Strong Speedweeks Continues with Third Place Run Friday

Bobby continues to run strong in Florida as he notched his career-best Lucas Oil Series finish with a third place run on Friday. Setting fast time of the 36 cars on hand put the #32 on the pole of his heat race. Bobby took advantage of that by leading every lap for a convincing win, taking the checkers nearly a straightaway ahead of second.

Starting on the pole of the 50-lap feature, Bobby held his own. It was a great four-car battle late as the "Smooth Operator" made his move to the track's high groove and ran down the two leaders ahead of him, briefly moving to second but couldn't hold it, falling back to third at the finish.

“The top, it just all of a sudden came in like crazy,” said Pierce, who scored his second top five of the week. “Once I got going up there I really went for it because I knew it was probably my only chance. I definitely wanted to win, but that was some of the best fun you’ll ever have right there."
