CHAMPAIGN (WCIA) -- With only five races left, Oakwood native Bobby Pierce is in control of the UMP Summer Nationals series.
Pierce won two races this week to increase his lead. One of the two was at the Harold & Review 100 at the Macon Speedway on Thursday.
"Oh man, it's wonderful especially after, I wouldn't say it's a drought but last year after winning 11 of these races it's been a couple weeks since I won another race so tonight feels awesome," Pierce said. "There's a lot of publicity at this race just because of the history and all the fans that come here. A lot of people from Illinois that, like I said earlier, really like to come watch us race and I guess it just gives us momentum headed into the next couple races. It's a good points night for us so hopefully we can just seal the deal."
