(October 8, 2018) - The Dunn Benson Motorsports Team and driver Bobby Pierce picked up their 4th WIN of 2018 this past weekend in Pittsburgh, PA winning the "Pittsburgher 100" in dramatic fashion. Bobby started 10th in the 100-lap feature event sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, but pitted during a caution on lap 44 and restarted at the tail of the field.

"It was a perfect time to pit because it gave me a lot of race left to get to the front," stated Pierce. "After I pitted I thought I was a sitting duck because I was running in the back there for a while. Then I started running a top line further than I was before and that helped. When I caught the top two it looked like Sheppard was hanging on and Owens was going to be hard to beat. He is so good in these 100-lap races. Our car was better on longer runs. I didn't know how this race would turn out since this is my first time ever racing here. It is truly a momentum track and it turned out to be a great race. I hope we get to come back here next year," said Pierce. | team press release

(September 16, 2018) - Dunn-Benson Motorsports (DBM) made their way to the Hawkeye State on September 13-15 for the 15th Annual 'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals' at the storied Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. The action started at the 1/2-mile, semi-banked speedplant with a pair of preliminary shows - each of which paid $7,000 to the winner. On Thursday night, Bobby Pierce won his heat race, but lost a powerplant in the 25-lap feature event to finish in the twenty-first spot. At Knoxville on Friday evening, Bobby once again took the win in his heat race before advancing up to eleventh in the 25-lapper.

By virtue of racking up the twenty-second highest point total during preliminary competition, Bobby earned the right to the outside of the eleventh row for the start of Saturday's 100-lap crown jewel spectacular. The Oakwood, Illinois standout then looked like a serious contender for the whopping $40,000 payday in the 'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals,' as he vaulted all the way up to second and briefly took the lead from eventual winner Jimmy Owens with a slider. However, Bobby was later involved in a skirmish with Don O'Neal on lap 88 and was forced to salvage a seventh place performance in the extra-distance affair.
