7, 2020) Tanner English and Riggs Motorsports invaded
Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tennessee on Friday night, March
6, as the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series
sanctioned a lucrative $10,000 to win program at the Volunteer
State oval. Tanner clicked off the eighth quickest time in Group
A during the qualifying session before grabbing the third transfer
spot through his stacked heat race. After rolling off from the
inside of the sixth row in the 50-lap headliner, Tanner bolted
up inside of the top ten and was looking for more before getting
caught up in a scrape with another competitor, which bent a tie-rod
on his #81e machine. The Benton, Kentucky ace retired after only
31 circuits and was forced to settle for a twenty-first place
showing at the venue dubbed as "Ducktona." Full results

RIGGS MOTORSPORTS KICKS
OFF SEASON IN GA/FL SPEEDWEEKS
10, 2020) The highly-anticipated 2020 campaign for Riggs
Motorsports got underway recently, as both Jason Riggs and new
teammate Tanner English ventured south to compete in "Speedweeks"
in Georgia and Florida from January 31-February 9. Tanner wound
up entering eight Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series specials at
three different tracks: Golden Isles Speedway near Brunswick,
Georgia, East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida, and All-Tech
Raceway in Ellisville, Florida. The young Benton, Kentucky hotshoe
transferred into four feature events with his best finish of eighth
coming in a $12,000 to win contest at East Bay Raceway Park on
Friday, February 7.
Jason was only in action at East Bay, as he entered
all six of the 'Winternationals' showdowns at the track deemed
as the "Clay by the Bay." With stacked national fields
on each occasion, Jason unfortunately missed out on the main events
at the Tampa-area oval, but was in contention for a coveted transfer
spot on most nights. The Riggs Motorsports team is now heading
back north following "Speedweeks" and tentative plans
have them racing again next in the 16th Annual 'Tuckasee Toilet
Bowl Classic' at Clarksville Speedway in Clarksville, Tennessee
on February 28-29. You can view all of the results for the #81
team by clicking on the SCHEDULES
