Runner-Up in Lucas Silver Dollar Nationals at Huset's

husets jul22 1Bobby gave it all he had but had to settle for second in the Silver Dollar Nationals Lucas Series race Saturday night at Huset’s (SD) Speedway. Starting eighth in the 80-lap race, he moved up to second by halfway and started pressuring Sheppard for the top spot. The best chance Bobby had to take the lead was with 30 laps to go when he attempted a slider and almost had Sheppard cleared only to have him sneak by. “I wish I would have tried the bottom sooner,” Bobby said. “I just couldn’t make that run on him, so I was hoping for some lapped cars to hold him up, and maybe I could cross him [Sheppard] over. That was a heck of a race to come from eighth like that. We were on the move pretty quick. I don’t know how he [Sheppard] fit around me there in turn four that one lap, that was nuts. I had the slider basically cleared and he just got around and that won him the race.”
