BRAINERD, MN – July 14, 2012 –
Darrell Lanigan rolled to victory in his Weld Racing wheel equipped Dirt Late Model during Saturday night’s Dondelinger Automotive Company 50 at North Central Speedway to set a new single-season win of 10 races on the national circuit and took home $10,650.00.
Lanigan, 42, of Union, Ky., overtook Rick Eckert of York, Pa., for the lead on lap 14 and never looked back. He also extended his commanding points lead to 152 points.
“It’s awesome to set the record,” said Lanigan, whose 36th career WoO LMS victory moved him within two of matching Richards for the most wins on the tour since 2004. “We’re not satisfied, though. We want to get as many (wins) as we can. We go to every race to try to win it, so we’ll see what we can come up with (the remainder of the season).”
