Bobby Pierce put an exclamation mark on his 2014 UMP National Points Championship by dominating the UMP Late Model Feature during the Saturday finale of the DIRTcar Fall Nationals presented by Allstar Performance.

Despite having nearly a half-track lead negated by multiple cautions, Pierce was never seriously challenged for the victory and lapped up to 10th place in the 40 lap affair.

Kent Robinson, Scott James, Matt Miller and Jeep VanWormer completed the top five Late Model finishers.

Kenny Wallace led the first 18 laps of the UMP Modified Feature before surrendering the top spot to eventual winner Brian Ruhlman, who would lead the final 7 circuits.

Rounding out the top five Modified finishers were Nick Hoffman, Matt Mevert, Kenny Wallace and Jacob Hawkins. Over 100 Modifieds participated over the course of the three day event.

In all, the three-day DIRTcar event featured 20 sets of Heat Races, 11 Preliminary Features and 10 A-Features. Saturday night winners, Bobby Pierce and Brian Ruhlman, both earned $5,000 for their triumphs.
