MACON, IL – Bobby Pierce collected the biggest win of his racing career at Macon Speedway. Pierce pocketed $12,000 for his win in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned, St Louis U-Pic-A-Part 100.
Pierce crossed the line a half a lap ahead of second place finisher, Brian Shirley. Steve Francis finished third followed by Jimmy Owens and Eddie Carrier Jr.
“I can’t believe how good the car was tonight, everything was great from the get-go. We set fast time, won our heat and led every lap in the feature. I got a little worried in traffic a few times, but everybody gave each other plenty of room. I hope the fans enjoyed the show tonight. To win the first Lucas Oil race here at Macon is special. My dad has a lot of wins here, and this is only the second time I have raced here in a Late Model.”
“The track was good all night. That rain in the Modified feature, I think helped a little. There was enough cushion up against the wall to keep me from hitting it. I have to thank my mom and dad, all of my crew, Pierce Race Cars, Bill Schlieper with Pro Power Engines, and all of my sponsors: Champion Spark Plugs, The Pierce Posse of course, Queen City Appraisals, Brown’s Quality Paint & Body, Petersen Aluminum, Keyser and everyone else.” It was Pierce’s second career LOLMDS victory. His first LOLMDS victory came in February at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL.
