Austin Pierce collects fourth win in five races.
By Mike Spieker
GRAND FORKS & JAMESTOWN, ND (July 18-19) - Austin Pierce could not have been anymore perfect in main event action this weekend. Friday night, Pierce was scheduled to start eighth on the grid and was able to avoid a six car pile up on the opening lap, which put him outside of the second row for the ensuing restart. As the race went back to green, Pierce drove his way to the front and led the opening lap. Chris Shirek, who ran in second for the majority of the feature, was able to close in on Pierce while he was caught up in lapped traffic late in the race. However, once Pierce was clear of traffic he took off and picked up his third consecutive River Cities Speedway win.
