BELLEVILLE, Ill. – June 24, 2015 – Bobby Pierce powered from pole to checkers on Wednesday night at Belle-Clair Speedway to earn his second DIRTcar Summer Nationals victory of the season.

Pierce, who leads the tour’s championship battle, held off Rodney Melvin midway through the 40-lap main event and fought off Shannon Babb down the stretch to earn the $5,000 victory.

Babb, whose two-race win streak ended with Pierce’s win, Melvin, Ryan Unzicker and former Summer Nationals champion Brandon Sheppard rounded out the top five.

“It feels really good,” said Pierce, of Oakwood, Ill., who also won last year’s DIRTcar Summer Nationals event at Belle-Clair. “This is starting to become one of my favorite tracks. I’m really good at these little bullrings. You can get up on the cushion and get a good run off.”

The DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour heads to Clarksville (Tenn.) Speedway on Thursday night.
