SWANSBORO, NC – Layne Riggs led wire-to-wire to score the victory in an otherwise exhilarating Solid Rock Carriers 150 at Carteret County Speedway on Saturday night.

Riggs’ victory came two weeks after a heartbreaking runner-up victory in the CARS Response Energy Late Model Stock Tour race. In that race, Riggs had to race his way from the rear of the field to second after being spun around from the lead. This weekend, nobody would get close enough to take the $15,000 win away from Riggs.

“I just gave it my all,” Riggs said. “I’ve got to thank everybody on this team this weekend. They fought. We’re trying to get used to this carburetor and having less horsepower. The F50 tires being harder, we slowed down almost a half second. It was just really hard to get used to those, how to wear the tire and, thanks to everyone who helped me out to get me here. People might not think it but we’re not the highest budget team here. This is a free racecar that was given to us. We just make the best with what we’ve got and we pulled it off tonight.”

Riggs said the $15,000 paycheck he got for winning was the most he has ever got for winning a race and he would “spend it wisely”.

Mini Tyrrell finished in the runner-up position for the second time at Carteret County Speedway in 2018. Tyrrell had hoped to win, but battled adversity all weekend and took the runner up position in stride.

“I couldn’t thank everybody enough,” Tyrrell commented. “It’s just incredible. The opportunity to do this, everybody here. We battled motor issues for one and a half days. All day yesterday, didn’t get a single lap of practice. My crew and everybody on this crew did everything they could. They put their blood, sweat and tears to get me on the track. Started 11th, not have any laps and come up to second is truly incredible.”

Michael Tilley raced his way through the field to finish in third while Brandon Clements and Clay Jones rounded out the top-five.

The caution flag flew a handful of times for sporadic incidents throughout the race, with the final caution flying with five laps to go. Riggs was able to survive a late race challenge from Tyrrell for the win.

Mason Diaz scored the victory in the Legends division, his first at Carteret County Speedway. Diaz led wire-to-wire in the Legends division feature to pick up the win.

“Dillon Spain Motorsports worked all weekend on this to give me a fast racecar to hop in,” Diaz stated. “It was fun out there. Late race restart definitely made a game changer for the whole entire race. I enjoy racing with these guys. We keep running Legends and it’s fun to hop back in these cars.”

Brian Sullivan finished in second while Zack Brown finished in third.

Michael Rouse won in the Mini-Stock feature while Chase Singletary scored the Jr. Mini Cup win and Justin Hall won in the Mini Cup class.

The next race at Carteret County Speedway will be held on Saturday, July 28th.
