Pierce Carves Up Peoria Field

That’s all it took for Bobby Pierce to carve up the quarter-mile bullring of Peoria Speedway and collect his first Hell Tour victory of the season. The race pace was hot, and Pierce cranked it up a few degrees warmer in wasting zero time with lapped traffic. “Once I got the lead, I was just trying to put a good distance on second,” Pierce said. As Pierce began to slow the pace down slightly, about a half-second per lap compared to the opening circuits, Feger began to reel him in with seven-to-go. “Fortunately, I found [the bottom lane] when I went down to pass a lapped car,” said Pierce, when he learned the field behind him was closing. After that, I moved down for them last few laps just to protect.
