BOBBY PIERCE / 4WIDE - The three day late model and modified event held at The Dome at America's Center in St. Louis, MO concluded Saturday night with Oakwood IL's Bobby Pierce taking home the checkers.   The "Smooth Operator" started 7th for the late model feature on his way to the $30,000 pay day.  




"Gateway is incredible for the sport. I was good enough to make the show for saturday in both cars, I just needed to be able to get some passing in on this track.  The top needed a bit more bank, because it is kinda flat so it's hard to pass until the bottom slicks off, butit's still a great track for how tiny it is. I like the atmosphere because nothing in dirt racing is like it for late model and mod racing. It's unique to drive outside to get back into the building, and it's unique to see all the cars in the pit area becasue there are so many.   Thanks to DirtonDirt crew for the live broadcast and Cody Sommers and Jacob Nord for putting on the show., and thanks to Kevin Gundaker on building the track.
