Three in a Row! Bobby Captures Third Straight $11,000 Wild West Shootout Win at Vado, Closes In on Bonus!

vado jan12Bobby shot to the lead on lap five and stayed out front the rest of the 30-lap distance to capture his third straight Wild West Shootout win Friday night at Vado (NM) Speedway Park. It wasn’t easy, however, as he had to overcome a race-long vibration caused by his right-rear tire being packed with mud early in the race. “I’ll be honest, we got super, super lucky there," Bobby said. "(It happened) on like lap four and you saw me drop to the bottom, because I almost was gonna pull in the infield or bring out a caution. I figured that if I pull in now, that’s 25 laps that I have to get back to the front, because I figured no way I’d be able to hang on to even a top five (with the problem). It’s just one of them deals man — I stayed out and I guess we kinda got lucky that those guys chose a harder tire.” With his third miniseries victory, Bobby is closing in on a bonus awarded to a driver with four wins ($25,000) or five wins ($100,000) with two races left.
