Lanigan Strong Early
in Indiana Icebreaker; Runs into Trouble Late
17, 2019) Darrell Lanigan and the #29 DLR team
were back in Super Late Model competition on Saturday night, March
16 at the legendary Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana.
The annual running of the 'Indiana Icebreaker' was on tap at the
1/4-mile fairgrounds facility and 34 entrants signed into the pit
area to vie for the lucrative $12,000 winner's check. Darrell started
his evening by posting the third fastest lap in Group A during Lucas
Oil Late Model Dirt Series qualifying before grabbing the fourth
and final transfer spot through his heat race.
After rolling off from the inside of the seventh row
in the 50-lap headliner, Darrell had blasted all the way up to sixth
in the running order and was in the eighth spot with only two laps
remaining. Unfortunately, the Union, Kentucky star was caught up
in an incident and brought out the caution flag, which dropped him
to a disappointing twenty-first place showing. Full results from
