ENGLISH REMAINS CONSISTENT
ON LUCAS TOUR AT FLORENCE
13, 2020) The Riggs Motorsports team made their way to
Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky on July 10-11 for two more
pivotal Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point races. Despite
getting rained-out at the Cincinnati-area speedplant on Saturday
evening, Friday's $12,000 to win 'Summer Sizzler Nationals' opener
went off without a hitch. Tanner English grabbed the fourth and
final transfer spot through his loaded heat race and later rolled
off from the outside of the seventh row in the 50-lap main event.
Tanner was then able to drive past a handful of competitors during
the headliner to once again land in the top ten - in the ninth
Jack Riggs was also in competition over the weekend,
as his #81j team invaded Clarksville Speedway in Clarksville,
Tennessee on Saturday night for a weekly Super Late Model show.
Jack timed in fifth quickest overall during the qualifying session
and later finished fourth in both his heat race and the feature
event. At the checkers in the A-Main, Jack trailed only $1,200
race winner Richard Frost, Don Young, and Gwynn Newby. Full results
from both facilities can be accessed online at www.lucasdirt.com
Tanner English and his #81e team have a hectic week
coming up with the ultra-competitive Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt
Series, which kicks off later tonight, July 13 at 300 Raceway
in Farley, Iowa ($10,000 to win). From there, Tanner will head
to Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois ($12,000 to win)
on Friday and the state-of-the-art Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland,
Missouri on Saturday ($20,000 to win) and Sunday ($12,000 to win).
The young Benton, Kentucky ace comes into the four-race stretch
tenth in the latest version of the LOLMDS point standings and
is still on top of the Rookie of the Year chase!
While Jack Riggs is slated to enjoy the upcoming
July 17-18 weekend off from racing action, his brother Jason Riggs
will return to competition in a pair of races in the states of
Illinois and Tennessee. Jason will join Tanner on Friday evening
at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois to vie for the
$12,000 top prize in the 'NAPA Know How 50.' He will then take
his #81 machine to Clarksville Speedway in Clarksville, Tennessee
on Saturday night for a weekly Super Late Model program, which
once again pays $1,200 to the victor. You can always view the
