TANNER MAKES FIRST VISIT TO PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY

(September 3, 2020) The lucrative month of August with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series wrapped up from August 27-29 in the 'Rumble by the River' at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania. The tripleheader weekend kicked off last Thursday night with a $10,000 to win program. Tanner English, in his first career visit to the 1/2-mile oval and armed with a brand-new XR1 Rocket Chassis, ran fourth in his loaded heat race before securing a victory in his B-Main. After starting the 30-lap sprint from the inside of the tenth row, Tanner was able to work his way six competitors on his way to a thirteenth place effort.

Following a rain-out of the $12,000 to win show on Friday evening, Saturday's grand finale in the Keystone State boasted a $15,000 top prize. Tanner grabbed the third and final transfer spot through his heat race and later rolled off from the inside of the seventh row in the 50-lap finale. The young Benton, Kentucky ace fought hard for a top ten showing in the contest before winding up twelfth in the final finishing order. Tanner still finds himself tenth in the latest version of the LOLMDS point standings and is on top of the Rookie of the Year chase. Complete results from the entire 'Rumble by the River' weekend can be accessed online at www.lucasdirt.com.

Tanner and the Riggs Motorsports team will return to the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series scene over the upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend in a pair of special events in the states of Kentucky and Ohio. Up first will be a visit to the legendary Ponderosa Speedway in Junction City, Kentucky on Friday, September 4 for the 16th Annual 'John Bradshaw Memorial,' which will pay out $12,000 to the winner. A similar program will then be held on Saturday, September 5 in the annual running of the 'Bob Miller Memorial River Days Rumble 50' at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio.
