25th to 4th in B-Main, 26th to 13th in A-Main at Dream

eldora jun9After failing to advance through his heat race Saturday night due to a blown right-rear tire that resulted in contact with the outside wall, Bobby needed to rally from deep in the field in his B-Main to have a chance to compete in the main event as only four cars would advance. Starting 25th in the 20-lap race, Bobby put on an impressive display of skill and determination as he mounted a spectacular comeback and grabbed the fourth and final transfer spot on the 19th lap and advanced on to race in the 100 lapper as the large Eldora crowd watched in amazement. “Honestly, I thought it was impossible,” Bobby said after the race. “I didn’t even know what place I was in, I was just hoping I was in fourth place.” Starting 26th in the $100,000 to win Dream, Bobby stayed on the lead lap, as the final 57 laps ran caution-free, and moved up to 13th at the checkers. -- Heath Lawson Photo
