to win preliminary feature event from the outside of the second row. The Oxford, Iowa native was then a fixture towards the front of the talented field throughout the 25-lap sprint before eventually winding up fifth at the checkers behind only victor Shannon Babb, Darrell Lanigan, Jason Feger, and Scott Bloomquist. After drawing the seventh starting spot for Saturday's $20,000 to win 'Gateway Dirt Nationals' headliner, Chris unfortunately ran into trouble early in the 40-lapper and retired from the race in the eighteenth position.
