Second in Illinois Speedweek Opener at Spoon River

spoonriver may10Starting on the pole of the 50-lap FloRacing Night in America race Wednesday night at Spoon River (IL) Speedway, Bobby took control as he led 44 of the first 45 laps. While navigating through lapped traffic on lap 46, he got held up behind a slower car in front of him allowing Erb to roll around the bottom into the lead. Bobby was unable to get back around him and had to settle for second. “Yeah, I mean, (the lap 46 hiccup in traffic) definitely didn’t help me. But the lapped cars, you just have to work with them and try to pass them,” Bobby said. “I didn’t think he was going to move up that much. You want them to hold their lane, but it is what it is. I’m glad we finished the race. Second is really good; it’s not really a heartbreak. It’s good for the points for this deal and everything. Got to keep plugging away at it.”
