Eckrich Outduels Cooney in Caution-Free Thriller at Davenport
By Anthony Ainslie
6/4/21

After an impromptu extended break, the Hauliní with Hoker Trucking Super Late Models East Series returned to action Friday night and ended with a spectacular finish.
Fridayís first of three shows at the Davenport Speedway marked round two of the 2021 season for the East Series. A field of 28 cars made the trip out to the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds after the tourís Memorial Day weekend tripleheader was rained out.
Andy Eckrich was on the pole for the 35-lap main event. The Oxford, Iowa driver led early but had a slim lead over second place Todd Cooney. Eckrich led the first ten laps before Cooney took his first turn in command of the lead.
The duo traded the lead back and forth. While that went on, Darin Duffy, Matt Ryan, and Justin Kay went at it for the third spot. Later on in the race, point leader Jeff Aikey jumped into the battle.
Before long, the battle for the lead between Eckrich and Cooney entered lapped traffic. Both drivers had kept their race neck and neck even through the back markers.
The race went the whole distance without a caution, and at the line, Eckrich held on to win over Cooney by .365 seconds. The win marked Eckrichís second career East Series win, both of them coming at Davenport Speedway. The race was also the third consecutive caution-free feature in four races.
Cooney would have to settle for second, and Darin Duffy recorded his career best finish with the series with his third-place finish. Defending track champion Justin Kay finished fourth, and Matt Ryan rounded out the top five.
The Hauliní with Hoker Trucking East Series will finish out its weekend on Saturday with the tourís debut at the 34 Raceway in Burlington, Iowa. Then the Malvern Bank West Series gets back to business at the Shelby County Speedway in Harlan, Iowa on June 12th.
