Eckert Set to Steer Allen Murray's #2 in Lucrative Four-Race Weekend!
(July 9, 2019) Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Rick Eckert, of York, Pennsylvania, has unveiled plans today to enter the four Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series contests - scheduled from July 11-14 - in the Midwestern States of Illinois and Missouri. Instead of making the long trek west with his own equipment, Rick will pilot Allen Murray's #2 Rocket XR1 machine throughout the lucrative weekend. Allen, who hails from San Antonio, Texas, is a sponsor and supporter of Rick Eckert Racing through his family-owned business M&M Painting & Construction. With a light racing schedule in the Mid-Atlantic for Rick and a busy work schedule for Allen, the pair made plans recently to team up for an assault on Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois and Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri this weekend.

"My own racing schedule is pretty relaxed this month and Allen (Murray) is busy with work right now, so it is a win/win situation for both of us," exclaimed Eckert via telephone this afternoon. "Allen has top-notch equipment and he has been a great friend and supporter of myself and my race team. Hopefully, I can jump in his stuff Thursday, be quick right out of the box, and keeping working on the car throughout the weekend to get it faster and overall make his program better." | full story
