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.”

farmercity apr12Bobby fell just short at the finish (0.072 seconds) in the opener of the Illini 100 Friday night at Farmer City (IL) Raceway. He started sixth in the 40-lap World of Outlaws Series race and was on the move early. Running third on lap six, Bobby was pushed off the track and fell back to sixth, again. He refused to be deterred as he mounted a stirring comeback. He was running second on the final lap when the leader bobbled in the final corner giving Bobby the chance that he was looking for. “When he bobbled and got up on the cushion and got stuck up on it, I saw it out of the corner of my eye, so I gassed it and got ahead of him,” Bobby said. “I expected him to come down and get me on the front. I don’t know how he made it work. I thought I won because I couldn’t see him because he was so far off the track. The car was really good. Farmer City is always really challenging, always up on the wheel and it’s an Illinois bullring for sure. You got to be up on the wheel the whole race, a big ole cushion in turns three and four.”

maquoketa mar29Taking the lead on lap 17, Bobby pulled away to an over five-second lead at one point as he cruised to a $10,000 win in the opener of the Nippy 50 Friday night at Maquoketa (IA) Speedway. “The track was great,” Bobby said. “It was a tough challenge to get to the front there. I feel like the car was a lot better in the feature than it was in the heat race. Overall, a great night for my team! Shoutout to Hoker Promotions LLC for putting this event on. Big thanks to all of my family, crew, sponsors, and fans for always sticking with me.”

brownstown mar23Bobby fell just short of the win Saturday night at Brownstown (IN) Speedway in the annual Indiana Icebreaker. Starting fifth in the 50-lap Lucas Oil Series race, he took the lead for the first time on lap 16, staying out front for five laps. An entertaining back-and-forth battle ensued between Bobby and Moran until Bobby regained the point on lap 23. He looked to get away from the field as he navigated his way through heavy traffic but lost the lead on lap 37. Bobby didn’t give up, however, as he tried several different racing lines as he tried to regain the lead but would have to settle for a runner-up finish on this night. “That was an awesome race tonight,” Bobby said. “I didn’t really expect the track to be that good. I didn’t expect him [Moran] to roll the top like he did. It was a fun race and we’re glad to finish second tonight.”

boothill mar9Bobby led the final five laps Saturday night at Boothill (LA) Speedway to secure the $10,000 Adams Memorial Comp Cams Series victory. “I hated to see that for Dillard,” Bobby said. “It was going to be a pretty good battle. I feel like both of us were kind of slowing down a little bit. Our tires were going away, and with the battle in lapped traffic, it was getting really interesting. I’m excited to get a win in my first start in the state of Louisiana. The track was really cool.”

volusia champWith the cancellation of the finale on Saturday, Bobby has been crowned the DIRTcar Nationals points champion! He scored two wins in the week-long (five-race) event along with a pair of third-place finishes. "I'm fortunate to be crowned the Big Gator champion and to leave Florida with the World of Outlaws Late Model Series points lead," Bobby said. He collected $3,000 for winning the points title.

volusia feb12Bobby led the final 13 laps to claim the $7,000 DIRTcar Nationals win in Wednesday night’s makeup from Monday’s rainout at Volusia (FL) Speedway Park. “That was an exciting race,” Bobby said. “Lots of stuff going on there. I feel like everything happened pretty quick. Like, I caught Marlar and Ricky (Thornton) wasn’t too far ahead at that time but then he started to pull away and next thing I know, Ricky got all crossed up. I went under him and then I jumped the cushion and then here comes Marlar and we went three-wide. I saw how they were going into the corner and I thought ‘This isn’t good,’ so I backed off, used the bottom, and next thing I know, they washed up the track. Luckily, I got the lead and tried not to make any mistakes because it was slick as ice out there. It was super hard to drive, especially on a half-mile track. Even when I had the lead comfortably, I still had to make sure to not make a mistake in the corners.”

volusia feb14Bobby led all 20 laps from the pole to grab his second gator of his career Wednesday night in the caution-filled DIRTcar Nationals race at Volusia (FL) Speedway Park. He jumped out to a commanding lead from the start as he pulled away to a half a straightaway advantage after two laps. He didn’t let the many cautions hinder him as he cruised to the $5,000 victory. “It feels like a rebound pretty good there,” Bobby said after mechanical trouble sidelined him while leading on Tuesday. “We’ve had a bad fast race car this whole time. It’s awesome to finally put it in victory lane where it belongs. I can’t thank my crew enough; they’ve been working hard.”

waikaraka jan27Bobby led all 25 laps from the pole to score the Super Saloon win Saturday at Waikaraka (NZ) Speedway. He jumped out to a straightaway lead early before having to slice his way through heavy lapped traffic late to take the victory. “Thanks to Harding Motorsport for the opportunity,” Bobby said.

vado jan13Taking the lead on the second lap, Bobby cruised to his fourth straight $11,000 Wild West Shootout win Saturday night at Vado (NM) Speedway Park. With the victory, he has earned the $25,000 bonus for winning four miniseries races. “With the full track prep, we didn’t know what it was gonna do there,” Bobby said. “Had a lot of different mixtures of tires of guys running up front with different (compounds). It feels awesome (to bank the bonus money). No one has ever won more than three — I’ve done it before — and we knew this would be the year with how consistent we were last year and coming into this being fast right out of the gate with this new car."

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.

vado jan10Bobby picked up his second consecutive and tenth career Wild West Shootout victory Wednesday night at Vado (NM) Speedway Park. He led the opening lap from his outside front row starting position before the track started to become bottom-dominant. “I didn’t expect the track to do that,” Bobby said. “I thought the top would’ve been there too … it’s just one of them deals where I guess it got so crumby and no one was up there to blow it off.” He briefly lost the top spot before regaining it back on lap four. Bobby stayed out front until lap 20 when he slid high trying to navigate his way around lapped traffic and lost the lead. He regained command a lap later and stayed in control the rest of the 30-lap distance. “The lapped traffic was crazy,” Bobby said. “They’re holding their lines; they’re doing what they can … it’s just a tricky situation with the racetrack. That’s the only line to choose from.”

vado jan7Bobby slid into the lead on lap 37 and stayed out front the rest of the way to claim the $11,000 Wild West Shootout win Sunday night at Vado (NM) Speedway Park. Starting on the pole of the 40-lap race, he fell back to fourth early before rallying for his first victory of the season. “That was an awesome race,” Bobby said. “I knew it had to be that time (to complete the slide-job pass on Marlar). I knew Mikey was probably gonna come down, but I had to stick my nose in there and go for it. I figured it was only a matter of time before he probably moved up in turn one, and if he would’ve moved up, he probably would’ve gotten me so I had to go for it. We have a lot of sponsors here, and it’s cool to be in victory lane with them.”
