Bobby Collects Third $10,555 Slocum 50 Victory!

34 10555 apr20Taking the lead with seven laps to go, Bobby held on to collect his third Slocum 50 win of his career Saturday night at 34 (IA) Raceway. Starting fourth in the 50-lap race, he stayed within sight of the leaders in the first half of the event before making his late-race charge. "It might have taken about 30 laps for my front tires to get warmed up," Bobby said. "Running on this hard tire rule is a little different. All night it felt a little slimy until the track really got black like these tires like, and it let us put on a good show for the fans." On lap 32, he made the pass for second and then went after the leader. Charging around the outside of turn four, he assumed command as lap 43 was completed. "Man, that was a tough race, but probably one of the funnest I have ran." -- Dennis Krieger Photo
