Third at Farmer City Summer Nationals

farmercity jul5In a similar scenario as Thursday night, Bobby was oh so close to victory again Friday night at Farmer City (IL) Raceway. Running right with the leader (Babb) lap-after-lap on the top early, Bobby threw everything he had at him as he tried the bottom and middle grooves hoping to have enough to get by but the high side had too much momentum. The first caution of the race on lap 37 ended Bobby's charge and he would eventually lose second late to come home third. “It was a fun race,” Bobby said. “Just wish that caution wouldn’t have came out. I had Babb set up. But that’s the way it goes. … I wish I could have got around Babb. Not that he was slow, because he was really fast. I felt like we were just a tick better. When you get behind cars and you’ve got that dirty air, it’s hard let alone stay with them, but to pass them is super tough. That one time I had him set up an that caution came out. Eventually we’ll get some luck on our side.” -- Jimmy Dearing Photo
