TANNER ENGLISH REBOUNDS
FOR GRANITE CITY TOP TEN
28, 2021) A busy week of racing action for the #81e team
heading into the Memorial Day holiday kicked off with a midweek
stop to Tri-City Speedway on Tuesday, May 25. The Castrol FloRacing
Night in America Series sanctioned the special event at the Granite
City, Illinois oval and 27 competitors were in the pit area to
vie for the $10,000 winner's check.
Tanner English unfortunately got into the wall during
qualifying and did not record an official time, but he was able
to make repairs to his XR1 Rocket Chassis in time to finish seventh
in his stacked heat race. After rolling off from the outside of
the tenth row in the 40-lap main event, Tanner rallied past eleven
racecars during the contest to salvage a steady ninth place performance
against the stellar field. Complete results from Tuesday's visit
to Tri-City Speedway can be accessed online at www.floracing.com.
Tanner and Riggs Motorsports will stay in the Land
of Lincoln over the Memorial Day holiday weekend for a pair of
MARS Racing Series duels. On Saturday, May 29, Fayette County
Speedway in Brownstown, Illinois will play host to a $5,000 to
win throwdown. A similar MARS program will then wrap up the doubleheader
on Sunday, May 30 at Spoon River Speedway in Banner, Illinois.
