BATAVIA, OHIO (June 15, 2020) - The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is excited to have a new young gun taking on the grueling demands of the nation’s premier dirt late model tour in 2020. This driver’s website lists his career racing goal as, “To win a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Championship.” There is no better way to get the experience to win championships than to set sights on Rookie of the Year.
Tanner English will look to take advantage of his regional success in recent years as he chases the Eibach Springs Rookie of the Year title in 2020. The 27-year-old, second generation racer is from Benton, KY and pilots the Riggs Motorsports #81E Rocket XR-1 - powered by a Pro Power Racing Engine.

“Myself and Riggs Motorsports are extremely excited to have the opportunity to run for the Eibach Springs Rookie of the Year title. To be put on the list of champions would be an honor and dream I’ve had since beginning my career. Since the formation of the Lucas Oil tour, it has been a dream of mine to be able to travel with such a professionally ran series and to be a part of the show week in and week out.” English has a slight advantage as a second-generation driver whose father ,Terry English competed on the series tour in 2007. “I know it will be a challenge but I feel I am as prepared as I can be for such a tough feat. I look forward to seeing a lot of new places and gaining some valuable experience and knowledge along the way.”
