RIGGS MOTORSPORTS OUT
IN FULL FORCE; JASON RIGGS GETS TOP FIVE!
(June 25, 2020) For the first time
in 2020, all three Riggs Motorsports drivers were in racing competition
from June 18-20 and Jason Riggs led the charge with his first
top five finish of the 2020 season! At Tri-City Speedway in Granite
City, Illinois on Friday night, Jason placed third in his heat
race and later moved up one position to nab an impressive fourth
place effort in the $1,200 to win weekly feature event behind
only victor Daryn Klein, Gordy Gundaker, and Michael Kloos. His
brother Jack Riggs then made his Super Late Model debut on Saturday
evening in another weekly program at Clarksville Speedway in Clarksville,
Tennessee. Jack clicked off the seventh quickest time overall
during qualifying before being paid for an eighth place performance
in his first A-Main.
Tanner English followed the Lucas Oil Late Model
Dirt Series south to Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi
from June 18-20 for the annual running of the 'Clash at the Mag.'
Tanner unfortunately just missed out on transferring into the
$5,000 to win preliminary features on Thursday and Friday, but
turned up the wick in a big way on Saturday at the Magnolia State
venue. After utilizing a series provisional to earn the rights
to the outside of the twelfth row in the 100-lap headliner, the
Benton, Kentucky ace was able to blast past fifteen competitors
during the extra-distance affair, which boasted a $15,000 winner's
Tanner was officially awarded a hard-fought ninth
place finish in the mega-event finale and still sits tenth in
the latest version of the heated LOLMDS point standings. He also
leads the coveted Rookie of the Year chase on the national touring
series by 225 markers over Tyler Bruening! Full results from these
shows can be accessed online at www.tricityspeedway.net,
In 2020, the Eibach Springs Rookie of the Year will
receive the following at the year-end series banquet, along with
$100 cash per race: a check for $10,000, $500 product certificate

Tanner and his #81e machine will be back on the
Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series grind over the June 26-27 weekend
in the states of Tennessee and Alabama. On Friday night, 411 Motor
Speedway in Seymour, Tennessee will play host to a $12,000 to
win showdown. A similar one-day program will then take place on
Saturday evening at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Alabama.
Jason Riggs is slated to return to Tri-City Speedway in Granite
