ENGLISH RALLIES TO TOP
TEN IN SILVER DOLLAR NATIONALS!
31, 2020) A hectic stretch with the Lucas Oil Late Model
Dirt Series concluded from July 23-25 in a lucrative weekend at
I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska. The three-day spectacular
for the ground-pounding Super Late Models started last Thursday
night with the 'Dirt Track Bank Go 50,' which carried a $12,000
payday. Tanner English, who was making his first trip to the Cornhusker
State venue, unfortunately got into the wall during his heat race
and was forced to break out the back-up car for the 50-lap main
event. After utilizing an emergency provisional and starting shotgun
on the field, Tanner worked his way past ten competitors to salvage
a fifteenth place effort.
On Friday evening at the 4/10-mile speedplant, two
rounds of heat races were on tap to help set the stage for Saturday's
grand finale. Tanner finished eighth in his first heat race of
the night, while he ran second in his final prelim. After grabbing
the second transfer spot in Saturday's consolation race, Tanner
rolled off from the outside of the eleventh row in the $53,000
to win 'Silver Dollar Nationals' headliner. During the course
of the 101-lap affair and despite drawing a lap 42 caution flag,
the Benton, Kentucky hotshoe was able to move up into the top
ten to eventually garner a solid tenth place performance in the
crown jewel event! Full results from all three days at I-80 Speedway
can be viewed online at www.lucasdirt.com.
Tanner still finds himself tenth in the latest version
of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point standings and is
on top of the heated Rookie of the Year chase. With the national
touring series taking this upcoming weekend off from racing action,
Tanner will also sit idle on Saturday, August 1. Jack Riggs; however,
plans to head to Highland Speedway in Highland, Illinois tomorrow
to do battle in a weekly Super Late Model event. His brother Jason
Riggs is once again slated to enjoy the weekend off from any racing
competition. You can view the upcoming schedule plans for Riggs
