BENTON, Ky. – Dirt late model racer Tanner English has announced he will be joining Riggs Motorsports, effective Monday.

The second generation driver will immediately start prepping the Riggs Motorsports XR1 Rocket Chassis for the 44th annual Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Fla., from Feb. 3-8.

English will pilot the No. 81e machine for Riggs Motorsports, while Jason Riggs will be car No. 81 and his brother, Jack Riggs, will be No. 81j. In addition, Jake Little – who is the crew chief for Jason – will also jump behind the wheel for a select few appearances.

“I am excited to be partnering up with Scott and Jason Riggs with Riggs Motorsports,” English said in a press release on his website. “This will be a big change for me, as I will be able to work at the shop and race full time. It’s a brand new experience, as I usually have very minimal time after work to prepare for upcoming events.

“It will be great to have the opportunity to focus on racing and I think we will make a really good team,” English said. “I want to thank Scott and Jason for believing in me and giving me this opportunity to further my racing career. They are a great racing family with a very similar mindset to my own and I am looking forward to a successful 2020 season.”

Following East Bay’s annual Winternationals, the team will compete in a pick and choose type of schedule throughout the year – one that makes sense geographically and financially. The team plans toe enter most of the DIRTcar Summer Nationals events across the Midwest in June and July, meaning a run at the series title isn’t out of the question.

“Riggs Motorsports is very excited to add Tanner English to our team,” said team owner Scott Riggs, who has also fielded cars in the past for Brian Shirley, Scott James, Kevin Cole and others. “I have personally watched Tanner race since he was eleven years old. Tanner is a very talented racecar driver and will put in the work needed to be successful, but more important than racing – he is a good person and does things the right way. Riggs Motorsports has a big year planned starting at East Bay, as Tanner will drive alongside Jason Riggs and our newest racer – 17-year-old Jack Riggs.”

Wright Confirms Hardwick & Long For IMSA Return

Wright Confirms Hardwick & Long For IMSA Return

BATAVIA, Ohio – Wright Motorsports has announced its to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in the GT Daytona class.

Ryan Hardwick and Porsche Factory driver Patrick Long will be the full season drivers of the No. 16 Porsche 911 GT3 R, sponsored by sports nutrition company 1st Phorm and motorcycle and powersports retailer Mountain Motorsports.

Fresh off his rookie season in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, Hardwick return to the GT Daytona class in the IMSA WeatherTech Championship. Announced in October, the 2018 Super Trofeo and SRO America GT Cup champion will bring 1st Phorm and Mountain Motorsports to the Wright program and the No. 16 Porsche 911 GT3 R.

“I am literally counting down the days until the green flag waves at the Rolex 24 in Daytona,” said Hardwick. “I couldn’t be more excited about how things came together during the off season with Wright Motorsports and Porsche Motorsport North America. This team is truly where I belong. I immediately felt comfortable and right at home with these guys. I’m also super stoked to have the opportunity to share the driver seat this season with Patrick Long. As a long time Porsche enthusiast, I’ve been a fan and watched Pat compete for years. Getting the chance to actually race alongside and learn directly from him, is a real honor. Daytona can’t come soon enough. I’m ready to get after it.”

Returning to Wright Motorsports for another year of competition, Long will continue to race with the fan favorite Porsche team. The three-time American Le Mans Series GT champion also holds three Pirelli World Challenge titles, and currently has an impressive 27 wins in IMSA, placing him in the top 25 of more than 1,000 drivers to earn at least one victory in the series over the years.

“We know the model of consistency gets you in championship contention, but sheer performance and victories are likely going to have the final say,” said Long. “I revel the chance to mount a challenge for a title, but I have no doubt we are in the most competitive era of GT racing this country has ever seen. I really like where we ended up in 2018 with Wright Motorsports in IMSA with our GTD effort. It’s great to get back into the groove and the plan is to pick up where we left off. Ryan is a refreshing personality and he seems as driven and focused as any driver on the grid, pro or not. That’s a great combination and I like where we have been able to get as teammates in a very short span of time. I am grateful to our partners in believing in our combination of a driving pair.”

The No. 16 Porsche will feature a predominately black, blue, and grey livery, with the traditional Wright Motorsports chevron showcasing the flowing design of the 550 horsepower rear-engine machine. The distinctive 1st Phorm blue will set the car apart from the field through the duration of the twelve race season.
