He was fastest overall qualifier and won his heat race to complete the sweep. “A lot of times you’re searching for just one win throughout the tour, so to just get it out of the way as soon as possible is really cool,” said Pierce, whose single-season career-high victory total on the Summer Nationals came in 2013 when he won four races, including one at Kankakee. “Last year I won twice. The year before that I won only one. So starting off the year with a win is really good." -- Jim DenHamer Photo
