Pierce Hits For $30,000 At Fairbury

FAIRBURY, Ill. — Bobby Pierce took the lead after a lap-37 restart and led the last 23 laps of the FALS Spring Shootout Presented by Titan Industries on Saturday night at Fairbury Speedway. On the restart Erb led Babb and Hudson O’Neal, who had slipped back to third after starting from the pole. O’Neal took second from Babb on lap 18 and then started to close the gap on Erb as was encountering traffic in front of him. A restart on lap 36 would see Erb and O’Neal complete one lap before contact between the two in turn one. On the restart, O’Neal would be the race leader but before he would officially lead a lap Pierce nipped him at the scoring line to take the lead for the first time in the race with 37 laps in the record books. With ten laps to go it was Pierce, Wilson and O’Neal in a battle for the race lead. O’Neal didn’t give up on Pierce as he started to reel him in. The last two laps they were two-wide in front of me so there wasn’t anywhere to go.
