Bobby Dominates $20,000 Illini 100 at Farmer City!

farmercity apr13Taking the lead on lap 13, Bobby pulled away to a commanding 8.8 second advantage at the checkers as he collected his second career Illini 100 trophy and $20,000 top prize Saturday night at Farmer City (IL) Raceway. He started fourth in the 60-lap World of Outlaws Series race. Once he took the top spot, he was flawless navigating through heavy traffic as he lapped up to ninth place in a race that went caution-free after the fourth circuit. “I made a last-second call on the tires,” Bobby said. “My dad was like ‘Are you sure?’ and I said yes because the Midgets slicked up the track. It just worked out for us, I loved to see the race go caution-free the rest of the way once we got going. That really helped us out there.” Farmer City has been a track that Bobby has had much success throughout his career, including picking up his first-career Crate Late Model victory in 2009 at the age of 12. “Growing up here, watching races as a young kid and I remember watching Late Models around here and thinking ‘Man, these guys are crazy for running the cushion like that,’” Bobby said. “So, it’s pretty cool to get another win here.”
