Short Cool One Finds Success in Crate Late Models

May 19, 2009 -- Bobby Pierce continues his crate late model debut. Just 12 years old, the "Short Cool One" has run his crate late model in five events. His first night out at Vermilion County Speedway, he came up short as a lapped car spinning in the corner cost him the chance for the victory. He finished 2nd.

The following weekend, he also finished 2nd.

On his third night out, he was running 4th when a competitor lost his driveshaft and the debris went through Bobby's right rear tire, taking him out.

This weekend, again at Vermilion County Speedway, there were 21 cars. Bobby started 8th in the heat and finished 4th, started 8th in the feature, and finished 3rd. He had a great run as he reeled in the leaders. He felt that he had a chance to win on a restart; however the track put a lapped car between him and 2nd place and that lapped car held him up.

Last night, Bobby ran his crate car for the first time at Lincoln Speedway. Unfortunately, he drew the tail of his heat, which has been his luck so far this year! He struggled a bit in the heat, as the track was super tacky. His small motor wasn't enough for heavy conditions. However, he started 14th in the feature and picked his way up to 6th place. He was really fast, and felt if he would have had a better starting position, he would have been in contention for the win.

This kid has been running great and has hopes of following in his dad's (Bob Pierce) footsteps into a super late model career.
