fairbury may14In a race that was reminiscent of Bobby's heartbreaking loss at the 2019 Prairie Dirt Classic, this time Bobby came out on the winning end of a last-lap battle with Sheppard and cashed in on a $30,000 payday Saturday night at the Fairbury (IL) Speedway. "This time, he left me a little room," Bobby said. "So, thanks to him for doing that. It's just awesome man." Bobby swept the night as he was the fastest qualifier of the 50 cars on hand, won his heat race, and led all 60 laps of the MARS sanctioned feature. Hopefully, he can follow up tonight's success and finally win his first PDC at the 32nd edition in July.

msthunder may6Bobby moved up from his fifth starting position to claim the runner-up spot Friday night in the second and final Dairyland Showdown prelim feature at Mississippi Thunder (WI) Speedway. He continues to qualify well, as he was the overall fast qualifier. “We were kind of sitting around there in fifth and saw we were already at halfway, and I was like, man, we have to start making something happen,” Bobby said. “[Davenport], me and him were battling, and he kind of started to take off, and then shortly after I started to pass them guys, too. Luckily, we were able to get to second at the very end. We needed a caution before we could see if we had anything for JD.”

msthunder may5Bobby started on the pole and led all 40 laps Thursday night in the opener of the Dairyland Showdown at Mississippi Thunder (WI) Speedway. He drove away from the rest of the field at the start and remained unchallenged until a lap 21 restart. He held on through one more restart, moving his line to the bottom of the track, as he pulled away for his third career World of Outlaws victory. "The car was pretty maneuverable to be able to run [the bottom], middle, and top,” Bobby said. "We kind of just chased the track around, it was kind of ever-changing, and at the very end, the top felt good again. It was a good track and a picture-perfect day."

brownstown apr27Bobby rebounded from an 11th place finish the night before to grab a runner-up spot Wednesday night at Brownstown (IN) Speedway. He started fifth in the 50-lap FloRacing event and moved up to second early. With the rough track conditions on Tuesday, he unloaded a new car at Brownstown that had only two races on it. "It was really good from the start," Bobby said. "We got a good qualifying run tonight and that’s what kind of got the night rolling for us. We have had qualifying issues recently, so just putting a whole night together like we did tonight, that’s what we have to do every single night."

81 apr8Grabbing the lead on the opening lap, Bobby stayed out front the entire 30 lap distance en route to a $5,000 MLRA victory Friday night at 81 (KS) Speedway. He pulled away to a five-second advantage at the finish. "I really love it when a track is like that, it makes it challenging and really makes the restarts pretty hard," Bobby said, as he described running a different line at both ends of the track. "All in all, it was a great race track tonight. I felt like it was very racy, and I felt like I could have come from the back. As a racer, that’s all you can ask for."

i55 apr2After the Illini 100 was canceled earlier in the weekend, Bobby and his team made a last-minute decision to head south to Pevely on Saturday. Due to passing points, he started ninth in his heat race and moved up to third. Starting third in the feature, Bobby made the winning pass with five laps to go to pick up his first win of the season. "It was exciting to have some awesome new sponsors on the car in victory lane like Toyota of Danville, A-Plus Vacuum, and the Vermilion County Bobcats," Bobby said. "The owner of the Bobcats was there watching along with a couple of the hockey players. I couldn't do it without my long-term and new sponsors so shout out to them for all that they continue to do for me! Can't thank my crew, family, and fans enough."
