Dillard’s Trouble, Spells Glory For English

LEWISTOWN, Ill. — Tanner English was in the right place at the right time to win Thursday night’s DIRTcar Summer Nationals feature at Spoon River Speedway. This handed the lead over to English, who encountered a fierce challenge to his outside from a high-flying Bobby Pierce in the final two laps, but held on for his third career Summer Nationals victory. “I thought [Dillard] thought the race was over, I didn’t really know,” English recalled. English celebrated in Summer Nationals Victory Lane for the first time since his win at Tri-City Speedway last year after a charge from 10th on the starting grid. “I had to go where they weren’t; they were kinda all over the place,” English said of his late passes for position.
