He has never come right out and said it. But Bobby Gerhart has intimated it on a number of ocassions.
Given the current economic climate and the place he’s currently at in his career, it would be very difficult – almost impossible – for Gerhart to win at both Pocono and Datytona in the same calendar year.
On Saturday, August, 6, Gerhart ran a disappointing 18th in the Pennsylvania ARCA 125 at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond. Gerhart, who won a record seventh ARCA Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 on February 12th at Daytona International Speedway in Florida, was hindered by a 21st starting position and a relatively short 50-lap race.
After competing in eight of ARCA’s 13 races to date, Gerhart currently resides in the 15th position in the stock-car racing series.
Another Lebanon driver, Kyle Martel also competed in the Pennsylvania ARCA 125, but was relegated to 36th finishing position by a first-lap accident. Martel had started the race 20th.
