Deery Brothers: Eckrich Takes Race of Champions Before Series Loses Quad City Final

Bill Martin

E. MOLINE, Ill. - Sept. 24. While Saturday's schedule final would succumb to rain, opening night honors went to Andy Eckrich in Saturday’s Deery Brothers Summer Series "Race of Champions" at Quad City Speedway.

Eckrich started on the pole and led all 20 laps for the $800 IMCA Late Model victory, while Terry Neal held off Justin Reed for second. Reed had started ninth. Ray Guss Jr. passed eight cars to end in fourth and Tyler Bruening rounded out the top five.

The Race of Champions field was comprised of 11 drivers who won Deery features or IMCA track titles this season, plus top rookies and a pair of promoter’s provisional starters.

Guss, the defending series champion, leads Eckrich by six points heading into the Sunday show and is already qualified. One of the two will earn the 2011 tour title and the $5,000 prize that accompanies the crown.
