Latest Boom Briggs News
About Boom BriggsWidely known for his success in the Northeastern Late Model circuits, Bear Lake, PA-native Rick “Boom” Briggs grew up alongside cousin and Dirt Late Model hall-of-famer Chub Frank, who’s father founded and previously operated the Stateline and Eriez speedways. Boom ran his own operation in through the mid-1990s before getting married and ceasing operations shortly after. But his love for the sport drew him back in, soon joining back up with Chub on his road crew as they chased the Series’ rebirth tour in 2004.
Near the end of the 2005 season, Boom took over the driving duties of his father Rick’s operation after a health scare. Since then, Boom followed in his father’s and Chub’s footsteps racing locally, until deciding to give the national tour a try for the first time in 2014. Two 11ths and a 14th-place finish in the 2014, 2015 and 2016 points championships rendered Boom’s traveling tank dry, as he returned to the local circuit for 2017 and 2018.
2019 marked Boom’s return to the full-time World of Outlaws roster for the first time since 2016, where he posted a solid 8th-place result in the final points standings.
In 2020, Boom continues his stint as an Outlaw behind the wheel of a brand-new Barry Wright ICON chassis, once again hitting the road alongside traveling buddy and fellow Outlaw Darrell Lanigan.
