springfield mar5Bobby went turkey hunting at Springfield (MO) Raceway Sunday night and bagged the top prize. He took the lead on lap 33 and stayed out front for the remaining eight circuits to capture the $10,075 Turkey Bowl victory. “Big thanks to my family, crew, and all my sponsors,” Bobby said. “Couldn't do it without you!”

volusia feb16Bobby dove underneath the leader going into turn one on the final lap pulling ahead down the backstretch and held on to steal the $10,000 WoO DIRTcar Nationals win away Thursday night at Volusia (FL) Speedway Park. He started fourth in the 30-lap race and jumped to second by the fourth lap. He never gave up as he rode in the runner-up spot lap-after-lap of the caution-free race. He closed to within a car length of the leader with three laps to go before making his move on the final circuit. “Wow...what a finish,” Bobby said. “I just kept poking in there on the bottom and I was getting better the lower I got. It was slimy so it had to come in. I think with about 10 laps to go … I looked up and there was 10 to go … and I thought there was like three to go. I was like, 'Well, we got to keep the tires under us a little bit more before I really push it.' I normally don't run the bottom like that. It's pretty nice down there, but it takes a lot of focus to hit your marks. One time I would miss it and I would talk to myself and say, ‘Man, you can't do that again.’ I talked to Jeff Leka and he told me, ‘Man you’ve won here before … just think about what you know how to do to win the race.’ That thought crossed my mind again and I dug down a little deeper and found something else. I can't thank my crew enough. They really work their butts off, working late and getting up early and getting what they need done so we can focus on what we need to do. Huge thanks to my family, sponsors, and fans!”

volusia feb14Starting on the pole for the second consecutive night, Bobby led laps 2-11 but had to settle for a runner-up finish Tuesday in the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia (FL) Speedway Park. “We made some adjustments that really helped,” Bobby said. “I think now we can actually tighten the car back up a little more. (Monday) we were too tight. Just trying to find a good balance, but these are some of the best guys here. It’s something we can build off of. The most important thing is getting laps here. Volusia is tricky to get around, but a lot of fun. So far everything is working wonderful and we really have a good piece.”

vado jan15Bobby came out on top and banked $25,000 after a thrilling finale to the Wild West Shootout at Vado (NM) Speedway Park on Sunday night. He started outside of the front row in the 50-lap race and traded the lead back and forth with Davenport early. After losing the lead in the middle stages, Bobby never gave up and retook the top spot on lap 43. The final seven laps were crazy with slider after slider being thrown between Bobby and Larson in a race that will be talked about for a long time. “That was so much fun,” Bobby said. “Kyle raced me so clean. It takes a guy like that to know exactly where he’s gonna put his race car and know exactly where I’m gonna put my race car afterwards. This place has become a very, very good racetrack.”

vado jan13Taking the lead on the 18th lap, Bobby earned a hard-fought $10,000 victory and snapped Davenport’s three-race winning streak Friday night in the fourth round of the Wild West Shootout at Vado (NM) Speedway Park. “What a race,” Bobby said. “Whenever you can beat the 49 you have to be at the top of your game. Had a lot of fun out there. We finally made the right call on the tires. I can't thank everybody enough for putting me in this position. Hats off to everybody, whether it's the crew guys, sponsors, everyone helps me out. I want to dedicate this win to Penny Hoker's sister, Molly. She's battling breast cancer right now. Want her to know she is in our thoughts and prayers.”

vado jan11Bobby made a valiant effort but fell just short Wednesday night in round three of the Wild West Shootout at Vado (NM) Speedway Park. Pulling to within a car length of the leader with six laps to go in lapped traffic, he couldn’t make the winning pass and had to settle for a runner-up finish. “We were catching them there,” Bobby said. “We had a shot and (Davenport) never made any mistakes. He’s a heck of a wheelman. So hard to pass there; you get those lapped cars in between you. It was so much fun. I was very happy with second. All in all, I think we were really good. We keep knocking on the door!”

vado jan7Bobby finished third Sunday night in the second round of the Wild West Shootout at Vado (NM) Speedway Park. He caught the top two with nine laps remaining and traded sliders with Larson in a very entertaining 40-lap feature. Bobby briefly took second but was unable to hold it. "Had a great car," Bobby said. "Learning a lot every time we pull on the track. Gave it everything we had, just came up a little short. Can't wait to get in this car again! It's a pleasure to be just a small part in the Longhorn Chassis group. Everyone involved has helped me out a lot. Hope everyone enjoyed that show!"
