17th to 2nd in Stream Invitational at Eldora!

eldora jun6Bobby rallied from his 17th starting position to score a runner-up finish on Saturday night in the inaugural Dirt Late Model Stream Invitational at Eldora (OH) Speedway. He had to take a provisional to get into the main event after suffering mechanical failure while leading his heat race. The race was shorter (67 laps) than a normal crown jewel race at Eldora, so Bobby needed to get to the front in a hurry...and he did. He was in the top ten by lap 17, top five on lap 22, and moved into second on lap 38. “Heck of a race!" Bobby said. "I really didn’t think (McCreadie) was gonna come from nowhere. I didn’t watch my dad the last five laps with the (signaling) sticks and then all of the sudden I seen a car there and I was like, ‘Well.’ I mean, there’s nothing I could do anyway ‘cause that wasn’t the line I was running. Honestly, I was hoping there was a caution and I could have a chance like we did on that restart to do something with Brandon (Sheppard) because (otherwise) I couldn’t with the air. The racetrack was really good...to provide racing like that. There’s nothing like Eldora Speedway. That’s why I love coming here. Big thanks to all my family, crew, sponsors, and the fans.” -- Zach Yost Photo
