Pierce Wins First Ever AELMT Event at Farmer City

August 31, 2019

 

 

Farmer City, IL (Friday, August 30, 2019) - The American Ethanol Late Model Tour made their first ever appearance at Farmer City Raceway on Friday night, where 35 of the area’s best tried to drive their way to the $5,000 prize and YellowHose.com Victory Lane at the end of the DUPONT 40.  While 34 drivers tried, none could derail Bobby Pierce.

 

Jimmy Mars and Allen Weisser lead the 24 car field to the American Ethanol Green flag.  Mars jumped out to the early lead as the top 10 cars shuffled their position. Pierce wasted no time cracking the top five, as with less than 10 laps completed, Pierce had driven from the ninth starting spot, to the lead passing Brian Shirley, Mike Spatola, and Scott James in one swoop on the top of the Raceway.  From there, the race was on for the rest of the top five.

 

Mars held his ground in the second spot as the field closed in on heavy lapped traffic.  He and Shirley raced side-by-side temporarily, as Shirley put Mars back to third, and quickly gapped the front row starter.  Laps later, the first caution flag of the night flew when Bob Gardner cut a tire and spun off the top of turn four.

 

On the restart, it appeared as though Mars and Shirley were going to tag team Pierce for the top spot, taking him three wide down the back stretch.  That was short lived, however, as Pierce used the high side momentum to again stretch his lead. Mars did drive back into the second spot, placing Shirley pack to third.  From there the remainder of the race would go green, and Bobby Pierce collected the first ever win for the American Ethanol Late Model Tour from Farmer City Raceway. Mars, Shirley, Billy Moyer, and Spatola rounded out the top five.

 

Next up for the AELMT, is another first time appearance on Saturday, August 31st, this time at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, IL, where another $5,000 will be on the line.
