Silver Dollar Nationals Heartbreaker

Bobby mounted a remarkable rally from his 28th starting position to put himself in position to capture his biggest paying win Saturday night in his first visit to I-80 (NE) Speedway. He was on a rail running the very top of the track as he reached the top ten in only 13 laps. He took the lead for the first time on lap 42. Unfortunately, misfortune would strike again. While leading with only six laps to go in the 80-lap race, and enjoying a full straightaway advantage, he slowed with engine trouble. “I’m just really glad that we had a fast car,” Bobby said. “I don’t know how to act. When it happened — and I knew it was gonna happen because for like five laps, or even longer than that, something was acting up and the power in the motor just got less and less and it finally gave out. I feel bad obviously for everybody. We work so hard, and to perform as well as we did and not get it there at the end — we just needed a couple more laps — it hurts.”
