Pennsylvania Driver Continues Late-Season Surge & Snaps Lanigan's Berlin Streak with Fourth WoO LMS Victory of 2015
MARNE, Mich. - Sept. 19, 2015 - Rick Eckert put an end to Darrell Lanigan's reign over Berlin Raceway with a dominating performance in Saturday's Keyser Manufacturing Down & Dirty Weekend presented by NAPA finale.
Eckert of York, Pa., overtook Lanigan of Union, Ky., on lap 30 of Saturday's 60-lap main event and pulled away over the remaining distance to score his fourth World of Outlaws Late Model Series victory of the season. Eckert's $12,650 triumph snapped Lanigan's streak of three consecutive wins in the national tour's three previous visits to the popular pavement oval that covers its surface with dirt for its annual late-season WoO LMS action.
Starting from inside the second row, Eckert took the second spot from polesitter Dona Marcoullier of Houghton Lake, Mich., early in the race and settled in behind second-starting Lanigan while he waited for his harder-compound tire choice to go to work.
