ENGLISH WIRES SPRING
NATIONALS FIELD TO COLLECT $10,053 PAYDAY!
7, 2021) Tanner English racked up his fifth feature
win of the 2021 campaign on Saturday evening, May 1 at Clarksville
Speedway in Clarksville, Tennessee! The Schaeffer's Oil Spring
Nationals Series made their first-ever stop to the Volunteer State
oval and Tanner promptly laid down the quickest lap in Group A
during qualifying before winning his heat race. After rolling
off from the pole position in the 53-lap headliner, Tanner led
each and every circuit of the contest en route to bagging the
$10,053 payday ahead of Jadon Frame, Donald McIntosh, Dale McDowell,
and David Seibers!
A night earlier on Friday, April 30 at Ponderosa
Speedway in Junction City, Kentucky, the Riggs Motorsports team
vied for the $12,000 top prize in the annual 'John Bradshaw Memorial.'
Tanner placed third in his loaded heat race and later started
the 50-lap Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series feature from the inside
of the fourth row. The Benton, Kentucky ace unfortunately slipped
out of the top ten during the course of the A-Main and was eventually
paid for a thirteenth place showing. Complete results from both
weekend specials can be accessed online at www.lucasdirt.com
"I've run a lot of laps at this place,"
said English in victory lane following the Clarksville win, "so
I know just about every condition and where to go when it's a
certain way, and everything like that, qualifying and all the
way through (the program). I grew up here and it's a pretty cool
place to come back to and see all these good fans. I know everybody
that supports me here and I appreciate it a ton. I've also gotta
thank Riggs Motorsports. They've done a lot for me and I couldn't
be standing here without them, for sure!"
Fresh off the big five-figure triumph, Tanner and
his #81e team have ventured north to LaSalle Speedway in LaSalle,
Illinois for this weekend's annual 'Thaw Brawl.' Action will get
underway in the MARS Racing Series doubleheader later tonight,
as a pair of $3,000 to win preliminary features will take place
at the 1/4-mile oval. Tanner will then chase his first career
'Thaw Brawl' title on Saturday, May 8. A full show headlined by
a 60-lap main event is in store for Saturday, as he guns for the
$12,000 winner's check. Additional information on the MARS lid
