Season Concludes with 17th to 3rd Run at World Finals!

charlotte nov10Bobby put a wrap on a breakout season with a 17th to third charge through one of the strongest fields of drivers he faced all year at the WoO World Finals at Charlotte on Saturday.

The weekend didn't start out as well as it finished as Bobby and his team struggled to get a hold of the track. Mid-pack qualifying efforts on Thursday put him starting deep in his heat races on both Friday and Saturday, and the disappointment of failing to make Friday's main event gave the team extra motivation to improve. He and his crew quickly adapted and were much improved on Saturday night. He advanced from fifth to third in his heat race before making his impressive charge to the front in the main event.

"It always takes just a couple laps to learn a new track," Pierce said. "There's a couple things out there that I still need to figure out, but I think after making laps yesterday and the day before, I just finally got a hold of it. Just like Eldora, after a couple nights there, I finally got it figured out.

"We all had to figure the track out and finally got a good setup for it. I was just glad to turn around a 17th-place starting spot and make a third-place finish out of it."
