Pierson Leaves Little Doubt with Dominant Devil’s Bowl Win

IMG_0188WEST HAVEN, VT – Adam Pierson made it look easy at Devil’s Bowl Speedway as he drove to a dominant victory in the Autosaver Ford/Springfield Buick-GMC “Vermont Freedom & Unity 100” on Saturday, November 1.

Pierson entered the race trailing Vince Quenneville, Jr. by eight points – the equivalent of four positions on the track – for the title. Pierson wasted little time, moving into the lead by lap 9 and stretching out to as much as a half-lap lead. Quenneville made a steady march into the top five in the middle stages of the race and appeared to have kept Pierson close enough to have sealed the championship, but his car made hard contact with the backstretch barrier at lap 66 that knocked him out of the race.
