Lanigan Scores Another Hard-Fought World of Outlaws Late Model Series Victory At Independence Motor Speedway
Defending Tour Champ Finds Himself In Battle To Finish At Hawkeye State Track For Second Consecutive Year

INDEPENDENCE, IA – Aug. 5, 2013 – Wins don’t come easy for Darrell Lanigan at Independence Motor Speedway.
But they definitely come – as evidenced by his hard-fought march to victory in Monday night’s 50-lap World of Outlaws Late Model Series A-Main that put him in the spotlight at the Hawkeye State track for the second consecutive year.
Lanigan, 43, of Union, Ky., battled forward from the seventh starting spot to take the lead from Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., on lap 37 and turned back a furious late challenge from local hero Chad Simpson of Mt. Vernon, Iowa, to secure his series-leading eighth triumph of the 2013 season.
Closely following his path to a narrow victory over Clint Smith of Senoia, Ga., in last year’s WoO LMS feature at Independence, Lanigan couldn’t take a breath until the checkered flag finally flew over his Rocket Chassis machine.
A-Main Finish: 1. Darrell Lanigan, 2. Shane Clanton, 3. Chad Simpson, 4. Gregg Satterlee, 5. Don O’Neal, 6. Dale McDowell, 7. Jason Feger, 8. Tim Fuller, 9. Brandon Sheppard, 10. Bub McCool, 11. Rick Eckert, 12. Chub Frank, 13. Eric Wells, 14. Curt Martin, 15. Clint Smith, 16. Tyler Breuning, 17. Josh Richards, 18. Bobby Pierce, 19. Tim McCreadie, 20. Chris Simpson, 21. Jason Rauen, 22. Clay Fisher, 23. Dillon Wood, 24. Kyle Bronson, 25. Morgan Bagley
