Jason Riggs Battles LOLMDS Foes in Big Doubleheader
(May 3, 2015)
Jason Riggs and his #81jr team entered a huge doubleheader weekend with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series on May 1-2 in the states of Illinois and Kentucky. On Friday night at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois, a $10,000 top prize was on the line. Jason finished eighth in his loaded heat race and seventh in his B-Main, which unfortunately kept him out of the night's 50-lap headliner.

The action quickly moved to Paducah International Raceway in Paducah, Kentucky on Saturday evening for another $10,000 to win special. Jason clicked off the tenth fastest lap in Group B during the qualifying session and later grabbed the fourth and final transfer spot through his heat race. After rolling off from the outside of the eighth row in the 50-lapper, the Harrisburg, Illinois native wound up posting a fifteenth place finish at PIR.

Riggs Motorsports Posts Pair of Podium Efforts!
(April 19, 2015)
The Riggs Motorsports team was out in full force over the April 17-18 weekend, as Brian Shirley stayed in his home state of Illinois and Jason Riggs ventured to the Commonwealth of Kentucky for his season opener. Jason invaded Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway in Calvert City, Kentucky for a $1,000 to win weekly Super Late Model program. The Harrisburg, Illinois driver set Fast Time during qualifying and won his heat race during preliminary action. Unfortunately, Jason was spun by eventual winner Charles LaPlant after he had just taken the lead early in the 20-lapper, but he was able to rebound from the tail to salvage a third place effort in his season lid lifter.

Brian took his #3s Rocket machine to Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois for the annual running of the 'Illini 100,' which was once again sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Late Model Series. On Friday night in the $6,000 to win weekend opener, Brian won his heat race prior to leading laps 1-4 and 15-17 of the 25-lap feature event. The Chatham, Illinois ace eventually wound up an impressive runner-up behind only race winner Scott Bloomquist.

At the 1/4-mile bullring on Saturday evening, a whopping $15,000 top prize was on the line in the 'Illini 100' finale. Brian narrowly missed out on transferring into the 75-lap headliner after running sixth in his loaded heat race and fourth in his B-Main.
