Double Down Motorsports Done for 2017 Season Following Eldora
(September 11, 2017) Following this past weekend's trip to Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio for the 47th Annual 'World 100,' Double Down Motorsports (DDM) will be taking several weekends off from any type of dirt-slinging action. Shanon Buckingham is currently en route to Florida to assist with the clean-up of Hurricane Irma and is excited to help those in need from the powerful storm. Robby Moses has been out of competition since early July, as caring for his newborn son - who was born premature - has become his number one priority. It is possible that one or both DDM drivers could race at some point later this season, but plans are currently to be done for the 2017 campaign and start gearing up for 2018. You can keep up with the latest schedules for both Shanon and Robby by pointing your Internet browser to www.DoubleDownMotorsports.net.

Buckingham Competes in 47th Annual World 100 at Eldora
(September 10, 2017) Shanon Buckingham and the #50 team rolled into the hallowed high-banks of Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from September 7-9 for the 47th edition of the 'World 100.' The three-day crown jewel spectacular started with a pair of Twin 25 programs, each of which paid $10,000 to the winner. On Thursday night, Shanon was involved in a wreck during his heat race and later advanced up to seventh in his B-Main, but was unfortunately unable to make the start in the 25-lap main event. At the "Big E" on Friday evening, Shanon placed third in his loaded heat race prior to starting and finishing the 25-lapper in the fifteenth position.

All eyes were then fixated on the 'World 100' on Saturday and a record Eldora Speedway crowd was on hand to watch one driver walk away with the hefty $50,000 paycheck. Shanon ran eighth in his stacked heat race and later wound up twenty-first in his consolation race. Unfortunately, the Morristown, Tennessee native was unable to transfer into the 100-lap extravaganza, which was won by Jonathan Davenport.

(August 21, 2017) The Double Down Motorsports (DDM) team and driver Shanon Buckingham entered two high-profile Super Late Model shootouts from August 17-20 in the states of Tennessee and Georgia. On Thursday night, the annual running of the 'Scorcher' took place at the ultra-fast Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tennessee and a $10,000 winner's check was on the line. Shanon knocked down the second fastest lap in his group during Ultimate Super Late Model Series qualifying prior to picking up an impressive win in heat race action. After starting the 50-lapper from the inside of the second row, Shanon got bounced around by a couple of competitors and eventually got into the wall, which resulted in him completing only 31 circuits and finishing in the fifteenth position.

Shanon clicked off the fifth quickest time in Group A during the qualifying session and later scored another heat race triumph.
