Bobby Pierce Bags First Crown Jewel; Wins Sunoco North/South 100

UNION, KY (August 13) - Bobby Pierce took the lead from Scott Bloomquist on lap 91 and led the rest of the way to win the biggest race in his young career on Saturday night at Florence Speedway. The 19-year-old second generation driver charged from the 16th starting spot to win the 34th Annual Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100 - presented by Lucas Oil. Pierce earned $50,000 for his family-owned team. Bloomquist was seeking his first win the annual event since 2000, but settled for second, followed by Dale McDowell, Devin Moran, and Don O'Neal.
"A lot of guys gave me plenty of room tonight. I passed Billy Moyer and then later Scott Bloomquist for the win. I just don't know what to say; to win a crown jewel at a track that I haven't raced a lot is really cool. I was just glad the top was there. A big shout out to Bob Pierce Race Cars, Advanced Suspension, Pro Power Engines, Champion Spark Plugs, Allgayer Inc., Hoosier, VP, and all the other sponsors who make it work."
O'Neal looked strong in the early going by leading the first 32 laps until he and third-place running Jared Landers got hooked up on restart as both cars had to go to the pit area for repairs - losing their spots in the running order. Bloomquist inherited the lead and held on until the high-flying Pierce slid under him entering turn one on lap 91 to take over the top spot.
Pierce nearly scored his first career crown jewel back in May at the Show-Me 100 at Lucas Oil Speedway, but suffered a cut tire just after taking over the lead. "Yes, this is some redemption for what happened at Wheatland. I was just hoping the tire would stay tonight and it did. I want to give a shout out to the Clauson and Floyd Families and tell them we are all thinking of them."
Bloomquist extended his series points lead over Jonathan Davenport who dropped out of the race and finished 25th. "He [Pierce] ran a good race, the top was where you needed to be. The right tire seems to be fine, our left rear kind of gave up there at the end. We have finished second so many times in this race, but we had a good weekend overall."       
Completing the ten were Dennis Erb Jr., Jackie Boggs, Billy Moyer, Tim McCreadie, and Steve Francis.
