Bobby Banks $50,000 with XR Minnesota Mega Victory at Ogilvie!!

ogilvie jul3 1Bobby turned a weekend to forget into an unforgettable three-race stretch that saw him capture two wins, a runner-up finish, and $72,500 in earnings, culminating in his richest victory of the season Wednesday night as he banked $50,000 in the XR Minnesota Mega at Ogilvie (MN) Raceway. He started sixth in the 50-lap race but didn’t stay there long. On the opening lap, he climbed to third and made the pass for second on lap 13. Bobby seized control on lap 19 and never looked back as he pulled away to an over three-second advantage at the checkers in the caution-free race.

“I really looked forward to coming to this track,” Bobby said. “It had an awesome shape and everything to it. I obviously never raced here before, not knowing what it was gonna do, but it was an awesome racetrack. It really allowed us to go from sixth to first. It took about five or six laps for us to really get going. When I was riding in third, I kind of started catching those guys on the bottom, and then we caught some lapped traffic and I moved up and it felt pretty good up there too. I love the long runs. It really helps us. And the way we just set the car up and the way we do the tires, how we cut ’em and sipe ’em to make ’em last, it’s always hard when you go to a new racetrack. You never really know how it is on stuff, but I think we had an awesome setup tonight.”
