Benson Motorsports and Bobby Pierce Rally Late to Win in Pittsburgh,
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. Bobby would drive
up through the field passing Jimmy Owens on lap 91 for the lead
and pulled away over the final 9 laps to earn $20,000 for the victory.
"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.
"I can just see Mr. Lamm (Big C) smiling again and so happy.
I wish he would have been here to see this. He loved his Race Team
and he loved to win. I can't thank all our sponsors enough that
support us this year and make all this come together. I also have
to thank my entire family, my Dad, Mom, Cierra, my girlfriend Maddie,
and Kemp Lamm for the opportunity to drive for Dunn Benson Motorsports.
Also thanks to all my crew, Danny, Kent, Richard and Wayne for all
their hard work each week", stated Bobby Pierce.
