TANNER ENGLISH LANDS
ON PODIUM TWICE AT LASALLE SPEEDWAY!
12, 2021) The Riggs Motorsports team and driver Tanner
English ventured north to LaSalle Speedway in LaSalle, Illinois
on May 7-8 for a pair of MARS Racing Series shootouts that made
up the annual 'Thaw Brawl' weekend. On Friday night in the $3,000
to win opener, Tanner earned Fast Time honors in qualifying with
his quick lap of 12.646 seconds around the 1/4-mile oval before
securing a victory in heat race action. After starting the 30-lapper
from the pole position and leading the first couple of circuits,
Tanner settled for a strong third place podium effort behind only
race winner Ryan Unzicker and runner-up Brian Shirley. (Todd
At LaSalle on Saturday evening, a whopping $12,000
payday was on the line for the MARS competitors in the 'Thaw Brawl'
finale. Tanner once again picked up a victory in his heat race
to earn the pole position for the 60-lap headliner. The Benton,
Kentucky ace then battled hard for the lead early in the contest
before slipping to third, as rain saturated the racing surface
through much of the distance. At the checkers, Tanner was awarded
another third place performance behind only victor Garrett Alberson
and runner-up Brian Shirley. Complete results from the 'Thaw Brawl'
doubleheader can be accessed online at www.marsracingseries.com.
The #81e team will jump right back into competition
later tonight, May 12 at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana.
The Castrol FloRacing Night in America Series will roll into the
1/4-mile fairgrounds facility to preside over a $10,000 to win
midweek special. From there, Tanner will set his sights on Farmer
City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois and Fairbury Speedway in
Fairbury, Illinois over the upcoming May 14-15 weekend. The MARS
Racing Series will sanction all of the action in the Land of Lincoln
and a $10,000 top prize will be up for grabs on Friday at Farmer
City, while Saturday's showdown at FALS boasts a $15,000 windfall.
