LANIGAN IN ACTION IN LONG DREAM
WEEKEND AT ELDORA...
9, 2013) Darrell Lanigan and his #29 DLR team tackled
the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on June 6-8 for
the 19th Annual 'Dirt Late Model Dream.' The expanded format
kicked off on Thursday and Friday at the "Big E" with
Twin 25s. On Thursday night, Darrell won his heat race in preliminary
action and later led the first two laps of the $2,500 to win
feature event before finishing third in the 25-lapper behind
only winner Josh Richards and runner-up Steve Francis. At the
hallowed high-banks on Friday evening, Darrell ran sixth in
his heat race and second in his B-Main before an early wreck
in the $5,000 to win main event relegated the Union, Kentucky
star to a disappointing twenty-fourth place effort.
Things really heated up at the 1/2-mile facility on Saturday,
as a whopping $100,000 top prize was on the line in the annual
running of the 'Dirt Late Model Dream.' Darrell was battling
for the lead early in his heat race before a grinding wreck
in turn four wiped out his #29 Rocket Chassis. The incident
caused Darrell to finish eleventh in his heat race and therefore
kept him out of the night's 100-lap crown jewel extravaganza.
