TANNER MAKES FIRST VISIT
TO PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY
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. Additional information on these two races can be found by
