TANNER ENGLISH STREAKS
TO SHOW-ME 100 TOP TEN!
23, 2020) Tanner English and the #81e team followed the
Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series to the states of Iowa, Illinois,
and Missouri from July 13-19 for a quartet of series contests.
Last Monday night at 300 Raceway in Farley, Iowa, Tanner suffered
mechanical troubles in his B-Main, utilized a series provisional,
and later drove past sixteen competitors during the $10,000 to
win main event to salvage a steady seventh place performance in
a back-up machine. At Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois
on Friday evening, Tanner grabbed the fourth and final transfer
spot through his heat race before winding up twelfth in the final
finishing order of the $12,000 to win feature. Teammate Jason
Riggs was also in the pit area at the St. Louis-area facility,
but unfortunately missed out on transferring into the 50-lap A-Main
after finishing seventh in his heat race and fifth in his consolation
Next up was a visit to the state-of-the-art Lucas
Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri for a pair of lucrative shows.
In Saturday's annual 'Show-Me 100,' which boasted a hefty $20,000
top prize, Tanner placed fourth in his heat race prior to blasting
past six racecars during the 100-lapper to land in the ninth finishing
position. At Wheatland on Sunday in the $12,000 to win 'CMH Diamond
Nationals,' Tanner was forced to rely on a series emergency provisional
and despite getting caught up in a lap 29 incident, the young
Benton, Kentucky hotshoe salvaged a twelfth place performance
in the 50-lap affair. He currently finds himself tenth in the
latest version of the LOLMDS point standings exiting Wheatland.
