Bobby Leads First Half of Illini 100, Finishes Third

Bobby drew the fourth starting position to start the night. He wouldn't stay there long. Jumping to the lead on lap three, the "Smooth Operator" would go on and lead all the way until a lap 45 restart that saw him fall back to third. The latter part of the race saw the track take rubber which limited the chance to get back to the front. Bobby stayed in line and brought home a solid third place finish. Missing qualifying due to a failed MSD box and wiring problems, Bobby started last in his heat race on preliminary night of the Illini 100 Friday at Farmer City. He would not let that get him discouraged as he raced his way into the lead in only five laps en route to winning the heat race.
