ECKERT KNOWS LINCOLN; FORMER CHAMP WINS APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN DIRT LATE MODEL SPEEDWAY FINALE
Jun 5, 2013, 23:27

Bobby Beard holds off Lear and Billet to score 358 late model win

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/5/13 – Four-time track champ Rick Eckert returned to his roots to claim the 40-lap Appalachian Mountain Dirt Late Model Speedweek finale at Lincoln Speedway Wednesday night.

 

The win, Eckert’s second straight Speedweek win and 24th of his career in the Pigeon Hills, was worth $7,000, including a $2,000 bonus from Terry Grinestaff of Advanced Realty Service and Consultants as part of the Sixth Annual Chargin’ Charlie Grinestaff Memorial.

 

After time trialing second quick behind Gene Knaub, Eckert drew seventh for the feature event. Series champ Gregg Satterlee took the lead from the outside pole and led the first 36 laps before Eckert drove around him exiting turn four of lap 37.

 

“I was doing my best Brian Montieth impersonation!” exclaimed Eckert after scoring his third win in six races in the Paul Crowl #7, “I knew I had to catch Gregg by going to the top, but Jason (Covert) was there and I wasn’t quite sure what to do.”

 

His mission was simplified when Covert pulled up lame while battling Satterlee for the lead on the back stretch of lap 34.

 

Eckert reached the top four by catching polesitter David Williams following a 13th-lap restart. He ran behind Satterlee, Davey Johnson, and Covert until Covert came to a stop in turn four.

 

Eckert caught Williams at the line for the runner-up spot at the flagstand to complete lap 35, and ran down Satterlee at the line as the leaders completed lap 37. From there Eckert drove to an uncontested .81-second win over Satterlee, with ninth-starting Vic Coffey coming on late to cross third, 19th-starting and hard-charger Dan Stone fourth, and Davey Johnson fifth.

 

Competing the top ten were Dylan Yoder, Jamie Lanthrum, John Garvin, Gene Knaub, and Gary Stuhler.

 

Heats for the Super Late Models were won by Lanthrum, Eckert, and Covert, with Stone winning the B-Main.

Knaub set fast time over the 32-car Late Model field with a one-lap time of 15.997 seconds (84.391 MPH)

 

Bobby Beard ended an eventful night by winning the 20-lap “358” late model feature event.

 

Beard, who spun in his heat and came back to finish fourth, took advantage of a 12-car inversion draw to start beside Devin Frey on the front row. Beard grabbed the lead entering turn one and was never headed.

 

Kyle Lear, who won the first qualifier and drew the #12 inversion pill, came from 12th starting spot to finish second after swapping the runner-up spot several times with Chase Billet, who settled for third. Billy Wampler and Travis Mease completed the top five.

 

Heats for the “358” Late Models were won by Lear, Pat Beard, and Brad Shank, with Chris Knopp winning the consolation.

 

Lincoln swings back into action this Saturday night, June 8th, for the Annual Daryl Gohn/Glen Gohn, Sr. Memorial for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprints, Keizer Aluminum Wheels 358 Sprints and Thundercars. Gates will open at 5:30 PM with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.
