Tanner English Eyes Jackson 100 Weekend at Brownstown Speedway

(NORRIS CITY, ILLINOIS) The #81e team was busy from September 15-19 in the states of Illinois and Nebraska, as a total of four special events were held at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois and I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska. Things started last Tuesday night at FALS in a DIRTcar Racing showdown dubbed as 'One for the Road,' which paid out $15,000 to the winner. Tanner English stopped the clock sixth fastest in Group B during the qualifying session before finishing second in his heat race. Despite getting caught up in a tangle during the 50-lap feature event, Tanner was still able to bring home a steady eleventh place performance.

Next up was a trip west to I-80 Speedway for a trio of Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series programs that made up the 'I-80 Nationals.' On Thursday in the Cornhusker State, Tanner unfortunately missed out on the $7,000 to win main event after running eighth in his heat race and sixth in his B-Main. Another $7,000 top prize was on the line on Friday, as Tanner placed seventh in his heat race, second in his B-Main, and eleventh in the 30-lapper. In the $30,000 to win 'I-80 Nationals' finale on Saturday evening, the young Benton, Kentucky wheelman utilized a series provisional to gain access into the 80-lap affair and eventually salvaged a sixteenth place effort in the mega-event.
