Bobby Breaks Through with $5,000 Summer Nationals Win at Jacksonville!

jacksonville5000jun16Recording top four finishes in three of the first four Summer National races, Bobby had the consistency but was hoping to find victory lane. On Tuesday night in Jacksonville, he finally broke through and scored the $5,000 UMP Summer Nationals victory. Starting on the pole, the Smooth Operator took the lead on lap 11 and ran away from the pack in the green to checkers 40 lap race winning by 2.651 seconds.

"This isn't a track I really expected to win a race at," Pierce said after padding his early points lead on the month-long Summernationals series. "I'm normally good on these small tracks, but I haven't been good here before … so this win is pretty shocking to me. I want to stay consistent with this deal, and when I can get a win I'll take it so this is an extreme confidence booster. It's the fifth race of the tour so it's still real early, but hopefully now we can knock off a lot more of these races."
