ENGLISH FINDS PODIUM
IN PAIR OF MARS WEEKEND BATTLES!
4, 2021) Tanner English and Riggs Motorsports invaded
a pair of Land of Lincoln ovals on May 29-30 to compete for $5,000
top prizes with the MARS Racing Series. On Saturday night at Fayette
County Speedway in Brownstown, Illinois, Tanner knocked down the
third quickest lap overall during the qualifying session before
securing a victory in heat race action. The Benton, Kentucky ace
then vaulted up to second during the course of the 40-lapper to
leave the facility with a stellar runner-up effort behind only
race winner Jason Feger!
Another $5,000 winner's check was then on the line
for the #81e team on Sunday evening in a similar MARS program
at Spoon River Speedway in Banner, Illinois. Tanner clicked off
the second fastest time during qualifying prior to recording yet
another heat race triumph. He then led a few laps early in the
40-lap headliner before slipping back to third at the checkers
to trail only victor Brandon Sheppard and runner-up Ryan Unzicker.
Complete results from both Memorial Day weekend shows can be accessed
online at www.marsracingseries.com.
Tanner and the entire Riggs Motorsports team will
take the upcoming June 4-6 weekend off from any kind of racing
action. However, the team will be actively preparing their equipment
for the busy summer months ahead. Jason Riggs will enter next
week's "Double Dreams" at the hallowed Eldora Speedway
in Rossburg, Ohio, as he will vie for the $127,000 payday in the
June 9-10 show at the "Big E" and the $126,000 windfall
in the June 11-12 event. Tanner, on the other hand, is prepping
his equipment for the upcoming DIRTcar Summer Nationals, which
kick off at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana on Tuesday,
June 15. You can view the tentative upcoming schedule for Riggs
