Mercer, PA (September 25, 2011): Lonnie Riggs and Rusty Moore ended the season at Mercer Raceway Park on the highest notes possible. For Riggs, it was his third win in the Little Guy Nationals race for the Approved Toilet Rentals 358 Modifieds. For Moore, it was a relief to win his record-breaking fourteenth race of the season in the Precise Racing Products Stock Cars. Paul Weaver won the ti22 Performance Outlaw Sprint Warrior main, while the remaining full-fendered wins went to Dazve Ferringer (Precise Racing Products Stock Cars Non-Qualifiers Feature), Pete Blazczak (Big Dog R/C Center Mini Stocks), and Jace Ferringer (Strictly Stocks).
After months of frustrating mechanical breakdows, Lonnie Riggs finally seemed to have solved the problem at the right time. He finished second in the preliminary night of the Little Guy Nationals and backed it up with his third win in the final event of the year for the Approved Toilet Rentals 358 Modifieds.
Riggs explained that his problems were all caused by a “ten cent part” and that his team figured out what it was about three weeks ago. That put him in a position to end the year on a high note once again. “Yeah, if you are going to have one or two wins, I’d like to get them later in the year, then you have something to go for next year.”
