gateway dec1Bobby Pierce backed up his Gateway victory in 2017 with a dominating win Saturday night inside The Dome at America's Center. Starting his Pierce Platinum Race Car on the pole, he led all 40 laps as he cashed in on a $30,000 payday. “This feels amazing to go back to back,” Pierce said. “Man I was pretty wore out after that race. That was kinda like riding a bull there. But man we got it done. I’m glad to win it again.” Fellow Platinum pilot Ryan Unzicker rallied from 15th to finish fifth. -- Heath Lawson Photo


gateway nov30Taking the lead on the eighth lap, Bobby Pierce stayed in front the rest of the way to pick up the $5,000 preliminary feature win driving his Pierce Platinum Race Car Friday night inside The Dome at America's Center (MO). “It was a heck of a race those first five to 10 laps,” said Pierce. “The track was actually awesome. I know no one likes to drive on a rough track, but for the top to keep up with the bottom, I hate to say it almost has to be like that I think.” -- Heath Lawson Photo


Bobby Pierce climbed back into his Pierce Race Car Saturday night at Cedar Lake (WI) Speedway and charged from his 20th starting position to score a top five finish in the USA Nationals crown jewel event. He piloted the same car that he drove to a third place finish in last year's event.

He started outside of the front row for the 40-lap race and led the first seven laps. “We could get through the ruts about 80 percent of the time, and I think that was the main key,” said Unzicker. “We just kept the car real free and rotating and it was able to run the middle-bottom there at the end and kind of protect my line, because the top was getting really, really rough. Our team definitely needed this. The car was good. It’s been good. We’ve just done some stupid adjustments here and there. I kind of went back to my basics of what I’ve been doing. It feels dang good to be back. It’s been a long time since I won 10-grand.” -- Todd Battin Photo

"The car was good and then it got loose. The fans got to see a heck of a race those last 15 laps." -- Rocky Ragusa Photo

"I feel like our program’s been pretty good and this is a good finish to show that.” -- Double J Photo
