SECOND WEEK RECAP: ENGLISH
LOGS PAIR OF TOP TENS IN RAIN-SOAKED WEEK
30, 2021) Riggs Motorsports and driver Tanner English
will return to the DIRTcar Summer Nationals grind later tonight,
June 30 in the Badger State. The Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver
Dam, Wisconsin will greet the cars and stars of the "Hell
Tour" this evening, as a $5,000 top prize will be up for
grabs. From there, the #81e team will travel through the states
of Iowa and Illinois during the remainder of the week to compete
in a total of five series events from June 30-July 4.
Following Beaver Dam, Tanner will tackle Davenport
Speedway in Davenport, Iowa on Thursday, Dirt Oval at Route 66
in Joliet, Illinois on Friday, Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown,
Illinois on Saturday, and Lincoln Speedway in Lincoln, Illinois
on Sunday. A $5,000 winner's check will also be on the line at
Davenport and Lincoln, while the shows at Joliet and Fayette County
will boast a $10,000 payday. Tanner comes into the week second
in the latest version of the DIRTcar Summer Nationals point standings,
as he trails leader Bobby Pierce by only 31 markers.
The team is coming off a rain-soaked week in which
only two events escaped the wrath of Mother Nature. At LaSalle
Speedway in LaSalle, Illinois last Wednesday, June 23, a 35 car
field assembled at the 1/4-mile oval to do battle for a $5,000
paycheck. Tanner laid down the sixth quickest lap in Group B during
the qualifying session before placing third in his stacked heat
race. After starting the 40-lap main event from the outside of
the sixth row, Tanner was able to steer past five competitors
during the caution-free affair to leave LaSalle with a solid seventh
On Friday, June 25 in a $10,000 to win "Hell
Tour" tilt at Sycamore Speedway in Maple Park, Illinois,
Tanner stopped the clock thirteenth quickest overall during qualifying
before climbing to third in his heat race. After rolling off from
the inside of the fourth row in the 40-lapper, Tanner raced hard
all over the top ten during the contest before landing in the
sixth finishing position behind only victor Brian Shirley, Bobby
Pierce, Ashton Winger, Ryan Unzicker, and Jason Feger.
The shows at Spoon River Speedway in Banner, Illinois
and Federated Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri were rained-out,
but have been rescheduled for July 7 and August 14 respectively.
The event at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Illinois was
lost on Sunday due to inclement weather and will not be rescheduled.
