Bobby Breaks Through with First Summer Nationals Win!

lincoln jun30At a track where Bobby has raced and won at many times through his career coming up the ranks in the KidModz and later the Crate Late Models, on Sunday night he broke through and won his first major event in the Super Late Models, winning the $10,000 UMP Summer Nationals at Lincoln. He also becomes the youngest driver in history to win a Summer Nationals race.

Starting second in the 60-lap race, Bobby took the lead on lap nine and dominated the remainder of the event for his first-ever series victory. He opened up a half-straightaway lead by the time he reached lapped traffic just before lap 15, then stretched it to a straightaway by lap 20 as he worked his way through the slower cars with precision. He maintained his lead through the rest of the way, lapping all the way to the ninth spot as the second half of the race ran caution free.

"We've been trying so hard to do this, getting top fives and coming close. It's so hard to win these things; you've got the best of the best. I'm so glad to finally get one. It's amazing."
