WEST LIBERTY, Ia. - Aug. 10. Twenty year racing veteran Denny Eckrich started on the pole after winning the qualifying dash, survived a couple of late
race restarts, and went on to capture the I-Wireless, West Liberty State Bank-sponsored "Tornado Tuesday" $10,000 Late Model win here at the West Liberty Raceway Tuesday night.

The win for Eckrich was his first since winning on opening night in 2009. Eckrich finished second in his heat and qualified seventh overall out of the 33 entrants signed in to do battle.
