Runner-Up (Again) in WoO Quad Cities 150 at Davenport

davenport aug27For the third consecutive night, Bobby fell one spot short of the top prize in the World of Outlaws three-day Quad Cities 150 at Davenport (IA) Speedway. He started ninth in the 70-lap finale but fell back outside the top ten in the early stages. With around 20 laps to go, he made his move to the front. Running the very top of the wall-less 1/4 mile, he was side-by-side with the leader on the final lap but was unable to edge ahead. "I was almost falling off the corner on every single corner," Bobby said. “The cushion was very, very thin and there was a little left in Turn 3 but not enough out of 4. This place provides such good racing all the time. It was a little more dirty tonight than I preferred, but it eventually got there. It just took a long, long time to get there. The last five laps, I was trying all I could because I knew Tanner (English) was so good on the bottom that it was going to be hard to beat him without being ahead of him on the restart. We did all we could to beat him, but we needed that position on him. Hard to pass a guy that good 2-3 times in a night.” The race ran caution-free until lap 60. After that, repeated cautions didn't go Bobby's way and some of his passes were erased by the yellows.
