(September 2, 2021) Fresh off completing the grueling DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour, Tanner English and Riggs Motorsports busted out a new XR1 Rocket Chassis on Saturday night, August 28 at Lake Cumberland Speedway in Burnside, Kentucky. The Valvoline Iron-Man Late Model Series presided over the annual running of the 'Harold Hardgrove Memorial' and a 25 car field converged on the Bluegrass State oval for the single-day throwdown.

Tanner promptly laid down the fastest lap overall during the qualifying session before securing a heat race triumph. After starting the $10,022 to win main event from the pole position and leading the first 36 circuits, Tanner unfortunately knocked part of his spoiler off and faded late in the 50-lap distance to finish fifth at the checkers behind only victor Michael Chilton, Josh Rice, Devin Gilpin, and Dustin Linville. Complete results from the annual 'Harold Hardgrove Memorial' can be found by clicking on www.imdirt.net.

The #81e team will jump right back into action later tonight, September 2 in the first of three MARS Racing Series battles in the Land of Lincoln. Tanner will gun for the $5,000 winner's check tonight at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois. Another $5,000 payday will then be up for grabs at the same 1/4-mile, fairgrounds facility on Friday evening, September 3. The Labor Day tripleheader weekend will then conclude with the $10,000 to win 'FALS Super Nationals' on Saturday, September 4 at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois.
