MOTORSPORTS CONGRATULATES TANNER ENGLISH ON WORLD FINALS WIN!
4, 2022) Riggs Motorsports driver Tanner English put
the #81E machine in victory lane on one of the sport’s grandest
stages on Thursday night, November 3 in the annual ‘World
Finals’ at the pristine Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord,
North Carolina! Tanner clicked off the fourth quickest time in
Group A during the World of Outlaws Case Construction Late Model
Series qualifying session prior to securing an impressive heat
race triumph. After drawing the number two pill during intermission,
the Benton, Kentucky hotshoe rolled off from the outside of the
front row in the 40-lap main event.
In front of a large crowd at the 4/10-mile, Charlotte-area
speedplant and a worldwide streaming audience on DIRTVision, Tanner
wired the stellar field by leading each of the forty circuits
in the caution-free affair. At the checkered flag, Tanner had
picked up the $15,000 first place prize money ahead of a top five
that included runner-up Shane Clanton, Chris Madden, Mike Marlar,
and Hudson O’Neal. When points were tabulated following
the event, it was revealed that Tanner had locked himself into
the second spot in the final World of Outlaws Late Model Series
point standings (worth $75,000) and assured himself of the coveted
Rookie of the Year Award (worth an additional $10,000)!
“On behalf of Riggs Motorsports and my family,
we would like to congratulate Tanner English on the win last night
in Charlotte, as well as securing second in WOOLMS points and
series Rookie of the Year honors,” exclaimed team owner
Scott Riggs today. “This season has had its share of ups
and downs, but the RMS family and team stuck it out. Our results
are showing the hard work that has been put in to accomplish these
feats. We wish Tanner nothing but the best in the future!”
Tanner and Riggs Motorsports have one more crack
at reaching victory lane together on Saturday evening, November
5 at the Dirt Track at Charlotte. The ‘World Finals’
finale will boast an event-high $25,000 payday tomorrow night.
As has been previously announced, the pairing will split following
the race with Riggs Motorsports partnering with Brandon Sheppard
next season and Tanner sliding over to the Viper Motorsports ride.
