Tanner English Enjoys Pair of Podium Performances at Fairbury Speedway

(NORRIS CITY, ILLINOIS) The annual running of 'FALS Frenzy' was next on the racing schedule for the Riggs Motorsports team on October 7-8 at Fairbury Speedway. The MARS Racing Series sanctioned the doubleheader weekend at the downtown Fairbury, Illinois oval, which kicked off last Friday night with a $5,000 to win throwdown. Tanner English clicked off the second fastest lap in Group B during the qualifying session prior to securing a victory in his heat race. After starting the 40-lap feature event from the outside of the second row, Tanner moved up to finish third and on the podium behind only opening night victor Shannon Babb and runner-up Ryan Unzicker.

In Saturday's weekend finale, which boasted a hefty $15,000 windfall, Tanner knocked down the quickest lap in Group B during the MARS time trial session and later picked up another win in his heat race. The Benton, Kentucky ace then rolled off from the outside of the front row in the 50-lapper before bringing home another third place podium performance behind only race winner Bobby Pierce and runner-up Jason Feger!

The Riggs Motorsports team plans to sit idle over the October 14-15 weekend, but will be back in action in a big way from October 21-23 with the World of Outlaws Case Construction Late Model Series in the states of Kansas and Missouri. A trio of $10,000 top prizes will be up for grabs at Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kansas next Friday, at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas next Saturday, and at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Missouri next Sunday. Tanner comes into the triple shot second in the latest version of the WOOLMS point standings - only 98 markers behind point leader Dennis Erb, Jr. Additional information concerning these three races, which will be broadcast LIVE on DIRTVision, can be found online by visiting
