UNION, Ky. – Darrell Lanigan has announced plans to return to his self-owned No. 29 dirt late model next season.

Lanigan, who spent three years driving Clint Bowyer Racing’s No. 14, was released earlier this week after the team signed former Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series champion Josh Richards for 2019.

The 48-year-old driver is a three-time World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series champion and he won all of those championships while driving his own No. 29.

In a post on his website, Lanigan confirmed he’ll also begin building his Club 29 Race Cars separately from Black Diamond Chassis in his race shop in Union, Ky. The No. 29 entry will use Cornett engines.

Lanigan has not announced a schedule for next year, but is considering chasing the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series championship if everything comes together.
