In the UMP Late Model A-Feature, Bobby Pierce started fourth, but quickly took the lead from Eddie Carrier Jr., eight laps in and never looked back en route to victory in the 40-lap race. Pierce, from Oakwood, Illinois, beat Carrier, from Salt Rock, West Virginia, by 2.3 seconds.

“It’s awesome,” Pierce said. “I’m out of breath. I loved the track. It was fast and rough. I rode the cushion a little bit. It was tricky, but we got the win.”

Pierce finished second in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in July and second in the 45th World 100 in September.

Eldora favorite Jeep VanWormer was second on lap 15, but hit the turn two wall and was done for the day.

Devin Moran was second, while Carrier Jr., was third. Josh Rice and Jon Henry rounded out the top-five.

Matt Westfall, from Pleasant Hill, Ohio finished ninth, but captured the Eldora Late Model title. He won the Eldora Modified title in 2014.

“It’s pretty cool to win it,” Westfall said. “Especially after winning the Modified deal last year. It’s nice to be able to come out this year and win this.”

Next Saturday, the final race of the 2015 schedule takes place at Eldora. The UNOH Sprintacular will feature the winged All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars, non-winged BOSS (Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series) and the winged NRA (National Racing Alliance) Sprint Invaders.
