Riggs Looks To Truck Series After Collecting National NASCAR Title

Layne Riggs began his season with the goal of running 10 cherry-picked races, making memories with his family and lounging at the beach in the North Carolina sun. Riggs spent most of his time at race tracks with his dad, former NASCAR driver Scott Riggs, checking off nearly 60 races over the course of the season — including CARS Tour starts, local late model events and even a few NASCAR Truck Series races. “We went to South Boston, my local NASCAR home track, and said, ‘Hey, let’s run a couple races to just see how we do,’” Riggs said. Riggs spent several years competing full time in the CARS Tour, but taking on the NASCAR weekly series was new for him and his dad this year. As Riggs said, he stays in the books during the week and meets dad at the race track on the weekends. He’s gotten me as far as he could get me,” Riggs said. During his 10-year career in the NASCAR Cup Series, Scott Riggs collected four top-five finishes and 16 top-10 finishes. “I want to be a full-time NASCAR Cup Series driver and be a champion one day, hopefully,” Riggs said.
