LANIGAN LEAVES CHEROKEE WITH TOP TEN SHOWING
(March 6, 2017)
Darrell Lanigan and the #14 CBR team trekked to the renowned Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina on Sunday afternoon, March 5 for the annual running of 'March Madness.' The Southern All Stars Dirt Racing Series (SAS) presided over the single-day throwdown and 38 competitors crossed through the pit gate to vie for the $10,000 winner's check. Darrell logged the fourth quickest time in Group A during qualifying and later ran second in his stacked heat race behind only prelim winner Brandon Overton. After rolling off from the outside of the third row in the 60-lap headliner, Darrell had moved up inside of the top five before getting hung out to dry on a couple of restarts and ultimately finishing the early-season special in the eighth position.

(February 25, 2017)
The 46th running of the 'DIRTcar Nationals' wrapped up tonight at Volusia (FL) Speedway Park with another $10,000 to win World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series battle. Darrell Lanigan qualified twelfth quickest in Group A during time trials and later ran fifth in his stacked heat race. Following a triumph in his B-Main, Darrell steered past five foes during the 40-lap headliner on his way to a respectable twelfth place showing.

(February 24, 2017) Following a pair of shows that fell victim to Mother Nature, the dirt started flying again at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida tonight in the penultimate event of the 46th Annual 'DIRTcar Nationals.' A $10,000 top prize was up for grabs in the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series special. Darrell Lanigan clicked off the fifth fastest lap in Group A during qualifying, but engine woes early in his heat race dropped him to an eighth place prelim finish. Darrell was then forced to scratch from the remainder of the evening and did not compete in the 40-lap feature, which was eventually shortened by heavy fog and won by Shane Clanton.

(February 23, 2017) Back-to-back rain-outs have stricken the annual 'DIRTcar Nationals,' as tonight's $10,000 to win World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series tilt at Volusia Speedway Park was nixed by inclement weather early in the afternoon. The event will not be rescheduled and the rain-out leaves only two races left during the 2017 version of the 'DIRTcar Nationals' at the Barberville, Florida facility.

(February 22, 2017) The 'DIRTcar Nationals' program scheduled for tonight at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida was canceled after heavy rain hit the 1/2-mile oval in the morning with more wet weather forecasted throughout the day. The evening's $10,000 to win UMP DIRTcar Series-sanctioned throwdown will not be rescheduled. Action will resume at VSP on Thursday night with the first of three consecutive evenings of World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series competition.

(February 21, 2017) The #14 CBR team, who chose to skip last night's 'DIRTcar Nationals' lid lifter, unloaded for the first time at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida tonight for another UMP DIRTcar Series battle, which paid $7,000 to the winner. Darrell Lanigan posted the third fastest lap in his group during time trials and later ran second in his stacked heat race. After starting the 30-lap feature event from the outside of the fourth row, Darrell steered his iRacing.com-sponsored mount past four competitors on his way to a strong fourth place showing behind only race winner Brandon Sheppard, Shane Clanton, and Brian Shirley!

LANIGAN CLIMBS TO TWELFTH AT OCALA; NINTH IN POINTS
(February 19, 2017)
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series portion of "Speedweeks 2017" concluded tonight with a $10,000 to win affair at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida. The annual running of the 'Bubba Army Winter Nationals' drew a stellar 44 car field to the 3/8-mile, D-shaped venue. Darrell Lanigan qualified seventeenth fastest in Group A during time trials and later ran tenth in his loaded heat race. The Union, Kentucky star then utilized a series provisional to start at the back of the 50-lap headliner and promptly pointed his #14 Club 29 racecar towards the front. Darrell was able to drive up to the twelfth finishing position and now sits ninth in the latest version of the LOLMDS point standings exiting the "Sunshine State."

WINTERNATIONALS NIGHTLY RESULTS FROM EAST BAY
(February 18, 2017)
Tonight's Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned 'Winternationals' finale at East Bay (FL) Raceway Park, which was scheduled to pay $12,000 to win, has been washed out and will not be rescheduled.

(February 17, 2017) The penultimate event of the 'Winternationals' took place earlier this evening at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida. The points race for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series paid $10,000 to the winner and drew a stout 42 car field. Darrell Lanigan posted the fourth fastest lap in Group A during time trials and later scored an impressive victory in heat race action. After starting the 50-lapper from the inside of the second row, Darrell was running inside of the top five before suffering power steering problems shortly before the halfway mark in the main event. The "Bluegrass Bandit" wound up retiring to the pit area and was forced to settle for a disappointing twenty-second place effort.

(February 16, 2017) Another non-point Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event was held tonight at East Bay (FL) Raceway Park and a $7,000 winner's check was up for grabs. Darrell Lanigan - who was making his first 2017 start during the 'Winternationals' at the "Clay by the Bay" - qualified eleventh quickest in Group B during the time trial session prior to advancing to grab the third transfer spot through his loaded heat race. The Union, Kentucky superstar then rolled off from the outside of the fifth row and was storming to the front of the field in the 45-lapper before a tangle caused front end damage to his #14 mount. Darrell then returned to the racetrack at the tail of the field, but was able to climb back inside of the top ten to salvage a steady eighth place performance.

(February 15, 2017) Tonight's $7,000 to win Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series battle at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida has succumbed to Mother Nature and will not be rescheduled. Heavy afternoon rains deluged the Tampa-area and the track was not able to be worked into shape to host racing action this evening. After taking the first two non-points races of the 'Winternationals' off, Darrell Lanigan was slated to make his 2017 East Bay debut tonight before the rains hit...

After utilizing a series provisional to gain access into the 60-lapper, Darrell was able to move up to finish eighteenth in the final rundown.

(February 10, 2017) Clint Bowyer Racing (CBR) lifted the lid to their 2017 campaign tonight in round one of the annual 'Super Bowl of Racing' at Golden Isles Speedway near Brunswick, Georgia.

Our guys have worked hard this winter and hopefully Victory Lane is right around the corner."

"We are excited to sponsor Clint Bowyer Racing and Darrell Lanigan for the 2017 season," said Tony Gardner, President of iRacing.com.  "Not only are we sponsoring the car, but it is the actual dirt late model that we modeled for iRacing.com.  It was great working with them to laser scan the car, gather physics data and actually work with the team to build the simulated version of the car."

The world's premier racing game, iRacing, currently offers oval and road racing including NASCAR, IndyCar and sports cars and will be releasing its new dirt racing feature in the coming weeks.  Through iRacing's partnership with CBR, iRacers will soon be able to experience the next best thing to sitting in a real dirt late model.
