Change of Pace Greets Rick Eckert for the 2019 Racing Season
(January 31, 2019) Rick Eckert is usually putting the finishing touches on his immaculate racecars this time of year in preparation to head south to Georgia and Florida to take part in "Speedweeks." Unfortunately, that will not be the case for the Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer in 2019, as he officially announced today that he will not be following the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series tour on a full-time basis this year. After car owner Paul Crowl sold most of the equipment following last year's season finale at the Dirt Track at Charlotte and revealed that he would not return as team owner, Rick set out this off-season to secure either a high-profile ride or enough funding to operate his own race team on a national level.

Several options popped up and disappeared through the winter months, but nothing has materialized that will allow Rick to be a regular on the WOOLMS tour, of which he has been a part of and has not missed a race since its reincarnation in 2004. The York, Pennsylvania ace will be racing in 2019; however, as he plans to operate Rick Eckert Racing at a mostly regional level. Rick is currently seeking primary and associate marketing partners for his self-owned ride, which will either be #0 or #24 - harkening back to old car numbers that he has raced in the past. Anyone interested in supporting the newly-formed team can email Rick directly at Rae024@aol.com. | full press release
