MAPLE PARK, Ill. — Bobby Pierce took the lead after a spin on the opening lap and proceeded to lead the entire distance during Monday’s DIRTcar Summer Nationals feature at Sycamore Speedway.
Outside polesitter Charlie Olsen spun on the opening lap of the 50-lap contest, allowing Pierce to move up and inherit a front row starting position.
When the race finally got underway Pierce shot into the lead, a position he wouldn’t give up for the entire distance. He finished more than a second ahead of runner-up Jason Feger.
Ryan Unzicker finished third, followed by Frank Heckenast Jr. and Mike Spatola.
With the victory, Pierce reclaimed the DIRTcar Summer Nationals championship lead over Brian Shirley.
The event was originally scheduled for June 14, but rain stopped the program before it could be completed and it was rescheduled for Monday. Sixteen of the 22 drivers that qualified for the feature returned to complete it.
Tyler Nicely won the companion DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals event.
