(NORRIS CITY, ILLINOIS) Following a successful 2020 season on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series trail, which saw driver Tanner English pick up the coveted Rookie of the Year honors and a ninth place finish in the final point tally, Riggs Motorsports will return to action with the national touring series to start their 2021 campaign! Tanner will be in competition later tonight and on Saturday, January 23 at All-Tech Raceway in Ellisville, Florida. The pair of LOLMDS lid lifters, which will shell out a $12,000 and $15,000 top prize respectively, will be broadcast LIVE on both the MAVTV Motorsports Network and MAVTVplus.com.
The dirt-slinging action will then shift south to East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida for the 45th edition of the ‘Winternationals.’ Teammate Jason Riggs will join English at the track deemed as the “Clay by the Bay” for six straight nights of thrilling competition from January 25-30. Nearly $200,000 in prize money will be up for grabs at the Tampa-area oval throughout the week.
The final Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series races of “Speedweeks 2021” will then be held on February 1-2 at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida. A pair of throwdowns will be held at the 3/8-mile, D-shaped facility and both Jason and Tanner are slated to compete for the $10,000 winner’s check on that Monday and Tuesday at BRP. Be sure to watch and follow during all ten events with the LOLMDS in the Sunshine State LIVE on MAVTVplus.com.
Before Riggs Motorsports heads back north to colder weather, they plan on making one last stop to North Florida Speedway in Lake City, Florida on February 5-6. The Valvoline Iron-Man Late Model Series will preside over the two shows at the northern Florida venue and once again, both Jason and Tanner plan to chase the $8,000 and the $10,000 paydays.
